Dim the lights and ignite the candles for Bury the Moon, Icelandic Ásgeir’s fourth release. Hibernating in a log cabin with a few instruments, he wanted to fulfil his desire for an immersive, creative experience. The whole result is soothing folktronica teetering on the edge of pop.

Opener Pictures steadily builds with beautiful brass sweeping in, and standout track Breath has a luscious, romantic sound that is goosebump worthy. The songs are certainly not samey, Turn to Gold and Living Water are soulful, while the orchestral Rattled is lyrically descriptive, setting a scene, making it clear to see the effect of the landscape had on Ásgeir. The theme of nature runs through it all, making it a real breath of fresh air.
