A compelling album.
on 5 March 2014
The first time I listened to this I couldn't work out if I liked it or not - the high falsetto harmonies mixed with the woozy sometimes-folky, sometimes-electronic music make for an interesting mix. I've always thought that the best albums don't have an immediate impact though...
Almost as soon as the album had finished, I had another listen, then another, simply trying to pin down my own opinion of the music. The melodies are sung in such a pure fashion, deceptively simple tunes really, but it draws you in and holds up well to, indeed rewards, repeat listens. Over the last few days I have found myself singing snippets of songs, eager to come back and listen to more.
At the time of writing, Asgeir has sold out the Union Chapel in London, and I can easily imagine this album becoming hugely popular in the coming months. Even if it doesn't, it's well worth just one play... just to see... it might be your new favourite album....
