Icelandic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Asgeir is set to release brand new remix to 'I Know You Know', by post-classical musician Niklas Paschburg (7K!). The original track is the latest single from the chart=topping artists' recently released second album Afterglow, out now on Pod via Inertia Music.
Afterglow is the follow-up to Asgeir's debut album, In The Silence. The album became the fastest-selling debut in Icelandic history and even out-performed debut releases from from fellow Icelandic artists Bjork and Sigur Ross. Afterglow leaves behind the folk-tinged acoustics of In The Silence and dives into melancholic electronica in its purest form. Asgeir balances icy electronic shades of Bon Iver, James Blake and Anohni with soul, R&B, and even gospel influences from different eras and places.
Niklas Paschburg is only 23 years old- he was born in Hamburg in 1994- but he knows how to charm and bewitch with melodies and notes, mesmerising sounds from a cinematic atmosphere, intense crescendo and a pop flavour that moves and fascinates. Following his first EP Tuur mang Welten, he has recently released his debut album Oceanic with 7K! on February 8 2018, a moving trip full of both melancholy and energy, twelve instrumental songs between neo-classical, ambient and electronic music, inspired by nature.
Asgeir will return to Australia this April for Byron Bay Bluesfest as well as headline theatre dates in Sydney and Melbourne.

Sunday, April 1 | City Recital Hall, Sydney NSW
