LJUNGBLUT - Presents Video For The First Single From Forthcoming Album

Norwegian dark alternative rockers Ljungblut, the band around Kim Ljung (Zeromancer, Seigmen) are releasing their 6th album Villa Carlotta 5959 on 2nd November via Karisma Records and today they are presenting the music video for the first single "Hasselblad".
Founding member Kim Ljung about the video: "The video of "Hasselblad" is shot and directed and Hans Christian Moen and Freddy Samson Fagerheim. Both friends of the band. Their first collaboration was "Kast blomstene på" from the previous Ljungblut album, Ikke alle netter er like sorte. Again they were given total artistic freedom. The concept being the moon, loneliness, camera and distance."
And on the single Kim Ljung extensively comments: "It was just one of those days. An early morning. I read somewhere about the twelve Hasselblad cameras left on the moon. Made some fresh coffee and locked myself into the studio without any particular ideas in my head. In a few hours it was all there. Lyrics and everything. A real special feeling when it happens. The guys loved the demo. A few weeks later we rehearsed "Hasselblad" as a band, keeping it close to the original idea. Of course, Ted added a real great drum-pattern. It was only just over a two-minute arrangement though. Right after I wrote it, I was visting Erik Ljunggren in his studio. Blown away by the collection of modular and vintage synthesizers, I asked him if he wanted to contribute for the end part. The Arp 2600 and the Oberheim Matrix creating most of the magic. All analogue. It was perfect. The drums, the bass, the guitar (with the Morley flanger pedal), the Omni and the Roland strings were all recorded live. I believe it was the third take. Sincerely happy with this one. Enjoy."
Ljungblut originally started out as a solo project from Seigmen/Zeromancer bass player and main songwriter Kim Ljung in 2005. He needed an outlet for songs which didn't fit in with his main bands. After three solo albums in English, the project evolved into a full quintet – and they released two independent albums in Norwegian. Villa Carlotta 5959 is the sixth Ljungblut album, and the last in a trilogy of albums with Norwegian lyrics. Link
