The Guardian has selected Ásgeir as their ‘New band of the day’ naming him “Iceland’s biggest musical export since Björk”. To read the article click here.
At just 21 years of age Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir has become a sensation in his domestic music scene - staggeringly, almost 10% of the Icelandic population now own his debut album ‘Dyrd í dauðathogn’ – the English version, translated by John Grant, will be released worldwide this autumn as ‘In The Silence’. The Icelandic version has now gone triple platinum in Iceland and won Ásgeir 4 Icelandic Music Awards and a nomination for the Nordic Music Prize earlier this year.
Debut single ‘King and Cross’ is out 12th August 2013 and is available for pre-order here.
Ásgeir supports Of Monsters and Men throughout the UK and Europe this summer. Click here for a full list of dates.
