Boomkat Product Review:
'Caravan' is lifted from last year's Parades album, and is released to coincide with Efterklang's current European tour. Here, the Danish band sound rather different from the group who recorded the orchestral electronic post-rock opus Tripper, exchanging the majestic scale of old for a more folksy approach that features a heavy use of choral vocals and clattering drums. The brass, woodwind and strings are still in use, but on 'Caravan' they play are more understated role. Exclusive B-side - and Parades outtake - 'The Romance On Mammoth Hill' might be better still, starting awkwardly like a piano ballad that never really gets going, only to unexpectedly blossom into a fully-formed symphonic crescendo.
