Johnossi streams “Into The Wild”

Johnossi streams "Into The Wild" the single off their upcoming album Transitions which is Due Out on April 29th

Swedish duo Johnossi (that’s John Engelbert and Oskar “Ossi” Bonde) have a new album calledTransitions, due out April 29. (Fun fact: it was produced by Bjorn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John.) For those who like their guitar/drum rock served up with a side of sweetness, check out this stripped down video of album track “Seventeen.” The clip features singer/songwriter Anna Ternheim.

I am a fan of reverb, but even more than reverb I am a HUGE fan of Peter Gabriel. I tell you this because the first time I heard Johnossis’ “Into the Wild” right around the :18 second mark of the track when vocalist John Engelbert’s vocals come in I checked to make sure it wasn’t Gabriel. Trust me when I say this dude’s voice is the real deal.

Johnossi, a duo comprised of Oskar “Ossi” Bonde (on drums) and Engelbert (vocals & guitar), recorded their fourth studio album Transitions in Rixmixningsverket in Stockholm with some help from Martin Hederos of The Soundtrack of Our Lives. The fellas enlisted Bjorn Yttling, of Peter Bjorn & John, and Mike Snow’s Pontus Winnberg to product the record and at the end of the day.
