Indie pop duo Firewoodisland uplift hearts with Alphaville song
Indie pop duo Firewoodisland uplifts with their original take of classic Alphaville song ‘Forever Young’, which was released via Warner Music UK. Firewoodisland consists of multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Stian Vedøy and Abi Eleri, who have won the hearts of television shows like Netflix’s Shadowhunters and Global TV’s NURSES among the list.
Muze FM share their thoughts on the new single, “Long-time music duo Firewoodisland sound has been compared to the work of contemporary acts like James Blake and Oh Wonder, their new song cover of Alphaville’s original song ‘Forever Young’ shows the duo’s ability to stay true to their sound, but not losing the emotional integrity of the original masterpiece.”
Firewoodisland talks about the re-work of the Alphaville original, “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.”
