After a messy 2017 I needed a re-set and am borrowing a friend's cabin in the Arctic at 78 degrees North (in Longyearbyen, Svalbard), to stay by myself for a month to write music and hang out for a while. I have a lot of friends in the nearby town, so I'm not in complete solitude for the whole time for those of you who might worry (Mum).
In case anyone is wondering, I'm from Norway, but currently live in London. And have been coming up here for the summer to work for the last 6 years.
It's currently 24hr darkness, and I have ended up being quite comfortable with that. We do have the occasional northern lights and moonlight to spice things up. I will admit that I am lowkey scared of polar bears. But I have a rifle and flare gun for protection (again, don't worry Mum).
What a weird and magical place.
