Just last night, I was telling my friend about Icelandic musician Ásgeir and how incredibly brilliant he is. I babbled about how amazing his debut album In The Silence is, and how huge he is his native country since its release. I’m waiting for that success to carry over to this side of the world. This man writes some goosebump inducing, beautiful music that sounds like a blend of Sigur Ros, Bon Iver, and even Radiohead at times. I’ve featured some of his tunes in the past, including Torrent, Going Home, and King and Cross, all stand outs from the debut. Turns out, Going Home is the next single off the album, and Ásgeir has share a B-side that will accompany it on April 7 on One Little Indian. It’s aptly titled Dreaming. Have a listen, and you’ll know why. The lush gem is exquisite yet mournful, gentle yet powerfully emotional. Sigh. And sigh again. I can only wish that Ásgeir will tour here soon. I’m SO there when he does. In the meantime, though it’s been way overdone by everyone, check out his pleasant soothing cover of Wrecking Ball below. And revisit his other tunes on his Soundcloud.
