Josefin Öhrn + the Liberation will release their third album in April via premiere label Rocket Recordings. Continuing to dive into the deeper waters of experimentation, ‘Sacred Dreams’ is both a musically hefty amalgamation of reverb drenched space-rock and retrocentric electronics, as well as an emotionally cathartic release for the band, marking a new direction and fresh approach.
The band have seen a dramatic rise to prominence since the release of their debut EP ‘Diamond Waves in 2014, which initially led to prominent shows in their homeland, a nomination for a Swedish Grammy as best newcomer and a rapturously received appearance at Roskilde.
Their previous album ‘Mirage’ was jubilantly received across UK Radio’s BBC6 Music, climaxing in a Lauren Laverne BBC6 Live session and playlist spots, a full European tour with fellow Swedes Goat, appearances at Glastonbury and Blue Dot Festivals and a sold-out UK headline tour. The album also won the band the prestigious ‘Composer of the Year’ award at the Manifest Music Awards in Sweden.
The transcendental guitars and driving grooves of their latest track ‘Feel The Sun’ sets up exciting expectations for their forthcoming album release and sets up 2019 as one of the best years for the band yet.
