Nach seinem ergreifenden In The Silence von 2014 (ein Qobuzissime-Album!) bietet Ásgeir Trausti Einarsson eine sanfte und traumhafte Vision des Elektrofolk. Der isländische Liedermacher, der in der unberührten Natur von Laugarbakki in einer Musikerfamilie aufgewachsen ist, macht Bon Iver Konkurrenz, denn sein leichtes Falsett erinnert sehr an das von Justin Vernon. 2017, mit dem Album Afterglow, tendiert sein Universum in Richtung Pop, manchmal mehr in Richtung Soul... Drei Jahre später wird Ásgeirs Stil jedoch wieder ernster, bleibt aber noch genauso luftig. Bury the Moon wurde Anfang 2020 veröffentlicht und ist von einer enttäuschten Liebe und dem Drang nach Freiheit inspiriert. Daher der Rückzug in ein kleines Landhaus allein mit der Gitarre. "Ich wollte ein einfaches Album machen, ohne zu viel Aufwand, ohne großes Nachdenken. Einfach nur Lieder, so wie sie sind, und nicht mehr." Auftrag erfüllt. Das Album, das er zusammen mit seinem Vater, dem bekannten isländischen Dichter Einar Georg Einarsson, geschrieben hat, handelt auch von Sehnsucht, von Liebe natürlich und von seinem Heimatland Island – immer eine Inspirationsquelle für ihn. Die Stärke von Bury the Moon liegt darin, dass es dieses Material so lebendig macht wie nie zuvor. Der Schein trügt, denn beim ersten Anhören kann man leicht den Eindruck bekommen, das Werk sei ohne Relief und Tiefe. Ganz im Gegenteil! Und schließlich erinnert uns Ásgeir auch daran, dass er ein großer Meister schöner Melodien und eingängiger Refrains ist. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

There has rarely been a shortage of musical talent emerging from Iceland, an island that is cast away in the northern echelons of the Atlantic Ocean, but which is rich in cultural and artistic talents, with the likes of Björk and Sigur Rós dominating their respective genres across the world. Icelandic tastemakers have also hoisted Ásgeir Trausti's debut album to the number one spot in the charts, a record which additionally scooped top accolades in the 2012 Icelandic Music Awards. Originally released as Dýrð í Dauðaþögn in his homeland, Ásgeir enlisted the help of John Grant to translate the record into English for this international release, and renamed it In the Silence. The melodic indie folk that Ásgeir incorporates here is poised intriguingly between acoustic instruments and electronic elements, and single the "King and Cross" expertly brings the two together in a charming slice of indie pop. The decision to translate the lyrics was wise and subsequently offers a more wide-spread accessibility to his songs that might not have been possible in his native tongue. Ásgeir and Grant have woven together whimsical tales and stories from the original Icelandic text without many obvious adjustments from the original melodies. Although upbeat for the most part -- "Torrent" and "In Harmony" are particular highlights -- there is a constant hint of melancholy that resides in the beauty of Ásgeir's high-pitched and unnervingly emotive vocals, which is brought out in the more brooding moments of the record. The downbeat and bass-driven "Going Home" uncovers an expansive and pensive side of Ásgeir, which is a welcome contrast to the initial sweetness, and at times tweeness, of his melodies and harmonies. Although it's unlikely In the Silence will have quite the same impact on the charts beyond the shores of Iceland, it does suggest another musical gem has been unearthed from the island's formidable pool of talent. © Scott Kerr /TiVo
