Luminous Kid, the indie/ bedroom pop project of singer-songwriter and photographer Olof Grind, has released his second single, ‘A Restless Heart Would Rather Float in Space’. Written under the northern lights in Norway, it arrives with an accompanying underwater video directed and edited by Grind himself. Check it out below.
“I wrote the song while I was living in a cabin at the end of a gravel road facing a fjord. It was just me and my painter friend,” Grind explains in a statement. “We left our phones back home to be able to fully merge with nature without any distractions. We wanted to access something close to complete isolation. Since we were staying above the polar circle, the sun didn’t rise above the horizon once for our entire stay, but the nights were all bright green and red from aurora borealis.”
The single follows the previously released ‘The Gutter of Our Ecstasy’. Read our interview with Olof Grind, where he discusses his debut single as well as shooting the cover artwork for Phoebe Bridgers’ Punisher.
