Get into This say Gnoomes and Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation are 'ones to watch' at this years Liverpool Psych Fest
Defining themselves as ‘stargaze’ – a state in which you lie on the grass, tell funny stories to your friends, and watch the shooting stars – it is here that the Russian trio dislocate themselves from genre tags designed for the associative algorithms of digital space. Instead they enter the organic waves of an open mind that celebrates authentic connection and release. In the constellation of sound they would appear as a new configuration of (as yet unnamed) lonely angels; while the oracle would map them on Friday, September 23 as having Euphoria rising in the sky just above Camp and Furnace. Gnoomes‘ relationship with their isolated Russian location in Perm has enabled them to build a creative ethos that values the power of the imagination, and the promise of new beginnings. See them at Psych Fest for a lucid dream and that uncanny feeling you’re hearing myths that haven’t reached our solar system yet.
Josefin Ohrn and the Liberation
Josefin Ohrn and the Liberation’s electro beats look set to provide the pulse to this year’s festival. The imminent release of their forthcoming album Mirage will enjoy an already established fan-base of the Stockholm band. They have described this new experimental offering as capturing ‘the power of being completely lost and thriving on it’. Josefin Ohrn and the Liberation are the dreamy journeymen of the half-state; the band’s name references the Tibetan Book of the Dead and the limbo-like state that occurs before a soul reaches full liberation. It is fraught with approaching delusions that one must resist. In the case of Mirage the hypnogogic is something to be identified with. They request your presence for these ‘elegant nocturnal serenades’ at Psych Fest.
