Ásgeir – “Torrent”

Iceland’s Ásgeir crafts beautiful and delicate folk-pop songs that pull me closer with every listen (See “Dreaming” below). However, it is the more raucous “Torrent” that first caught my ear with its oversized drums barreling right through my speakers! This guy has some serious talent. I’m excited for him to break here in the US. Check out these numbers…

At just 21 years of age, Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir is a sensation in his domestic music scene with almost 10% of the Icelandic population now owning his debut album, Dyrd í dauðathogn – the biggest and fastest-selling debut by a home grown artist.
