Ásgeir Trausti – Dýrð í dauðaþögn (Original Icelandic lyrics version)

CD SCD 560 (Sena, 2012)

At just 21 years of age, the Icelandic release of Dýrð í dauðaþögn made Ásgeir Trausti (or just Ásgeir, as he is known abroad) something of a sensation in his native Iceland. His beautiful, melancholic songs and their unusual poetry – the lyrics are mostly written by Ásgeir’s 72 year old father - have captured the imagination of the Icelandic public, the album becoming the country’s biggest selling debut by a home grown artist with almost 10% of the Icelandic population now owning a copy.


In 2013 the success of Dýrð í dauðaþögn was recognised with no less than four Iceland Music Awards and a nomination for the prestigious Nordic Music Prize.

Lengthy spates on the road with John Grant and fellow countrymen Of Monsters & Men have followed.
