About this item
'Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and collaborator; the mighty Ásgeir returns with highly anticipated third album ‘Bury The Moon’. The Icelandic artist returns to his folk roots for lead single ‘Youth’ written in collaboration with his admired poet father, the song documents his childhood growing up in his small Icelandic town, unburdened by worry and full of unbridled joy. The stunning new track swells with horns and hushed acoustic guitars, Ásgeir’s unmistakable honey-soaked vocal soaring across weaving instrumental melodies, culminating in a anthemic peak that exudes nostalgia.
Barry says: Imagine the gorgeous vocal prowess and melodic inclination of the great John Grant, mixed with a more meditative folky instrumental focus, and you're something close to the swooning beauty of Asgeir. It's a triumph of an album, and absolutley enhanced by the duality of the English / Icelandic versions.
