JOSIN’s THE DARKNESS Explores The Inner Struggle Of The Human Condition

"We fall to keep cold wicked sins, just spinning out our perfect lives“ is one of the main thoughts I have towards that darkness. It holds for me, for you, for a society - the why are we always striving for improvement, neglecting the fact that we are already living such privileged lives. I think I want to refocus on the essence of happiness through "The Darkness“.

Josin’s first singling of 2021 The Darkness sees the artist return with her unique ability to draw out juxtaposing emotions from her audience. The single, foreshadowing her 2021 EP, see’s Josin’s voice soar amongst a deeply textured ambient atmosphere. With The Darkness continuing to prove her ability to capture a specific emotion and with more music on the horizon 2021 is looking to be an exciting year for Josin.

What does music mean to you?

It´s a permanent, the worst and the best feature of my life. Having grown up in a musical household it has been something very normal to me. Until it became something I wanted to deny and eventually had to accept that without it, I would never really be myself. So it´s complicated 🙂 But it´s the thing that makes me feel most alive.

Why have you chosen the lifestyle you have?

I followed my instincts and had to ask myself what will fulfill me most and what would I regret most if I hadn’t tried at least. Looking back, I should have made that decision earlier. But maybe all the other different paths and the one-ways are a part of this too and make sense in a way.

What does the darkness say about you?

I think it´s a confession that I can not run away from it. But one that is necessary in order to change something. Like specifying what haunts you or what causes your inner struggles. “We fall to keep cold wicked sins, just spinning out our perfect lives“ is one of the main thoughts I have towards that darkness. It holds for me, for you, for a society – the why are we always striving for improvement, neglecting the fact that we are already living such privileged lives. I think I want to refocus on the essence of happiness through “The Darkness“.

How would you describe your connection to the darkness?

I feel a powerful energy from it. The darkness, the sadness and it´s consequential hope are such inspirational motives for my music and my own emotional landscape.

What’s been the pinnacle of your career so far?

Collaborating with one of my favorite artists, Ólafur Arnalds. Supporting wonderful Ry X at the Royal Albert Hall. But most of all meeting people in real life that connect to my music and that are not afraid of sharing these emotions back with me.
