I really dig Efterklang. They’re a seven piece hailing from Denmark with a lush sound that shimmers with layers of vocals, horns, strings, drums, pianos and electronic treatments all bundled together into a colourfully orchestrated sound. It’s bright, enjoyable and unmistakably Scandinavian.
Their newly released video for Mirador just got featured on YouTube. While it’s garnered a stream of comments to the effect of “what the hell?”, it’s a nice little animated piece and complements their sound nicely:
Mirador comes off their newly released album Parades. I also recommend their mini-album released earlier this year entitled Under Giant Trees.
