Icelandic Artist Gunnar The Fifth Tells You To ‘Hide From The World’

In what couldn’t be a more timely release, Oslo-based Icelandic alt-pop act and world-renowned tattoo artist Gunnar The Fifth has released the video for ‘Hide From The World’, from the band’s debut EP, which is set for release this Spring.

The track follows on from previous releases ‘Fell Off A Ledge’, and ‘Beauty In The Downfall’, and is a stirring and emotive piece of lo-fi pop that will compel you to listen over and over again, delivered with the rare tenderness and warmth that has quickly become Gunnar The Fifth’s trademark.

Speaking about the song, Gunnar said,

“Originally written about wanting to hide from the world due to a break up and other personal issues. Now ever more relevant due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak.”
