Wispy dreams of psychedelic transcendence echo through every track of Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation’s sonically seductive new album ‘Mirage’. A patiently crafted exhibition of musical otherworldliness that is not so much listened to as experienced meditatively. Possessing a haughty Scandinavian power the Swedish innovators cast hypnotic and wilfully capricious  rhythms that defy definition. Plug your mind boxes into the machine like pulse of ‘In Madrid’ and melt as the beautiful lilting vocals carry the soul along on a subtly disconcerting locomotive of sound that merges seamlessly into ‘Rainbow Lollipop’. Eclectic, electric and seductively unquantifiable. Your dreams made flesh with sound. ‘Rushing Through My Mind’ is a joyous anthem of sultry electronica that teases and ties towards a gentle euphoria. Think Stereolab, Gainsbourg, Hardy, mystery and neon dreams.
