Bristol alt-folk duo Firewoodisland share thrilling single ‘Who Knew’
A folktronica duo who have been on my radar for years, Firewoodisland create delicate music with layers of integrity throughout.
Labeling their sound ‘Mountain-Pop’, combining the catchiness of pop with electronics, the sensibilities of indie and organic elements from folk, the new single ‘Who Knew’ is a prime example of the band’s unique style.
Speaking about the track the duo share: “It tells a story about meeting a person that captivates your whole being and changes your world views for the better.
Who Knew was written during a weekend retreat to the Isle of Wight. Abi turned to me (Stian) and said ‘you’ve never written a love song about me’, so he wrote this song.
It’s a story about meeting a person that captivates your whole being and changes your world views for the better – basically the story of how we met in university halls in Cardiff.”
Focusing on relatability and a more raw lyrical style than previous albums, the duo hope that their honesty will encourage others struggling with difficulties, and inspire people to grasp for their highest goals and live life to its fullest.
“Who Knew” is an ethereal, otherworldly single with a grounded nature and organic beauty comparable to Bon Iver.
