Editorial Reviews

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 8 have had songs in Smallville and Suburban girl. Above the City is their 8th album. Their previous album People s Record (2010) was ranked Top 10 album of 2010 by Under The Radar. The new album is produced by Johan Angergård and sounds like a blend of 80s Madonna and Florence and the Machine. On Above the City Club 8 has, among other things, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eff it babe, they've got nothing left to prove June 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Here is the best unknown band the U.S. has yet to discover. Their sound has inspired hipster duos and an entire generation of stripped down alternative bands that create from a tiny room and 4track. They make it sound easy of course, and THAT is where the art lies.

Club 8's new recording leaves the festive, communal, every-man-for-himself chaos of their previous album The People's Record. Johan Angergard is once again back at the controls, and the intimate sound of Club 8: electronica, Karolina Komstedt's reverb-laden, wispy vocals singing songs about time, aging, belonging, and identity return. However, this 8th installment in Club's 8's discography has matured along with the listener. The innocence and youth of Spring Came, Rain Fell and Summer Songs are dried memories of seasons past. The imminent progress of time is one record closer to our hero/heroine duo.

Kill Kill Kill opens like a funeral dirge, reminiscent of Juan del Enzina's Villancicos in the Spanish Renaissance. "I always cared for those who kill, now throw another life into this fire." A far cry from "stupid girl, those charming men won't look at me, I'm not blonde enough but I still believe in love." But just as you think it's all mope and grope, the second song turns over the engine and picks up beat with a vintage Giorgio Moroder synth hook as Karolina sings "You're stealing my heart away, But not in a "lover" way. I feel as if my blood has gone, Oh baby, come on!" Ah, once again that topic that Club 8 has turned almost into their obsession in and of itself: time and age, literally stealing one's heart away day by day.
