Auður is just about to hit the stage at Tjarnarbíó. That young fucker just up and appeared from out of nowhere a few weeks ago, full-fledged, and with some wonderful music to his name. We were impressed enough to splash him on our cover (along with a few others – check it out, it looks great) — and we’re not alone. That fancy Red Bull Music Academy thing hand-picked him to be part of that special music school they run, where fancy teachers like Pharrell Williams teach young’uns the tricks of the trade.

Last week, he premiered the first piece of music the world gets to hear from him. It’s not his best track – it’s a wonderful track, sure, but we’ve heard some of the others and they are even wonderfuller – but it’s still a great goddamn track. And the video, set in a local library, is sexy and suave.

Here, check it out:

Auður takes the stage at Tjarnarbíó at 7pm. You should check him out.
