12″ EP – Limited Edition Black Vinyl
Following the release of last years lauded Bury The Moon album, Iceland’s Ásgeir return with a brand new EP, The Sky Is Painted Gray Today. Four textured, original tracks that’ve been long gestating and were recorded for the most part in 2019 in Hljodriti, and have been tweaked over the last few months. Tracks The Sky Was Painted Gray Today, Sister and Out On The Edge feature poetic lyrics by Asgeir’s father. They were penned in Icelandic initially and translated into English and reworked with the help of John Grant and Pétur Ben. It also includes the profound Sunday Drive, a detailed retelling of a car accident Ásgeir experienced at the age of 7. The collection encompasses his signature emotive delivery, delicate yet expansive folk, and intricate acoustics.
