A short Band history: The Mobile Homes were formed in Sätra/Sweden in 1984. Early in their career Mobile Homes supported both Laibach and Nitzer Ebb on their Scandinavian tours. The band was signed to many labels (including SubSpace Communication and Megahype Recs.). After 3 early albums (one of them producted by Nitzer Ebb’s Julian Beeston), the band sort of dismantled, but re- united in 1998 for their 4th and highly successful self-titled album, produced by none less than ex Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos! One of the track off that album was used for years by Scandinavian SAS airline in their commercials.
1998 saw their ‘The World will listen’ Album, recorded at the legendary Polar Studios, formerly owned by ABBA. In 2003 Mobile Homes signed under BMG Sweden and released an EP pro- duced by Sami Sirviö from Swedish band Kent and Stefan Boman. In 2009 they released their so far last album “Today is your lucky Day”, again produced by Sami Sirviö.
Between 2009 and today, there was a number of singles, some of which were major hits in Scandinavia, but only last year the band came back together again, to record this their 6th regular Studio album!
The legendary Swedish act The Mobile Homes have been quiet for eleven years, except for some singles, so it’s about time there’s a new release. The album “Trigger” shows us a more grown up sound. It still flirts with the 80’s, 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 in- tention.”
Again, like the previous album from 2009 [that he produced], ‘Trigger’ features the presence of Sami Sirviö of KENT-fame (Swedish alternative pop act with eleven #1 albums, five #1 singles, 23 Swedish Grammy Awards, and over 3 million record sales!), but this time listed as full band-member on Synths and Vocals!
The album was preceeded by 3 digital singles, all included in this album.
