Departing his homeland of Iceland for a few days back in frosty February, singer/songwriter Ásgeir Trausti soon found himself in London’s Toerag Studios recording a collection of acoustic tracks. Transforming his mellow and atmospheric works into simple, delicate and extremely memorable performances, Ásgeir has now unveiled a video of a performance of ‘On That Day’ to give an insight into these intimate sessions.
