21 year old singer/songwriter Ásgeir is somewhat of an Icelandic wunderkind. His debut album Dyrd í dauðathogn has become the biggest and fastest selling debut record by an Icelandic artist, outselling both his fellow labelmate Bjork and Sigur Ros. He's premiered his new video for 'Torrent' today (released 16 December) from his upcoming English language version of that album, In the Silence, set to hit shelves on 27 January. His trademark melancholy voice paired with the bombastic drums are incredibly arresting.

He's headed out on a UK headlining run this December with Farao as support, and all of those dates are listed below.

  • Monday 9th December - Leeds, Wardrobe
  • Tuesday 10th December - Bristol, Exchange
  • Wednesday 11th December - London, Bush Hall
  • Thursday 12th December - Brighton, Green Door Store
  • Sunday 15th December - Glasgow, Broadcast
  • Monday 16th December - Manchester, Deaf Institute
