Following the announcement of his long-awaited return to Australia for Splendour in the Grass, Icelandic singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and collaborator Ásgeir today announces sideshows in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth this July. This time, he comes armed with brand new material from his highly anticipated second album Afterglow due for release May 5 on Pod via Inertia.
Having secured his status as one of music’s most exciting new voices, Ásgeir will be joined by special guest and one of Australia’s most promising exports, Gordi. Signed to the prestigious US-based Jagjaguwar label (home to the likes of Bon Iver and Unknown Mortal Orchestra), the J Award and FBI SMAC Award nominated songwriter was recently invited to perform with Bon Iver on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Gordi is currently working on her debut album after spending time earlier this year recording in Ásgeir’s native Iceland.
