Northern Spies is 26-year-old Astrid Wiezell Howell singing and playing guitar, piano or whatever she feels like, based in Stockholm, Sweden. Northern Spies came about after the summer of 2012 being glorious and wonderful and wanting to write about the people and things around me and how happy they make me. Using a new name also provided a fresh start after years of solo, self-titled songwriting. Northern Spies fulfills its purpose if it can hit the mark somewhere between dreamy and honest and make the listener go "Oh! I know that feeling!".
