Japan Tour Promo


Asonat released their debut album in April 2012 and received good responses from critics and music fans. In December that same year the band released a follow up single entitled Forever We Ran with three new tracks. The track Rökkurró was featured on the compilation Made in Iceland VI, which showcases the latest fresh music from Iceland.

In 2014 the band released their second full-length album entitled Connection. The album finds the original duo of Ásgrímsson and Guðmundsson expanding into a trio that now encapsulates, their often go-to, French vocalist Oléna Simon. Connection also finds the band writing more from their respective parts of Europe. Their current bases of operation being Estonia, Iceland and France made the creation process a bit more challenging but the trio already has such a ‘connection’ that they can come together to make some of the best electronic-pop of their collective carriers regardless of geographic location or cultural background.

In sharp juxtaposition to the artistic connection between the trio the underlying lyrical theme of the album is often about missed opportunities and missed connections. For the album’s single the trio teamed up with Maga&Seba to create the first official music video for Asonat. Connection is subtle, gratifyingly warm and a perfect slice of vocally biased electronic music.
