Whew! It’s been an intense, neck and neck race between London’s Mt. Wolf and the Netherlands’ Blaudzun in our Artist of the Week poll. But the voters have spoken, and the Dutch indie rocker came out on top! Congratulations to Blaudzun, MTV Iggy’s Artist of the Week!
Blaudzun may have an icy stare and a mouthful of a name for Americans, but the continent is still warming up to his new album Heavy Flowers, which is slated for US release in January. In the meantime, the singer/songwriter is playing US dates, getting US buzz, and garnering all kinds of comparisons to the anthemic, North American folk rock pantheon.
Check out his track “Elephants,” and his revealing interview.
