Josephine impresses with debut record

Josephine - Music Is Easy
Reader Rating0 Votes

Josephine treats us to a weightless journey through a gentle dreamscape. Don’t expect to struggle through obnoxious guitar and rash vocals here, after all, music is easy.

Like all great albums born with psychedelic undertones, inspiration is naturally drawn from music moguls The Beatles. Avoiding cliches, Josephine is subtle in her execution, seamlessly blending some of the best Beatles and Beach Boys-like vibes with more modern influences reminiscent of Tame Impala’s early work.

Tracks such as ‘He Still Calls Me Baby’ and ‘Music is Easy’ make you question whether you heard them on The Yellow Submarine, or perhaps Josephine soundtracked one of those old California surf films like ‘Endless Summer’. Who knows. Much like both the scouse and the sun-kissed four-pieces of the 60s, Josephine manages to create an atmosphere that feels cosy and warm whilst taking you on a captivating voyage.

Utilising a range of instruments to get the perfect balance of upbeat and more steady tracks, Josephine has crafted an album that feels like the work of seasoned professionals. Now performing live with an electric 8-piece ensemble, named The Josephine Network, you can’t help but dream of the spectacle they will become given more time to flourish.
