Axel Flóvent just wrapped up a European/UK tour with The Paper Kites and has started a North American tour with Radical Face. Axel returned to Iceland this year, and chose to plant roots in the capital Reykjavík. Tapping into the DIY spirit of his earliest recordings, but with a sense of refinement and newfound wisdom, Axel recorded the ‘Tourist’ EP (March 27th) with producer Ian Grimble (1975, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Daughter, Bear’s Den, Mumford & Sons).
Axel speaks to you in ‘Driving Hours’. It’s a contentious self regulation of a single, where the direct communication to thyself, is the most consuming. A realization of what had been done, is hard to swallow and accept. A petulant childlike reaction, bubbles up and delivers, in surprise and malice.
But you’re wiser than your years. And When Axel sings, he’s guiding you to that holy place of sanity. Improprieties are swept to one column of categories, to be dissected and rearranged. Love is what it is. Credibility for going onward, is that challenge for survival and turning of the chapters.
‘Driving Hours’ is a beautiful song, of what we all can relate.
