Beloved Icelandic singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and collaborator, A´sgeir, returns to Australia for select tour dates in May 2020. The tour will bring Asgeir’s forthcoming third album “Bury The Moon” (out February 7th) to Australian audiences for the first time.
The enigmatic artist makes music that penetrates a little deeper than most. His debut album soared to success in his native land, before English language edition “In The Silence” connected with an entirely new audience.
Here in Australia, it was spotlighted as triple j Feature Album and both the album and it’s lead single ‘King and Cross’ achieved gold ARIA accreditation.
That year, 'King and Cross' clocked in at number 10 in The Hottest 100. In 2017 “Afterglow” scored A´sgeir's second triple j Feature Album and the station co-presented his sold-out July 2017 Splendour In The Grass sideshows.
A´sgeir's first Splendour sojourn in 2015 saw him return to Australia just two months after supporting alt-J on their national stadium tour and more recently, returning in 2018 for 3 very special recital hall shows in Sydney and Melbourne, displaying his innate ability to create a sense of intimacy in a room occupied by thousands.
An artist of rare scope, sincerity, and emotion, his next step, “Bury The Moon” might well be A´sgeir's bravest, and his most enduring.
"A self-confessed loner, (Asgeir’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 A´sgeir’s work as uniquely his, is his inimitable voice." - Music Feeds
"A wonderful atmosphere... with A´sgeir’s amazing falsetto vocals enveloping the crowd.” - Reverb
