Efterklang makes beautiful music. The Copenhagen group will release its fourth album, Piramida, on September 25th via 4AD. This is an record that we’re very excited about. It’s a truly unique album that was made in an unusual fashion. In August 2011, Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen, and Rasmus Stolberg visited Piramida, an abandoned mining settlement located on Spitsbergen, just 1,000km from the North Pole. While they were there, they sampled an Arctic ghost town and turned those recordings into instruments and music. The results are stunning. The album includes contributions from Earl Harvin (drums), Nils Frahm (wurlitzer), Peter Broderick (strings), and the 60-piece South Denmark’s Girls Choir. The band has released two tracks from the album via Soundclound. Stream “Apples” and “Hollow Mountain” below.
