Indie-folk duo Firewoodisland have released their latest single ‘Snow(Dripping Woollen Jumpers)’ via Warner Music UK.
The duo is no strangers to the circuit, and have already racked up a host of support from tastemaker publications and fans alike. Their cover of Alphaville’s ‘Forever Young’ was picked up for Airbnb’s ad campaign and they have had their music featured on Netflix and Global TV.
‘Snow‘(Dripping Woollen Jumpers)’ manages to be emotional without feeling overly sentimental. The duo hail from Norway, so naturally, snow forms part of their collective childhood memory, and the track was written as an ode to growing up with white winters.
“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.”
Musically, the track is quiet and reserved, making for a subtle and intimate listen. The warmth of the lyrics and theme is balanced out by a spacious arrangement, and littered with interesting sonic embellishments.
“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” , they noted.
