Stian Vedøy and Abi Eleri are Firewoodisland, and they’ve just released their new single ‘Snow(Dripping Woollen Jumpers)’ – a beautifully harmonised indie-folk ballad centred around the memory of childhood winters.
The duo’s strength seems to lie in Stian’s assured vocals and Abi’s innate ability to place a perfect harmony in the perfect place. The duo call their sound “mountain-pop” – especially fitting for this track. Musically and thematically it is honest and earthy, and retains a clarity of musical and lyrical vision that has become customary for Firewoodisland.
They explain the origins of the track: “Having not seen our Norwegian family for a long while, this song was written as a trip down memory lane. A throwback to being a child enveloped in the atmosphere during winter – the freezing shimmering snowflakes descending from nowhere, the safety of a warm living room lit by a fireplace. To complement the sentiment, we decided to keep the track relatively stripped-down but with a lot of little details and cinematic elements. We’re hoping for people to share in the warm memories and connect with the nostalgia of snowy winters.”
