“Imagine a slightly more idiosyncratic Ben Howard—or to look at it from the opposite side, a somewhat less esoteric Antony Hegarty or Jeff Buckley – becoming the biggest star in the country. That’s what Ásgeir is in Iceland,” the article reads.

“[…] his regular style, which is wistful acoustica, suffused with wintry melancholy and sung with his trademark tremulous warble,” the writer describes Ásgeir Trausti’s hit single ‘Sumargestur.’

Ásgeir Trausti supports Of Monsters and Men at a sold-out gig as part of the Summer Series at Somerset House in London tomorrow night.
