Song of the Week: King And Cross by Ásgeir

Ásgeir

If you haven’t checked out Icelandic folk acoustic artist Ásgeir yet, then do yourself a favour and get his stunning song “King And Cross” on your current playlist. Right now.

Besides exhibiting that fabled European beauty with his lazy beanie, neat stubble and icy blue eyes (ahem, back on track now Erin), he creates magic with thick harmonies and simple, bright guitar lines. Think a little of the rhythm of Sigur Rós with a touch of echoey vocal stylings like Dustin Tebbutt.

 

Like what you hear? Just wait till you check out his live sets:

 

He strikes a nice balance between relaxing yet energising in his music – something that’s often hard to find in the genre!

You can listen to more of Ásgeir’s sweet tunes in his new album In The Silence or catch him on his Australian tour later this year.

    • May not understand a word of it, but he’s speaking my language with those tunes Amer! I think I connect more to the English stuff though – just because it’s my first language and he seems to sing it so naturally. -Erin
