Words by Ed King / Pics by Rob Hadley
On Tuesday 7th March, Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation came to the Hare & Hounds (Kings Heath) – as presented by This Is Tmrw.
On the road med album nummer två, Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation were leaving phosphorescent trails though Birmingham as they finished a UK tour promoting their latest album, Mirage. Always good to catch the tail end of a rainbow.
And whilst our ‘man in Havana’ was struck down by a particularly virulent strain of man flu, Rob Hadley was there to capture the kaleidoscope show for THE GALLERY. But if a picture paints a thousand words… fate may have dodged an editorial bullet that night.
For as the self described ‘alchemical sky gazing’ ensemble proudly declare with their sophomore LP, Mirage ‘sees the band sculpting sprawling, hypnotic jams into elegant nocturnal serenades with such serendipity that their actual creation remains a little hazy even to themselves.’ Well that’s good to know. Where’s my thesaurus..?
Big thanks to This Is Tmrw for bringing more of the weirdly wonderful to Birmingham. Check out a cherry picked basket of Rob Hadley’s pics in THE GALLERY below, or click on the relevant links to see the Full Fickr of Pics.
