IndieLondon makes Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation – single of the week
This is what they say:
Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation – Take me Beyond
Following continued play of the track onBBC 6Music (as Lauren Laverne’s Headphone Moment and on the Recommends Show, followed by spins by Radcliffe & Maconie), Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation hnow digitally release their new single, Take Me Beyond, along with a video. Taken from their debut album, Horse Dance (out on November 6), this combines ear-pleasing pop melody with an ethereal sound that’s vocally reminiscent of acts like Lykke Li and company, with a touch of Jose Gonzalez thrown in. It’s nicely controlled, drawing on elements of psychedelia and head-rush synth pop, and shot through with some really good guitar riffs. Vocally, there’s a hazy quality to it that creates a subtle, laidback vibe that immediately endears itself. It’s little wonder Laverne chose it as a Headphone Moment, for it’s a track that allows you to get lost in.
