Handsome Tours is thrilled to announce the return of beloved Icelandic singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and collaborator, Ásgeir, to Australia in April this year. Ásgeir will perform two special headline shows at Sydney City Recital Hall and Melbourne Recital Centre. Ásgeir wowed sold out crowds at his shows last year in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth as well as his performance at the 2017 Splendour In The Grass Festival.
From the Icelandic town of Laugarbakki, populated by just 40 people, Ásgeir is every bit as introverted, humble and unassuming as he is gifted. The Icelandic version of the album, Dyrd í dauðathogn, became the fastest selling debut from a home grown artist in Iceland, breaking all previous records and outselling Bjork and Sigur Ros.
Ásgeir’s latest album AFTERGLOW, released last year, has received rave reviews and was named triple j feature album alongside his debut album In The Silence. Diving head first into melancholic, melodic electronica in its purest form, first single ‘Unbound’ is a stunning, yearning piece of music. Second single, the ambitious electro-pop ‘Stardust’ follows on from the tradition of his breakout 2013 track ‘King and Cross’ which saw him instantly added to radio playlists across the country.
