Icelandic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ásgeir is set to release brand new remix of I Know You Know, by post-classical musician Niklas Paschburg (7K!). The original track is the latest single from the chart-topping artist’s recently released second album Afterglow. Listen to the rework of I Know You Know here.
Afterglow is the follow-up to Ásgeir’s debut album In The Silence. The album became the fastest-selling debut in Icelandic history and even out-performed debut releases from fellow Icelandic artists Björk and Sigur Rós. Afterglow leaves behind the folk-tinged acoustics of In The Silence and dives into melancholic electronica in its purest form. Ásgeir balances icy electronic shades of Bon Iver, James Blake and Anohni with soul, R&B, and even gospel influences from different eras and places.
Niklas Paschburg is only 23 years old - he was born in Hamburg in 1994 - but he knows how to charm and bewitch with melodies and notes; mesmerising sounds and a cinematic atmosphere, intense crescendo and a pop flavour that moves and fascinates. Following his first EP “Tuur mang Welten”, he has recently released his debut album ‘Oceanic’ with 7K! on 8th February 2018: a moving trip full of both melancholy and energy; twelve instrumental songs between neo-classical, ambient and electronic music, inspired by nature.
