Blackroom return with What Is That You Want
Remember Blackroom? Back in the early days of this blog I fell in love with Norwegian act Lorraine, who eventually morphed into Blackroom - or was it Black Room then? - and released a great debut album called Pop Noir. I even interviewed them at the time. That album title was fitting, with strongly melodic tunes from both the light and dark sides of pop. It has mysteriously disappeared from iTunes US, but is worth seeking out.
Since that time, they've been recording and What Is That You Want is the first result. Not too much has changed, fortunately, especially their calling card, lead singer Ole's rich voice.
