Axel Flóvent – Forest Fires (EP) now via Trellis Records
Icelandic romantic Axel Flóvent has released his new EP Forest Fires, a back-to-roots stunner that distils the true essence of modern songwriting. Likely to draw comparisons to Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Guillemots and fellow countryman Ásgeir, Forest Fires withholds an essential charm that characterises central themes in its subject matter and more effervescently the story around the songwriter himself.
Based in the tiny Icelandic town Akureyri, Alex Flóvent was organically discovered when the power and authenticity of his bedroom-produced song Beach swooned Newcastle indie label Trellis Records (now based in London) as it raced to nearly 30,000 streams in a month. The discovery of Alex Flóvent is testament to the genuine and sincere soul of his music, giving it the ability to inspire and enchant listeners worldwide.
Flóvent has commented on his pleasure with how Forest Fires illustrates him both sonically and stylistically, revealing that song Beach “talks to everyone who is experiencing such negative emotions that it is affecting those around them, the song is speaking to those frustrated souls who need to emotionally restart their life”.
