Crystal Tears

There's no doubt that the folk scene has been a growing factor in pop music ever since Mumford and Sons had their first number one. Now we are seeing a massive blow up of great artist creating amazing folk music that break the barriers. Ásgeir comes to us from Iceland, one of the greatest areas for folk music to come from. In his song "King and Cross", off of his latest album In the Silence, Ásgeir combines the folk sounds of similar to Bear's Den and adds a Miike Snow spin on it with the playful synth in the chorus. Ásgeir is doing everything right with a sold out shows in Scandinavian countries. He's definitely bound to be a super star in Europe, and hopefully, he will make a splash here in the U.S. soon.
