|After having a whirlwind 2016, New Zealand’s reigning queen of goth pop, So Below (a.k.a Madeline North) kicks off this year with first ever UK tour. Beginning in Newcastle on February 26th, the tour will bring her to six cities across the UK, wrapping up on March 7th with a free headlining show in London.
The tour comes in support of So Below’s latest single, “Hard”, the contagiously catchy release that has received rave reviews from local and international music press alike. Clocking in already at over 160K+ streams with an add to Spotify’s prestigious New Music Friday playlist in both the US and Canada, “Hard” is shaping up to be her most successful single to date. Produced by fellow Kiwis Aaron Short (The Naked And Famous, Space Above) and Leroy Clampitt (Taste Nasa), the track marks her first release of new music since the debut self-titled EP in March 2016.

In The Press:“Hypnotic, dark and undeniably catchy” – V Magazine

“Big synths, pulsing bass and dark harmonies are topped with breathy Bat For Lashes vocals…without a doubt our favourite of the lot” – i-D

“Goth pop with an electronic edge, her stylish catalogue offers a place to move body and the soul” – Clash Magazine
About So Below:
Since making her musical debut with her single ‘Drift’ and attracting over 90,000 SoundCloud plays in just a few short months, So Below has become the mysterious goth pop chanteuse that everyone can’t stop talking about.
After leaving her native New Zealand in 2013, Auckland’s Madeline North began exploring her vocal talents, inspired by her new surroundings. Layering heavily processed vocals and harmonies over simple yet dark laptop beats, North began to formulate her style into what would so uniquely become So Below. Wanting to carry on this darker, moodier style of electro-pop, North reached out to fellow Kiwi musicians Aaron Short (The Naked And Famous), Sam McCarthy (Kids Of 88, Boyboy) and Leroy Clampitt (Taste Nasa) to help her produce her demos and ultimately complete what was to become So Below’s debut self-titled EP, released in March 2016. With an immediate debut at #5 on the NZ iTunes Alternative chart, the track ‘Sleep’ earning Top 25 placement in Spotify Canada’s Viral Chart and ‘Far’ peaking at #22 on the Hype Machine chart, this global admiration paved the way towards international collaboration and a Remixed version of the EP followed in September 2016.
Having a combined 600K+ plays on Spotify and 250K+ on SoundCloud, the support of notable sites such as HillyDilly, i-D, V Magaine and Neon Gold and receiving high rotation on New Zealand alternative radio, So Below is poised to be one of 2017’s artists to watch. Don’t say you weren’t warned…

Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation
In an era in which ‘psychedelia’ can often mean merely a grab-bag of influences from which wah-wah pedals and two-note riffs are dispensed as signifiers and signposts into a realm of easy accessibility as opposed to gateways to another dimension, it can be a rarity to come across a band who are genuinely fixated on creating alternate realities for the listener. Yet this is exactly how Stockholm’s Joseﬁn Öhrn + The Liberation view their incandescent art, and it’s this sensibility that’s led to the kaleidoscopic splendour of their two albums for Rocket Recordings, ‘Horse Dance’ (2015) and ‘Mirage’ (2016).
The band has seen a dramatic rise to prominence since the release of their debut EP ‘Diamond Waves in 2014’ leading to shows in their homeland with Goat and Les Big Byrd, a nomination for a Swedish Grammy as best newcomer, and rapturously received appearances at festivals like Roskilde.
These adventures set the stage for a spectacular movement into the unknown from their earlier work once signing to Rocket Recordings. Their two LPs razorsharp collection of songs that marry dreamlike radiance with hypnotic rhythmic drive, set alight by a prismatic experimental glow. It inhabits a realm in which a propulsive ‘60s-tinged pop song can be elevated skyward with krautrock-tinged repetition, dub echo and analogue curlicues alike, and one in which a Broadcast-style mantra can tap into a psychic lineage that stretches all the way from The United States Of America and Serge Gainsbourg to Portishead’s ‘Third’. Yet whilst ghosts of the like of Laika, Velvet Underground and The Creatures may lurk in the darker recesses of their songs, this is a band paying no homage to bygone glories.
The Liberation cite a myriad influences in both their philosophical stance and their aesthetic, from 12th century iconoclasts like Milarepa to 20th century sonic voyagers like Catherine Ribeiro, and from Kandinsky’s abstract expressions of synaesthesia to the avant-jazz of Moondog. Yet at all times their transcendental extrapolations are married to icy and enticing melodic flourishes, making for a revitalising clash between the chic and the transcendental, and a sound as biting as it is beatific.
The release of their 2nd album ‘Mirage’ was jubilantly received across UK Radio’s BBC6 Music, climaxing in a Lauren Laverne BBC6 Live session and a full European tour with fellow Swedes ‘Goat’ The band will be hitting more European stages for a headline tour in March 2017.
