Yohuna | Berlin, Junction Bar

Zarte und leise Töne gingen beim Konzert von Yohuna am vergangenen Donnerstag unter die Haut. Angenehm kühl war es in der Kellerbar - für die nötige Wärme sorgten die Synthiepopklänge der jungen Amerikanerin, die seit einigen Monaten in Berlin lebt. Das kleine halbstündige Set, gespickt mit Lo-Fi Attitüden, sanften Oboentönen und 80er Casioeinflüssen ließ dich perfekt entschleunigen. Ganz gewiss wird ein Auge drauf geworfen, welche Tracks Yohuna, alias Johanne Swanson, in Zukunft dem verträumten Synthiefan in den Gehörgang legt.

j announced— playing torstrassen fest next month! they wrote a super thoughtful bio, here’s the translation:

Also in 2014 the Casiotone, a handy electronic keyboard from the 1980s, seems to be the painfully alone’s first choice of instrument. The minimal arrangements that Yohuna whips up with that little plastic box are graceful, they float timelessly over everyday’s frustrations and make the bed for Yohana’s feathery voice, waking up and sprawling over soft synthesized pillows. Actually Yohuna’s sound is rooted in the 90ies, a decade so aesthetically basic that when lived as a teenager it often gets falsely connected to the term timeless. Yohana’s synth-pop etudes would have been the perfect soundtrack for another frustrating day in the so-called life of Angela Chase, for adolescent dramas in oversized Calvin Klein T-shirts. Behind the phonetic variation of her name is Johanne Swanson, a new-Berliner, transplanted from Boston, Massachusetts, born and raised in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Johanne is an active member of the FMLY family, a socially thinking DIY-collective, a circle also revolving around Julie Byrne, another TSF’14 protagonist. Yohuna’s song Badges was featured on the much-talked about Boring Ecstasy compilation released via bedroom-pop label Orchid Tapes from New York and her very recent track Creep Date was illustrated with adequate creepiness starring a seductive Johanne out for a late-night-snack.
