For years, Björk and Sigur Rós were the most notable export products from Iceland. Nowadays you can add singer-songwriter Ásgeir to that list. The Overwhelming success of his debut album 'Dýrð í dauðaþögn' ('In The Silence'), set the bar high for the second one. With 'Afterglow' however, he certainly managed to remain at the same level of his first record. 'Afterglow' balances between the icy electronica of Bon Iver, James Blake and Ahnoni and soul, R&B and even gospel, influences he picked up during his tour. All this gets intertwined effortlessly to one whole with Ásgeir's unique vocals as a binder.
