Enigmatic Icelandic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ásgeir brings his highly anticipated third album Bury The Moon to Australian audiences for the first time at QPAC.
Expertly composed and transcendental in approach, Ásgeir’s melancholic, electronic-folk and ambitious electro-pop beats penetrate a little deeper than most. His debut album soared to success in his native land, becoming the fastest selling debut from a homegrown artist in Iceland, breaking all previous records and outselling Björk and Sigur Rós.
The English language edition of his debut album In The Silence was spotlighted as triple j Feature Album in 2014. Both the album and its lead single “King and Cross” achieved gold ARIA accreditation and “King and Cross” came in 10th in triple j’s Hottest 100.
In 2017, his second album Afterglow scored Ásgeir’s second triple j Feature Album and the station co-presented his sold out July 2017 Splendour In The Grass sideshows.
An artist of rare scope, sincerity, and emotion, his latest album Bury The Moon, released in February 2020, might well be Ásgeir’s bravest, and his most enduring.
His innate ability to make even the largest of spaces feel intimate will pull you in and leave you yearning for more.
“A self-confessed loner, (Ásgeir’s) set was melancholic, contemplative and eerily beautiful, focusing solely on his voice with his band only enhancing what was already there.” Isolated Nation
“The musical asset that, more than any other, identifies Ásgeir’s work as uniquely his, is his inimitable voice.” Music Feeds
“A wonderful atmosphere ... with Ásgeir’s amazing falsetto vocals enveloping the crowd.” Reverb
