Track Of The Week: 14/12/16
Axel Flóvent – Silently
Axel Flóvent’s new single is a back-to-roots stunner from the Icelandic romantic, who is already drawing comparisons to the likes of Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Guillemots and fellow countryman Ásgeir.
Based in a tiny Icelandic fishing village, Axel Flóvent was organically discovered thanks to the power and authenticity of his bedroom-produced demos. Before long, tracks from his debut EP ‘Forest Fires’ were streaming in the millions, testament to the genuine and sincere soul of his music, which possesses the ability to inspire and enchant listeners worldwide. Despite Iceland’s remote location, Alex Flóvent listeners each possess a deep and ruminating connection to his music, a tribute to how the modern world can bring us all closer together and bond us in united emotion. Listening to Axel Flóvent is like experiencing a private performance, such is the power of his music to connect with your inner-self and transport you to his stunning homeland. Embracing itself around the listener, like a warm and loving cocoon against the often emotionless world around us, ‘Silently’ is as authentic and pure as music can be.
