Swedish paper DN and Fashion site IDOL sing the praises of Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation

Following a 4/5 review yesterday, leading Swedish newspaper DN has today published an interview with Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation, and loosely translated it reads:

"There are glorious times of psychedelic rock in Sweden right now. One of the new names is Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation . On 6 November they will release their debut album " Horse Dance " .

The psychedelic music scene , with its hints of kraut- and space rock , is on the rise in Sweden . The festival Psych Junta attracts audiences from all over Sweden and bands like Les Big Byrd and Goat has won both the critics and the audience's heart. Now close Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation up and carry the psychedelic rock banner with them. With its acclaimed EP " Diamond Waves " and gigs in Sweden and Denmark are the one of the genre's most promising names.

On Friday, the first full length album " Horse Dance " and the sound is slightly different from the previous ep . Most people have probably heard that Music Sweden have rarely felt so good as now. For example, Max Martin and Shellback write hit after hit hitting both domestically and in the United States..."

Plus fashion mag Idol says this about them:


Josefin Ohrn + The Liberation is band translating Nordic sensibility into most subtle sounds.

The Swedish musicians started with the Diamond Waves EP that appeared as a polished pop cacophony . Listening to their new single ‘Take Me Beyond’ is a luminous experience, where a music wanderlust is being created. Releasing their long-awaited debut album tomorrow, ‘Horse Dance’ is a fusion of electronic and ambient, where band’s experimental approach shows in elaborate intros and instrumental parts.

‘Horse Dance’ is out on November, 6th.
