23-year-old multi-instrumentalist Auðunn Lúthersson cut his teeth playing with Icelandic hardcore and noise-rock bands. After seeing James Blake at Sónar 2013 he reinvented himself under the pseudonym Auður (pronounced “Author”) and swifted over to electronic. He quickly got noticed by the Red Bull Music Academy where he was selected from a pool of 4500+ applicants for a term in Montreal. Before hitting Montreal he signed with IMAGEM Music and has just dropped his much anticipated debut album, Alone. Alongside the album visual, Auður has also just dropped the stream for latest single ‘Another One’.
The visual album was directed by Brooklyn based Icelandic director Snorri Sturluson.
