In the Silence is the stirring full-length debut from Icelandic artist Ásgeir. His music is a cool mixture of electronic and folk, delivered in a haunting falsetto. During this live concert at the famed Electric Lady Studios, Ásgeir performs songs from his album and an inspired Nirvana cover.

The debut album from Ásgeir Trausti has already won several awards and broken sales records in his native Iceland. Now, thanks to translation help from John Grant, he's releasing an English version of the album, called In the Silence. He recently stopped by Studio A to share some of his music and to talk about how the album came together.
