“The eerie Underneath It, the gently throbbing I Know You Know and the glitch Unbound will appeal to fans of Bon Iver and James Blake”
The Sunday Times
“…shivers with precision and longing..”
Icelandic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ásgeir is set to release brand new remix of ‘I Know You Know’, by post-classical musician Niklas Paschburg (7K!). The original track is the latest single from the chart-topping artist’s recently released second album Afterglow, out now on Pod via Inertia Music.
Afterglow is the follow-up to Ásgeir’s debut album In The Silence. The album became the fastest-selling debut in Icelandic history and even out-performed debut releases from fellow Icelandic artists Björk and Sigur Rós. Afterglow leaves behind the folk-tinged acoustics of In The Silenceand dives into melancholic electronica in its purest form. Ásgeir balances icy electronic shades of Bon Iver, James Blake and Anohni with soul, R&B, and even gospel influences from different eras and places.
Niklas Paschburg is only 23 years old – he was born in Hamburg in 1994 – but he knows how to charm and bewitch with melodies and notes; mesmerising sounds and a cinematic atmosphere, intense crescendo and a pop flavour that moves and fascinates. Following his first EP Tuur mang Welten, he has recently released his debut album Oceanic with 7K! on 8th February 2018: a moving trip full of both melancholy and energy; twelve instrumental songs between neo-classical, ambient and electronic music, inspired by nature.
Ásgeir will return to Australia this April for Byron Bay Bluesfest as well as headline theatre dates in Sydney and Melbourne.
