You could say that Ásgeir is Iceland’s answer to Bon Iver. His gorgeous harmonies, flawless falsetto, and upredictable lyrics/chord structure are reminiscent of the best of Iver, an American indie music legend.
In “King & Cross” Ásgeir truly delivers the latest Indie Earworm.
Ásgeir Trausti was born in Reykjavik, Iceland, in 1992. His debut, Dýrð í dauðaþögn, went on to become a smash hit in Iceland after touring with the Lovely Lion and his own eponymous band.
While Ásgeir has not received much attention in the States, his next release “In the Silence” might just change that.
With the success of artists like Sigur Ros, Bjork, and Jonsi, American indie music fans will surely flock to the sweet folk-based music Ásgeir has to offer.
Doesn’t hurt that he’s totally Fuzz worthy (*gorgeous*).
