Axel Flóvent releases new dreamy single 'Driving Hours'
7 February 2020
This leading up to his new EP 'Tourist' that will be out March 27th
Born and raised in the Northern fishing village of Húsavík, Axel recorded his first EP 'Forest Fires', it was here where the songs were written under the influence of everything from Bon Iver to Bombay Bicycle Club. It yielded an international phenomenon in the form of the title track, generating over 40 million streams. At 19 years old, he moved into his first apartment in Amsterdam and “felt so isolated.” He admits, “I was supposed to be in a music mecca, but I never left the apartment.” So, he traded Amsterdam for the seaside town of Brighton in the UK where he recorded the EP 'Youthfull Hearts'. Living in Brighton gave Axel “the clarity to move to Iceland.” Last year, Axel returned to Iceland, and chose to plant roots in the capital Reykjavík. Tapping into the DIY spirit of his earliest recordings, but with a sense of refinement and newfound wisdom, Axel recorded 'Tourist' with Grimble.
The song is about getting in your own way and letting fear blind you from the truth. It’s about breaking a relationship by overthinking everything and being indecisive.” Filmed in Iceland and directed by filmmaker Magnus Andersen, the video captures that sense of isolation and desolation when trapped within one’s own mind.
