About the Album

Blending elements of indie rock, folk, lo-fi, and DIY ethos – combined with attributes of a contemporary pop production – Deirdre’s (Joakim Johnsen) debut album “Heart Work” feels both nostalgic and contemporary, ranging from serene acoustic passages to vibrant, noisy walls of sound, paying homage to the melodic brilliance of acts such as Alex G, Dinosaur Jr, Teenage Fanclub and Elliott Smith. Johnsen describes the album as delving into a clear relational longing and the aftermath that accompanies it, such as loneliness, anxiety, and doubt; as songs originating from close relationships and personal impressions, written quickly and spontaneously – like momentary snapshots encapsulating fleeting emotions – and recorded/produced with a DIY approach heavily influenced by lo-fi aesthetics. A genuine, heartfelt and yet playfully experimental musical experience, “Heart Work” is scheduled for release November 2023 on Pink Cotton Candy Records.
