Their new album 'Piramida' is infused with the kind of melancholy
which could become a bit wearing were it not for the deft management
of their richly varied melodic material. There are far more than
fifty shades of grey here but still the music somehow manages to
sustain our attention and interest. The long winter nights of their
Northern home have served them well. There's not a little magic here.
Singer Casper Clausen has a distinctive and beguiling voice. Moody with
a capital M, it casts a long shadow over all ten of these fine songs.
The abandoned mining town of the project's title has clearly been a
rich source of inspiration for this talented ensemble. The tinkling
keyboards, skittering percussion and shimmering harmonies speak of life
in a cold and inhospitable place; a landscape of ghosts and broken dreams.
Take a song like 'The Living Layer' : moving at a snail's pace we sense the
evocation of vast frozen snowy wastes and an inhospitable and uncertain horizon.
So to with 'Sedna', a strangely affecting composition in which Mr Clausen
sings the faltering melody like a man hanging onto hope by the barest thread.
In contrast 'Dreams Today' has a sparking and enchanting fairy tale presence
which shines out like a beacon in the prevailing gloom. The elves are dancing!
Final track 'Monument' is the stuff of troubled dreams. A truly haunting coda.
Less is certainly more in Efterklang's world. A richly rewarding experience.
Highlights for me are "Between The Walls" and "Sedna".

Irretraceable in their Danish modern folkloristic experiments, Efterklang can't really compete with the Irrepressibles, but follow their own path....interesting and pure.Published on 31 Dec. 2012 by braam, ap
Bought this for a friend and when he opened it from the shrink wrap: no disc! Poor show. What a disappointment.Published on 28 Dec. 2012 by Gzilla
I saw this band live in concert recently and they were incredible. Their work is unusual and they remain true to their art form. The CD is a great reminder of the concert.Published on 17 Dec. 2012 by Ms. V. Maria
Not like their other albums but still good. More pop than electronic. Hope they go back to their original music soon.Published on 29 Nov. 2012 by Simon Overton
