Behind the moniker, we find the Swedish Uppsala-based musician Joel Gabrielsson. Joel has a very international backgound. He grew up in Singapore, studied at the School of Movement and Performance in Finland and in 2009 he relocated to Ukraine for a couple of years. It was during this time that his interest in composing music started taking a more important role.
He was particularly interested in electro-acoustic and ambient music, and began to experiment with sounds, textures and electronics in his home studio. The following years were spent fronting the drone-pop band Toys in the Well and performing venues around Europe.
After moving back to Sweden, into a small cottage in the countryside, Joel started to develop a new, solo recording project. The result is Flyinglow, an electronic sound perhaps best described as Scandinavian, drawing inspiration from fellow Swedish artists like The Knife, I Break Horses and Little Dragon.
