Back to the roots for the young Icelander with a third album filled with acoustic beauties. It’s a lighting form another world, even more beautiful on stage. First, we have to thank him for the musical work, created in parallel to the javelin throws he was training (he’s still the best of the discipline in his country). Olympic ambitions put aside, Asgeir Trausti took the guitar and never let her go. He learned to love his voice, to explore his deeply moving sense of melodies and even decided to translate his songs in English (thanks to the multilingual John Grant) to welcome a broader audience. Asgeir fills all the Icelandic fantasies – and don’t ask us to forget them: when we see him live, we cry even though we do not understand the words, we feel in a blanket of moss, we communicate with the elves.
