Ásgeir is yet another Icelandic artist who’s music has become recently popularized in the U.S. At the young age of twenty-two, Ásgeir Trausti has already released his sophomore album titled, In The Silence, which hit iTunes early 2014. This harmonious set of tracks became an instant hit to English-speaking natives, as it is his first album performed in English. We expected nothing less than a melodic, folksy sound to come out of In The Silence, while it emulates the same tranquil style of most popular Icelandic artists such as Of Monsters and Men, Jónsi or Sigur Rós. However, London Grammar’s Dot Major recently remixed the most generally admired track, “King And Cross,” by cultivating a haunting texture over this foot-tapping hit. Major adds a dismal piano to the beginning as well as layers Ásgeir’s both low and falsetto vocals on top of one another. Similar to London Grammar, “King and Cross (remix)” develops crisp beats that are more pronounced which in return creates a sense of suspense. Enjoy the pulsating chords and take a listen!
