If you are a fan of the work of James Blake or Oh Wonder, then Firewoodisland’s music will be right up your alley. The duo has made a good impression with features in renowned publications like PopMatters, Earmilk, Clash Magazine, Atwood Magazine, Wonderland Magazine and Q Magazine, as well a song features on Netflix’s Shadowhunters and Global TV’s NURSES.
Firewoodisland has now shared their beautiful and hopeful rendition of the iconic song by Alphaville ‘Forever Young’. RCRD LBL commented, “‘Forever Young’ is reimagined through more modern mediums but carries the same warmth of the original by Alphaville.”
Firewoodisland adds their thoughts, “We’ve always wanted to do our own take on a well-known song. ‘Forever Young’ was one of the most played road trips tunes from Stian’s childhood memories. Talking about a time of real uncertainty, the Cold War, it mirrors the time we are going through in 2020. Our hope was to make a beautiful and heartfelt Firewoodisland rendition, while still respecting the original melodies and lyrics. Hopefully, we’ve done it justice.”
