Bristol based folktronica duo Firewoodisland are Stian Vedøy, who hails from Norway, and Abi Eleri who is Welsh. Together the duo make a modern folk sound – leaning towards the poppier end of that genre. It’s a music they describe as “Mountain-Pop”, in which the duo combine vibrant catchy melodic pop with organic folk instrumentation, glitching electronics and dreamy atmospherics.
Speaking of today’s premiere Firewoodisland say:”‘Looking For Love’ is an explosion of hope. It evokes that feeling you can only get when you drive into the sunset, blasting your favourite music with the windows down, together with your best friends. The lyrics have an important message that you are intrinsically valued and loved just by being. And that true beauty starts the moment you learn to value and love yourself.”
‘Looking For Love‘ is taken from the duo’s new album which they are planning to preview throughout 2023 as monthly singles. The new album’s songs see the band talk about their life stories, their struggles, their challenges and their hopes and dreams.
