Listen to Johnossi Turn on the Rock in ‘E.M.’ – Exclusive Premiere

Bjorn Terring

Sweden may be known most for its excellent pop music, but Johnossi’s ‘E.M’ proves that some people in that country can rock just as hard as anyone.

Featuring guitarist John Engelbert on vocals and Oskar “Ossi” Bonde on drums, the song 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.

I see everything, everything / Every memory I might have forgotten / And I still believe / There’s a dream alive,” Englbert sings in ‘E.M,’ which you can hear below in our exclusive premiere.

‘E.M’ comes from the duo’s upcoming album ‘Transitions,’ set to release on April 29. It marks Johnossi’s first U.S. release since their self-titled debut LP in 2007.

Recorded in 2012 at Rixmixningsverket, the studio owned by Abba’s Benny Andersson, with producer and mixer Lasse Marten, ‘E.M.’ features some help from Peter Bjorn and John’s Bjorn Yttling and Miike Snow’s Pontus Winnberg.
