Hailed as the “Best Indie of 2016” by Spotify Sweeden, the Stockholm-based producer Adam Öhman, also known as Mountain Bird, is proving himself once again in the year of the Rooster, 2017.
Adam is a master of melancholy synths and dreamy indie soundscapes laden with heart-wrenching, emotion-heightening electronica soundscapes. Adam’s most recent releases on Swedish tastemaker label HMWL, “Hearts To Gold” and “Circus,” both went Spotify Viral and were added to Spotify’s Top 100 Indie tracks of 2016. With the Spring of the new year finally upon us, Mountain Bird returns.
“Cliché” is a true lovechild of the indie and electronica genres. The exceptional track features American vocalist Emily Autrey, whose voice cascades over the soundscape with effervescent grace. Mountain Bird speaks to his listeners through the lyrics of “Cliché,” wishing to be viewed as independent yet still succumbing to his natural desire to love and be loved, and in turn becoming a “love cliché.”
