Firewoodisland release warm ode to icy winters with ‘Snow (Dripping Woollen Jumpers)’
Firewoodisland, Bon Iver, Novo Amor, James Blake and Vancouver Sleep Clinic.
Indie-pop darlings Firewoodisland have melted hearts again with their new single ‘Snow (Dripping Woollen Jumpers) – an ode to warm childhood memories of cold winters.
The duo both have roots in icy Norway, but are currently based in Cardiff. The track came about from feelings of homesickness after being separated from family. Channelling these feelings into music, the duo have produced a heartfelt tribute to their homeland. The track is earnest without being ostentatious and has a warm, familiar atmosphere.
“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.”
