They have not released any new albums since that year’s Clinging To A Scheme, their third full-length album released under acclaimed Swedish indie/twee pop record label Labrador Records.
But Carlberg says that fans can expect to hear some new songs tomorrow that the band have been working on.
“It would be boring for us and the audience if we played the same old songs,” he quips, adding that the new tunes will be more “uptempo”.
And while the Zouk show saw Carlberg and frontman Johan Duncanson play with their then keyboardist Daniel Tjader, who has since left the band, this time round the duo will be backed by sessionists Maja Karlsson on guitars and Mattias Friberg on keyboards.
Carlberg, who is divorced, admits that their upcoming album is a little overdue but assures fans that main songwriter Duncanson has come up with a lot of fresh material – it is just a matter of selecting the best tunes to fit a new album.
He explains: “We usually do songs quickly but the album needs to be the perfect combination of songs, so that’s why it takes so long to compile them.”
Like many of their previous songs, which contain snippets of dialogue from films such as 1983 hip-hop documentary Style Wars and 1993 alternative rock documentary 1991: The Year Punk Broke, the new tunes will also contain samples.
“Johan loves films,” explains Carlberg. “And I guess we both always had a cinematic view of music. We look at music in pictures.”
