Asonat – Connection
Electro-poppers Asonat have a brand new album coming out on September 30th – it’s called ‘Connection’ and we can confirm that it’s a beautiful thing, Icelandophiles!
‘Connection’ finds the original duo of Ásgrímsson and Jónas Thór Guðmundsson expanding into a trio that now includes French vocalist Oléna Simon.
And why the name ‘Connection’? Well! Their current bases of operation are Estonia, Iceland and France, which made the process of making an album something of a challenge, 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,” they assure us. So there you go. Conversely, the underlying lyrical theme of the album concerns “missed opportunities and missed connections.” Intriguing indeed!
For the album’s single the trio asked us to create Asonat’s first, and soon to be revealed, official music video.
