JOHANAN PREMIERES NEW SINGLE “ALL AT ONCE” WITH ZANE LOWE ON BEATS1
“This is HEAT… What a great record.” – Zane Lowe
“…begins by grappling with the sticky way we hold onto pain, then builds to a towering chorus that glories in the smooth, vulnerable freedom of giving up and letting go.” – Stereogum
“…swelling strings and a skittering clap-clap backdrop lift the song by its haunches and let it soar free of restraints. “All alone and oh so vulnerable,” Johanan sings before the Where the Wild Things Are beasts come storming on through with their wild rumpus, a majestic cacophony that doesn’t outstay its welcome.” – SPIN
About Stockholm songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist Johanan revealed his third song “All At Once” with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 and Disco Naïveté shared it HERE, describing it thusly: “It really fits in this wicked Johanan-state of mind: it’s pretty pop with some weird corners here and there, just the way we like it.”
Zane Lowe has shown incredible support for all three singles to date, initially debuting “Go On (Let It Go)” last summer and “Holy Spirit” in fall, which Stereogum premiered HERE. Bringing to mind the ambitious orchestral majesty of acts like Jonsi and Sufjan Stevens, Johanan made his US live debut at CMJ last fall, toured Scandinavia with MS MR and is one of the most hotly-tipped acts at Norway’s By:Larm festival this weekend. “All At Once” is out worldwide on Neon Gold this week, ahead of Johanan’s forthcoming debut EP arriving later this year.
