The press release reads:



Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation create a sonic kaleidoscope of dreamy altered state psychedelia with an hypnotic motorik drive.

The bands ever-expanding sound has a pop aesthetic bubbling under its surface and befitting their Nordic roots, but one that’s elevated skyward with a prismatic experimentation of kraurock-tinged repetition, dub echo and analogue curlicues. It’s a sound as biting as it is beatific, recalling in parts the work of Broadcast, Electrelane, Laika, Cat’s Eyes, The Creatures, Portishead and United States of America.

Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation is a Swedish band, fronted by Josefin Öhrn alongside Fredrik Joelson who heads up a collection of musicians called The Liberation. In the last twelve months, they have experienced a dramatic rise to prominence with their debut EP Diamond Waves leading to shows in their homeland with Goat and Les Big Byrd, a nomination for Best Newcomer at the Swedish Grammy and rapturously received appearances at festivals like Roskilde.

On 6th November, Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation release their debut album Horse Dance. The album is preceded by the single Take Me Beyond, which is released digitally on 30th October. Both are released via Rocket Recordings.
