Royksopp too senior to play live?

Royksopp are unsure if they will be able to perform their 'introspective' new album 'Senior' live.

Royksopp don't know how to play their new album live.

The Norwegian dance pop duo are currently preparing for the release of their new LP 'Senior' and admit they are unsure how well the record's "introspective, dark" sound would translate in a live environment.

Svein Berge said: "We don't know how to approach touring because it's a hard thing to bring to the stage.

"I think the audience would have to be sat down in a dark room, preferably with an opium pipe in their hand for it to work, so we'd have to be clever.

"It's not one we could expect to bring to somewhere like Glastonbury and have people going off their heads."

Although the duo are happy with their new album, they don't want to stay introspective for the rest of their career - which could potentially run for several more decades.

Svein added to BBC 6 Music: "We don't want to become so profound that we become artistes or pretentious -we're not 98 and dying and sitting in an old people's home.

"I would consider making a techno thing when I'm 90."

'Senior' is released on September 13.
