True courage is a rare quality in music these days. Could it be that dreamy crooner Jonathan Johansson claimed the bulk of it? However that may be, fact remains that Johansson without a doubt is one the trail blazer of the Swedish indie-scene. With his futuristic R&B-pop, his airy electronics and his at times painfully accurate reflections over modern life Johansson has managed to gain huge praise from the critics as well as a gathering a devoted following. Playful and earnest; pretentious yet rapturous – Johansson is one of a kind.
In 2020 Johansson released his seventh album ‘Scirocco’ – perhaps his most intricate and spiritual work to date and yes, the reviews were raving. Not resting, the Scania regions finest returned with brilliant new single ‘Klipporna Är Fortfarande Varma’ in 2021 followed by the lush ‘På Boulevarden’. The new amazing album ‘Om Vi Får Leva’ was recently released, and this summer Jonathan Johansson will be playing Way Out West!
Jonathan Johansson will be playing at Stay Out West, Saturday August 13th.
