“I almost shat my pants at a Christian camp the summer I turned 9”
With these words, Josef kicks off his second album, Summer. In a way, these few, but direct words hold the essence of the album’s message; A critique of dogmatic Christian communities, and a hope that people who struggle in such environments find the strength to break free.
Hailing from a lineage of preachers, Josef knows – for better and worse – the Faroese Christian environment very well. In Summer, Josef wishes to shed light on the taboos of Christian environments through his music and voice.
