Ingvar is a one man band, born in Athens, Greece. Drawing from swedish influences Ingvar creates topographies of atmosphere and ambience. It started in 2010, stealing time from the main occupation which is architecture. It started with 1 ep and 1 album and the second ep came in 2016 called Human Nature. Since then, Ingvar now resides in Stockholm, pursuing the creation of a second album.
The project 'Human Nature' tries to discover what human deeply means. Drawing inspiration from philosophy and sociology, every song takes on an attribute of human nature.
Human nature is to be conscious and to desire. We are rational and social creatures, but we become who we are in society. We construct a self by bridging doubt by faith— in ourselves (aesthetic self); in others (ethical self) or in God (religious self), but this is only artificial and an illusion. Being in harmony with the environment and with all species is the core of the human nature. The human is always in between choices. Always having doubts whether to choose right or not. In truth, whatever you choose, you will have done the right choice. Dealing with the outcome, whatever that is, is what makes you stronger as a human.
The human is clinging to hold on to situations for various reasons. Learning to let go when that is needed, is what makes us better as a human. Being humble and conscious to our existence, we become a medium of energy and contemplate together with the world around us. Connect with the world and we become wiser as a human. From stardust we have come and to stardust we will return. The very essence of the human nature is that of the universe. Be one with the universe and you shall become consistent as a human. The very substance of human nature is love. We all come from the same source, treat everyone as your own and we become kinder as a human.Believe or do not believe is a trivial matter. To some, god is a higher power, to others the soil that feeds them. Whether you believe or not, the only important thing is to find and be true to yourself and we become complete as a human.

These series have also showcased that Northwest is not only music, but a playground for different forms of art to blend (cinema, illustration, animation, dance, performance, technology, etc).
Northwest have toured all around Europe throughout 2017 and 2018 and have already in countries such as United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Netherlands, Russia, Latvia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Serbia, Montenegro and Albania.

The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
