Swedish phenomenon Club 8 is an unpredictable duo hailing from a small village in the south of Sweden. They had their first live performance in NYC, have toured everywhere from Tokyo to São Paolo and managed to build a strong and dedicated fan base all over the world.
Club 8s previous release People’s Record (produced by Jari Haapalainen) was praised by media all around the world. Under the Radar placed it as top 10 album of 2010, along with bands such as The Black Keys and The National. US online giant Popmatters gave the album 8 out of 10.
Above the City is their 8th album scheduled for release on May 21. The new album is produced by Johan Angergård and has a very electronic and twisted approach. During the recording they have worked with Russian field recordings, children’s choirs, samples from erotic movies and construction sites, used odd building material as drums and recorded in various sites such as basements and staircases to get the right reverb. Don’t miss this!
