Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir releases new single ‘Snowblind’ – OUTInPerth | LGBTQIA+ News and Culture | OUTInPerth
As one of Iceland’s most successful exports, singer-songwriter Ásgeir has developed his own brand of textured and thoughtful folk-pop.
On October 28, he will release his fourth album Time in my hands through One Little Independent Records.
Along with the announcement, Ásgeir shared the scintillating new single Snow guardan icy electronic ballad where Ásgeir’s singular and pure voice weaves a narrative reminiscent of the sparse and dark roads of his Icelandic hometown.
Time in my hands sees Ásgeir in a state of self-reflection and experimentation, having spent much of the past few years at home and in the studio deeply engrossed in writing, recording, translating and producing.
On this album, he entered new areas of composition, sensitively layering acoustics with electronics and brass. As with some of his previous works, especially those from 2017 Afterglow and 2020s bury the moonÁsgeir plays with the euphoric and choral elements of electronic pop music while keeping a grip on the introspective, vocal style of acoustics that made him famous.
Snowblind is now available.
