Ásgeir - Torrent

Feels Like: Jonsi, Volcano Choir, Explosions In The Sky

And the hits keep coming from Iceland!....No, really. Im serious. I did not think that would be something that I would be saying. But it is. And I am. Ásgeir is an Icelandic singer-songwriter and "Torrents" is another one of those room-filling nordic epics. The melody starts with a simple looped piano riff and Ásgeir immediately expands the feel of the song with that same sort of harmony that we have become accustomed to hearing from the likes of Sigur Rós that always seems to create sensation of space. Get a little epic on your Sunday and check it out below!
