Born in the diminutive hamlet of Laugarbakki, Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir specializes in intimate, soulful songs that span from indie electronic to atmospheric folk. An overnight sensation in his native Iceland, where he released his 2012 debut album Dýrð í Dauðaþögn at the age of 21, Ásgeir quickly broke every regional record in the book - almost ten percent of the population of Iceland own the album. In 2013, in collaboration with American singer-songwriter John Grant, who helped to translate the lyrics, Ásgeir released an English version of Dýrð í Dauðaþögn (called In the Silence) on the One Little Indian label. It shone on the charts in several countries, including the UK and Australia. His follow-up album Afterglow broke from Dýrð í Dauðaþögn's acoustic guitar and wistful electronic tracks to tackle bolder, more experimental electronic textures, proving that Ásgeir is a phenomenally flexible, multi-talented artist not to be missed.
