Markus Artved, a lifelong creative spirit, found himself on a transformative sojourn in the United States in 2022.

At the heart of Honey Hideout lies a rich, varied, and detailed musical palette. Inspired by the psychedelic pop legends of the 60s and 70s, Markus Artved crafts his sound with hand-played, analogue, and free-spirited elements. While ‘Goodbyes’ may evoke the sun-soaked vibes of the West Coast, its inception was rooted in the serene landscapes by the North Sea, at Markus Artved’s family cottage.

Markus Artved shares, “My family has an old, remote cottage by the North Sea – as far from Copenhagen on the map as you can possibly get. It’s a place to reset, like finding a ‘secret’ dune on the beach, where nature and the moment merge. This is where ‘Goodbyes’ was written as an escapist dream come true.” The single encapsulates the essence of this idyllic retreat, offering listeners a glimpse into the artist’s personal haven.
