Asbjørn: Moonia

I first discovered the music of now 22-year-old Berlin based Danish artist Asbjørn last year and was instantly taken in by the intricate soundscapes he creates on his own or in tandem with his frequent collaborator producer Jonas Tranberg.  This week he dropped his second full-length entitled 'Pseudo Visions', containing eleven tracks. I've chosen the sublime "Moonia" which I find best showcases his stunning vocals.

Several numbered videos were published last year to accompany eight of the songs found on the new album. Like the remaining seven, "Moonia" was curated by fellow Danes Anders Morre and Thomas Dyrhom of visual lab Powerclap.

Asbjørn will tour Denmark in late April and early May; most likely summer dates will be added shortly.
