She has been extremely successful in the Icelandic market with interest from all over the world. She has been writing and performing since she was a teenager and never wants to stop exploring emotions through creating and now embarks on her next chapter aiming for London, Scandinavia and the rest of the world. 

“I like the color yellow. I love people that laugh and I adore flowers. I was 17 when I released my first EP and all of my music is about love in one way or another.”

Axel Flovent

Born and raised in the Northern fishing village of Húsavík, singer-songwriter Axel Flóvent has recently supported artists such as The Paper Kites, Juníus Meyvant in Europe and Radical Face in North America. 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. At 19 years old, he moved to Amsterdam. He admits, "I was supposed to be in a music mecca, but I never left the apartment." So, he traded Amsterdam for the seaside town of Brighton when Axel felt a strong pull to return to Iceland and chose to plant roots in the capital Reykjavík.

After all his traveling he finished writing his debut album ‘You Stay by the Sea’ about the search for a place to feel at peace. Tapping into the DIY spirit of his earliest recordings, but with a sense of refinement and newfound wisdom. ‘You Stay by the Sea’ is out now via Nettwerk Records.

Hermigervill, as an active part of the Reykjavík DJ scene, has made something of a niche out of unearthing lost Icelandic musical gems from the past and bringing them to the dancefloors of today, and is currently working on a comprehensive series of re-issue compilations which will soon be available, presenting this previously forgotten musical heritage to an international audience.
