The highly anticipated full-length album ‘Trigger‘ by synth legends The Mobile Homes hits stores today. It’s the swedes first studio album in eleven years.
To celebrate the album release, TMH has released a music video for the track ”Once Upon a Time I Was Handsome”.
‘Trigger‘ shows us a more grown-up sound. It still flirts with the ’80s, but now with more darkness. Andreas tells us about the album, “We’ve done it differently this time; Hasse’s been writing more directly from my musical ideas. To me, the songs are about being older, how your perspective of life has changed. The music is inspired by the bands we first fell for, after punk, in our early teens. There was something that triggered me while listening to them again, maybe it was the youth, memories… Well, I think our lyrics have changed, like it’s developed with a lot more freedom. And that’s the intention.”
The Mobile Homes formed in 1984 and have since then been in various formations, but are now founding brothers Andreas & Patrik Brun and Hans Erkendal, along with Sami Sirviö and Markus Mustonen (Kent).
The band has collaborated with Julian Beeston (Nitzer Ebb), and Denniz Pop, Karl Bartos (ex Kraftwerk), among others. They’ve also toured with bands such as Laibach and Nitzer Ebb. In 1998 they released the album ‘The Mobile Homes’, with Karl Bartos of Kraftwerk.
