TUNE Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation - Feel The Sun
Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation releases new single ‘Feel The Sun’ via Rocket Recordings on 26th April, taken from their forthcoming album ‘Sacred Dreams’ (also 26th April).
London-based psychedelic stalwarts, Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation continue to delve into the deeper waters of experimentation, with their new LP ‘Sacred Dreams. It is both a musical amalgamation of reverb drenched space-rock and retro centric electronics, as well as an emotionally cathartic release for the band, marking a new direction and fresh approach.
Josefin and her writing partner Fredrik have relocation from Stockholm to London and have created a new Liberation around them. Their new band consists of a powerful and intuitive assemblage of musicians: Maki (Go Team), Patrick C Smith (Eskimo Chain), Matt Loft (Lola Colt) and Ben Ellis, who has worked with Iggy Pop, Anna Calvi and Swervedriver.
‘Sacred Dreams’ invites you into the band’s own dimensional soundscape, a world with transcendental guitars, driving grooves and otherworldly, enchanting vocals, altogether seeped in layers of blissfully produced synths. ‘Feel The Sun’ encapsulates this new direction perfectly.
Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation will tour the UK playing: April: The Bullingdon Oxford (23rd), The Brudenell Leeds (24th), The Deaf Institute Manchester (25th), Islington Assembly Hall London (26th), Thekla Bristol (27th), Hare & Hounds Birmingham (30th) May: Jacaranda Liverpool (1st), Stereo Glasgow (2nd), The Cluny Newcastle (3rd), Handmade Festival Leicester (5th).
