Ásgeir

Oct 2, 2017 • 8:00 pm

Ásgeir returns to music with the release of his daringly electronic new album, Afterglow. The 24-year-old Icelandic singer-songwriter takes a brave new step in a remarkable story that remains rooted in his countryside hometown of Laugarbakki, where he wrote his favorite songs of the album.

Slowly drifting organ sounds, manipulated piano experimentation, and more characterize the album, which balances icy electronic tones with soul, R&B and even gospel influences from a spectrum of eras and places.

As a teenager, the artist first began composing, having grown up surrounded by instruments thanks to his organ-player mother, accordion-player father, violinist sister, and guitarist older brother, a member of the Icelandic reggae band, Hjálmar. After discovering the likes of Elliott Smith and Sufjan Stevens as well as Icelandic heroes Sigur Ros, Mugison, and Lay Low in his early teens and getting his first guitar, Ásgeir never looked back.

The artist’s raw, emotional honesty was threaded through songs about dragons, gods, and wilderness on his last album. With a new album as gently boundary-pushing and moving as Afterglow, Ásgeir creates music that is cathartic for fans.
