Swedish Duo JOHNOSSI Release 'Transitions' In the US!
Johnossi's new album Transitions is Out Now in the US via Universal Sweden/Caroline! Let's see what the critics had to say.
"An incredible record...." - Nylon Guys
"...for the DFA Crowd...Olenius' version narrows the original song's scope and hollows out its production, favoring cowbell clunks and a soft-edged, electronic groove over galloping grand gestures." - Spin on Shout Out Loud's Remix of "Gone Forever"
"This is a song for staring wistfully into the distance on top of a mountain while growing a beard and calmly shitting an entire Slim Jim." - Noisey on "Into the Wild"
"....there is a lot to like about this well-made album that could easily serve as their breakout beyond Swedish borders." - All Music
"The duo of John Engelbert (vocals, guitar) and Oskar "Ossi" Bonde (drums) mine fashionable post-punk influences (Joy Division, Echo & The Bunnymen), but channel them through the same sort of anthemic emotional and sonic grandiosity as do The Killers and Coldplay. In fact, Engelbert's haunted, throaty wailing distinctly reminds of Chris Martin-minus the latter's tendency towards the over-maudlin." - Blackbook
"boasts a vintage '90s rock sound with its hard and steady rhythm section backing some mighty tasty guitar riffs. There's also a subtle layer of synths riding throughout the song, as well as some fist-raising background vocals that add an anthemic quality." - Diffuser
"...guitar/drum rock served up with a side of sweetness..." - Under the Radar
