I think Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation announced their break-up earlier this year which is a huge shame (well Josefin said she wasn’t going to perform live anymore as The Liberation). Especially as I had a series of missed dates with the band..
In better times, their debut LP Horse Dance was released in late 2015 (I still think it’s dangerous to release a record after September because all critics are focused on their end of year lists well before that and late year records get missed off accordingly). Highlights on the record are all wow moments, never more on the insanely brilliant Green Blue Fields.
From a dancey, almost tribal opening it slowly unravels around layers of driving guitars, pulsating synths and Josefin’s breathy before taking you on an explosive, dark and dreamy conclusion. Huge.
