Since his first releases in 2014, Mountain Bird has received radio airplay from BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Radio X, Absolute Radio, Amazing Radio, and garnered fans from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Clash, The 405, and Ja Ja Ja.
Mountain Bird reveals his first new song of 2019, the brooding electronica of ‘Quit’. The single, which features vocals from the producer-turned-artist himself, will be the first taken from a brand new EP – further details of which will be announced shortly.
Mountain Bird (aka aka Adam Öhman) has become known for his mesmerising, synth-laden melodies and sleek future-bass styled beats – painting a picture of dreamy Scandinavian melancholy. Last year he released an EP ‘Cubism’ which received worldwide critical acclaim.
‘Quit’ is a song about self-sufficiency and taking responsibility for your life and success. “I wrote this when I had moved to Berlin alone to write new songs, and I was really hesitant about all the drastic choices I had made by this time in my life. I’d never lived outside of Sweden before” explains Adam, “I spent a lot of time alone, and I needed a comforting voice, so I decided to create one for myself with a song”.
“My experience so far has shown me that as long as I don’t quit, and keep pushing, things will turn out how I want them to; action breeds consequence, not the opposite. There are so many people out there that want everything, right now – but great things take time…as long as I don’t quit.
