LJUNGBLUT - Second Single From Upcoming Album Out Now

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. Now Ljungblut have released a second single from the album. The track "235" can be streamed or downloaded at this location, or in the player below.
Commenting on the track, and its rather unusual name of "235", Ljungblut founder Kim Ljung had this to say: Why 235? A Manchester casino goes by this name. Lorry (Zeromancer band member and Ljungblut sound engineer) and I were there some years ago. Lorry was doing well with the chips up until the point where I convinced him to head for the Roulette wheel. All on red. Broke in no time. Inspiration. Sindre (bass) wrote this one. He sent me a demo and asked me if it had the the right feel to make it a Ljungblut track. Of course it had. I loved it instantly! Its stomping beat and the blend of both laid back and feisty guitars, triggered off a wave of words and ideas for vocals. His way of thinking about music is different to mine. Which is great and refreshing. Same goes for Dan (guitars) who has also written several songs on the upcoming album Villa Carlotta 5959. The guys have really cracked the code on how to compose songs in real Blut-fashion. I believe "235" was the very last song on the album that we rehearsed together, and made ready for live-recording, with  some twists regarding notes, and re-arranging. Plus lifting the track up one key, meant that I had to push it vocally a bit more. It definitely suited the lyrics and the energy of "235". For the mix, Alex (Seigmen/Zeromancer bandmember and Ljungblut co-producer/mixer) and I decided to keep the room alive. We pushed up all faders for mono and stereo-room to get the live-feel even more present in the track. The lyrics are quite easy. It has obsessive-compulsive disorder written all over it. I think everyone in the band can relate to these words to a certain extent!" Link
