Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation release ‘The State (Im In)’ and announce UK headline tour
‘The State (Im In)’ is Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation’s 2nd single from their new album ‘Mirage’.
The seductive splendour of the ten songs that made up 'Mirage' were jubilantly received across BBC6 Music, climaxing in a Lauren Laverne BBC6 Live session and a full tour support with fellow Swedes ‘Goat’.
The State (I’m In) has a sense of disorientation that marries a kaleidoscopic aesthetic with a panoramic sensibility, it’s overdriven organ motif radiance is offset by hypnotic rhythmic drive that steadily pulsates throughout.

The B side features a Remix by Al Lover of the bands classic ‘Rushing Through My Mind’, this time forging the ethereal sound of the original layered with strings and some really funky Kraut-disco basslined groove-out.
