A Youtube video, ‘Juggling Around Iceland’, is currently going viral in America and features the track ‘Nýfallið regn’ by our very own, Ásgeir. So far it has picked up 350,000 views and has been featured on CBS News, MSN and Huffington Post.
Watch the video below:
At only 20 years of age Ásgeir has made a huge impression on the Icelandic music scene - his debut album ‘Dyrd i Daudathogn’ became Iceland’s biggest selling debut album by a domestic artist on it’s release last September, going double platinum and winning him no less than 4 Icelandic Music Awards and a nomination for the Nordic Music Prize earlier this year.
American artist John Grant, currently resident in Iceland, became a huge fan and has collaborated with Ásgeir on an English language version of the album - More news on this soon.
Ásgeir recently released a free 3-track EP ‘The Toe Rag Acoustic Sessions’ - his first recordings in English. Download the EP here.
