Swedish Duo Bara Jonson and Free Unleash Genre-Defying Country, Rock, Pop Magic with ‘Knock Knock’

Bara Jonson and Free, the dynamic duo from Rinkaby, Sweden, known for their genre-defying sound, are excited to announce the release of their latest single, “Knock Knock” (Dance Plant Records) – available now.

Blending elements of Country, Rock, and Pop into their own unique sound they call Crockpop, band members Jonas Tancred and Malin Osth deliver a powerful anthem in “Knock Knock”. They affirm their dedication and love for live entertainment, marking their eagerly awaited and joyous return to the stage, celebrating new songs, a new hope and building a new future. The song echoes the shared sentiment of longing for the stage, the warmth of the crowd, and the camaraderie of fellow musicians as the music community rises from the shadows of pandemic lockdowns and social isolation.

“There was a time, not long ago when the world found itself deprived of all live music,” says Jonas Tancred. “Huddled together in their tiny huts and flats people were longing for the day they once again could come together in front of a music stage somewhere and feel alive.”

In their latest single, the Swedish duo alludes to their eagerness to return to Newfoundland, their home away from home, to reunite with the beloved “b’ys on the Rock.” The band previously released a song “Hello Newfoundland” which vividly describes their first encounter with the spirited Newfoundlanders.

“Knock, Knock” is not just a song; it’s a celebration of resilience, hope, and the unbreakable bond between musicians and their audience,” proclaims Malin Osth.

Bara Jonson and Free have been nominated for ‘Best Emerging Artist – International’ at the Indie Week Showcase Festival in Toronto and were selected as INES#Talent 2020-21. They have performed in various countries, including Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Germany, UK, France, and Canada. In 2021, they founded Lilla By Festivalen, a hybrid festival; somewhere in between folk-fest and a showcase, promoting unsigned local, national, and international artists. They also performed at the Mood Indigo virtual festival in Bombay and the Future Echoes showcase festival in Norrköping. In 2023, the band performed at the Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the world’s largest music festival, and captivated audiences at the Spike Festival in Bulgaria.
