Firewoodisland – Hollow Coves (Review)

Bristol-based Norwegian/Welsh duo Firewoodisland return with their latest release “Hollow Coves”. Released September 27th, the track has received support from BBC Radio 6 and media outlets across the internet. Comprised of Stian Vedøy and Abi Eleri, the duo ignite a folk-pop sound, drawing influences to artists such as Bon Iver and Of Monsters and Men. 

Labelling their sound as ‘mountain pop’, they combine fragrances of memorable pop music with the vulnerability of indie. Soaring the soundscape with falsetto vocals, the experimental number fuses a fresh feeling of gaining hope again after losing it. Stian and Abi stated: Hollow Coves is about reaching the point of having nothing left to give and meeting someone with a fresh perspective who breathes new life into those empty places. It acts as a reminder that we’re not made to do life by ourselves.” Accompanied by elegance and beauty, the surreal production feels close to nature. Another strong single in the band’s discography. 

Score: 4/5
