With a voice comparable to those of Justin Vernon and James Blake, Icelandic singer-songwriter Ásgeir, aka Ásgeir Trausti, has been a big deal in his home country for the better part of a decade. He rocketed to stardom despite (or maybe because of) the chilly intimacy of his 2012 debut album, Dýrð í dauðaþögn, featuring mostly Icelandic lyrics penned by his poet father. He boosted his international prospects with 2014’s In the Silence, an English-version reworking of Dýrð í dauðaþögn, and sang in English again for 2017’s altogether bolder and more electronic Afterglow.
