New Release: HM Johnsen – ‘Alone’
HM Johnsen is an indie rock singer-songwriter from Norway who in recent years has embarked on an incredible personal musical journey: from blues, to rock, to his ‘epiphany’ of moving into experimental indie rock. Now we see the artist shift once again into a different style with the delicate upcoming single ‘Alone’. Being the first song HM Johnsen has written on piano, the emotive ballad shows a vulnerable side to the artist. The mood of the song is initially captured with wistful and powerful vocals underpinned by soft guitar and melodic piano chords. As ‘Alone’ comes to a close, HM Johnsen builds on the melancholic soundscapes by introducing warm vintage synths and haunting vocal melodies
Speaking on the new EP, Astræa says, “The ‘Looking Up’ EP is a journey of moving through the dark and stepping into the light. It’s about embracing the future while being proud of how the scars of yesterday have shaped who we are and what path we are on today. This collection of songs was produced by me from my home studio over the various lockdowns of last year and I’m so excited for them to take flight.”
