Asgeir has released a dramatic and touching track called “Pictures” Ásgeir had Iceland’s biggest selling debut album by a homegrown artist at just 20 years old, outselling Björk, Sigur Rós and Of Monsters & Men, winning 4 Icelandic Music Awards and a prestigious Nordic Music Prize nomination. Recalling Bon Iver’s unworldly vocals and James Blake’s graceful electronic touch, for this record Ásgeir escaped into the Icelandic countryside to spend a winter writing, sometimes with his poet father Einar Georg Einarsson, and English translation help from American songwriter John Grant….It has more of what NPR called “a sweet spot between emotion and mystique” in his music.
The song is beautiful and sad at the same time, the music with the horns will touch your heart especially while watching their video. The vocals were done very well and made you feel like you were there. You won’t be disappointed. Be sure to listen for yourself above and leave your feedback below. Add this to your playlist.
