2015 has certainly been a productive year for Club 8’s producer and songwriter, Johan Angergård (The Legends, Pallers, Acid House Kings, Eternal Death). Not only is Pleasure his third album this year (his 9th with Club 8 and 21st album in total), this year also marks the 20th Anniversary of Club 8.
To prepare for the album, Angergård wrote almost 30 songs. Eight of which he and singer Karolina Komstedt chose to record. Komstedt says “Pleasure is an album about love, sex and jealousy. Musically, it is possibly our most focused release to date.” Angergård adds that the album’s lead single “‘Love Dies’ is about wanting love and life to be endlessly big and breathtakingly romantic. Once in a while it IS like that. But everything dies and what once felt exciting turns grey and dull. Still, we cling to romantic dreams and hang on to nostalgic memories of love – wishing and hoping it will all come back.”
