Afterglow is the title of Icelandic singer songwriter Ásgeir’s highly anticipated new album. In the months and weeks leading up to its release early next month, we’ve been bewitched by many gems off the record, like prismatic Stardust, and ambient entrancing Unbound. Let’s now float away to the sounds of the title track, whose gently tinkling keys and cool skimming vocals place me in a deep blissful trance. Afterglow is a tender orchestral hymnal. It lifts us up gingerly into a phosphorescent sky. Our weary souls feel renewed, our tired hearts revived. I’ve never seen the Northern Lights, something I must do before the day I depart from this earth, but I feel I can see them now in my mind, while I’m listening to Ásgeir’s Afterglow. Pre-order new album Afterglow ahead of its May 5th release date on One Little Indian, here.
