To coincide with their up & coming tour, Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation will be releasing a reworked version of their sultry album track, “Sister Green Eyes”. This digital only refix will be the band’s third single from their much lauded 2016 album Mirage. It is a track that sounds like Phillip Glass, Ravi Shankar and the Band of Gypsies rhythm section pounding and splashing against a canvas in an arty Rauschenberg Vs Warhol psychedelic pop off. Cyclical syncopated key harp and fiddle form a richly hypnotic and tribal procession central to the tracks groove which is enamelled with Josefin’s almost broken breathless vocals.
As the band explains “Sister Green Eyes” was inspired by the Japanese word “Shinrinyoku” which is sometimes translated and often described as “Forest Bathing”, where submersing oneself so deeply into the atmosphere of the forest or in the band’s case, the Swedish ‘Ocean and Mountains’, that the experience is rejuvenating and restorative so showing you a way that can often seem lost or out of reach and Josefin’s vocals encapsulate that. Who couldn’t do with a bit of that as February draws to a frosty close.
“Sister Green Eyes” will be released on Rocket Recordings on 24th February (digital only) and Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation procession will be performing in a town near you soon.
