Born and raised in the fishing village of Húsavík, Icelandic singer-songwriter Axel Flóvent has recently supported artists such as The Paper Kites and Juníus Meyvant in Europe. Axel recorded his first EP Forest Fires back in 2015, in Iceland where the songs were written under the influence of everything from Bon Iver to Bombay Bicycle Club. It yielded an international phenomenon in the form of the title track, generating over 40 million streams. Tapping into the DIY spirit of his earliest recordings, but with a sense of refinement and newfound wisdom You Stay by the Sea will be released on Nettwerk Records on January 15th 2021.

Swedish-Greek singer/songwriter Plàsi has since his appearance supported names such as José González, Hollow Coves, and Henry Jamison around Europe. He introduced himself on the 2016 EP Now & Then, followed by his full-length debut, People, in 2018. After signing to Nettwerk, he built his own mythos with 2019’s Mystery EP, with the title track being praised as “an acoustic folk gem” by The Line of Best Fit and “a sensationally moving folk piece” by Earmilk.
