JOSEFIN ÖHRN & THE LIBERATION
“Beautifully controlled, understated, subtle but infectious.” The Guardian
“The Josefin Öhrn record is ridiculously good.” Lauren Laverne (BBC 6 Music)
“Mesmerising with a flair for motorik groove and creepy pop grandeur” Uncut
“An enthralling band” Mojo
In an era in which ‘psychedelia’ can often mean merely a grab-bag of influences from which wah-wah pedals and two-note riffs are dispensed as signifiers and signposts into a realm of easy accessibility as opposed to gateways to another dimension, it can be a rarity to come across a band who are genuinely fixated on creating alternate realities for the listener. Yet this is exactly how Stockholm’s Joseﬁn Öhrn + The Liberation view their incandescent art, and it’s this sensibility that’s led to the kaleidoscopic splendour of their two albums for Rocket Recordings, ‘Horse Dance’ (2015) and ‘Mirage’ (2016).
