With their sixth full-length album “Villa Carlotta 5959” having hit the streets on Karisma Records on the 2nd November, Norwegian Alternative Rockers LJUNGBLUT have today revealed an atmospheric new video for the track “Himmelen som vet”. The video, directed and shot by Edvard Brendsrød, can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/otl9HvJSkns
To celebrate the release of “Villa Carlotta 5959” LJUNGBLUT are set to play their only live dates of 2018. The shows will take place in Norway as follows:
09 Nov: Papirhuset, Tønsberg
10 Nov: Papirhuset, Tønsberg
12 Nov: Kulturkirken Jacob, Oslo
Formed in 2005 by Kim Ljung as a vehicle for material he didn’t think would be suitable for either SEIGMEN or ZEROMANCER , bands for whom he is both the bassist and main songwriter, LJUNGBLUT eventually expanded from a solo project, which saw the release of three albums, into a fully fledged band. Dan Heide (ZEROMANCER, RED7) on guitars, Ted Skogmann (APOPTYGMA BERZERK) on drums , Joakim Brendsrød on keys and Sindre Pedersen on bass, joined Ljung, on keys and vocals, and, as a quintet, the band released two independent albums with Norwegian lyrics.
Encompassing a wide range of tempos and dynamics, “Villa Carlotta 5959” is an album that presents the listeners with a cohesive sound and a melancholy mood, swathing Ljung’s characteristic vocals in vintage synths and instruments . Recorded live in the studio and mixed by Alex Møklebust (SEIGMEN / ZEROMANCER) and Terje Johannesen, guest artists on “Villa Carlotta 5959” include Ljunggren (A-HA, ZEROMANCER), Ginge Anvik (SUBGUD, soundtrack composer) and Terje Johannesen.
With artwork by Hanne-Christine Flåten , “Villa Carlotta 5959” is available in CD, Digital and Vinyl formats, as well as a Limited Edition Turquoise LP, and is available from all the usual retailers and streaming services, as well as direct from Karisma Records at
