Carl just kicked off his album run with the fast-paced track “The Enemy”. Centered around drums and Carl’s own vocals, the track has an epic, dark and warm feel. Perfectly accompanied by majestic strings, Carl’s first single is larger than life with a distinct, warm UK vibe.

For the first time in his career, Carl has added his own lead vocals to the mix, making him completely independent in his music process.

Ready to release his debut album this summer, the project inspired by the lighthearted and positive naïveté of swedish indie pop. Adding several new, rough elements to his recording process including guitars, live drums and his own vocals, gives this project a more organic and vivid feel compared to his earlier work. Carl’s new work expands his signature atmosphere and combines it with the sound of Swedish indie acts such as Peter, Bjorn and John, Miike Snow and Radio Dept., and inspiration from soulful acts such as Jungle, Moby and Massive Attack.
