    'Torrent' is taken from Ásgeir's debut album.

    The English language version 'In The Silence' is out now.


    At just 21 years of age, Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir is a sensation in his domestic music scene with almost 10% of the Icelandic population now owning his debut album, Dyrd í dauðathogn – the biggest and fastest-selling debut by a home grown artist.

    May 2013 saw Ásgeir’s first exposure to UK audiences in support to John Grant - who was also responsible for the English translations of In The Silence and was followed by extensive European dates with fellow countrymen Of Monsters & Men, including a mesmerising appearance at London’s Somerset House.

    With his deft combination of electronic & organic instrumentation, Ásgeir’s vibrant, airy songs - inset with his distinctive melancholic voice have widespread appeal.

    At the start of 2013 the success of Dyrd í dauðathogn was recognised with no less than four Iceland Music Awards and a nomination for the prestigious Nordic Music Prize. Ásgeir appeared at Sonar Reykjavik and by:Larm festivals early in the year before making his US debut in March, including two SXSW shows.
