Trausti grew up in small town in the northwest of Iceland - the town of Laugarbakki. They live in Reykjavík now.
But no matter where you live in Iceland, when you're a musician in the small Nordic island country, any performance stage is far - whether it be in London, New York or LA.
Trausti admits being in Iceland can be isolating.
But for Trausti, things are starting to happen for him outside of Iceland.
It may be because of "In the Silence" was recorded in English.
Trausti's debut album from 2012, "Dýrð í dauðaþögn," was recorded in Icelandic.
"Then we translated the whole album - which is 'In the Silence,'" Trausti says. "It was released worldwide. We've done one album up until now and the process has always been, writing the Icelandic lyrics first and then we translate into English."
It's a little different for an artist to record an album, and then a year later, basically re-do the whole thing in a different language.
But the distance isn't stopping Trausti. He's coming to the US in June with "In the Silence" for a few dates, including a stop at the Bonnarro Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.
