Boomkat Product Review:
Danish post rock troupe Efterklang have been surprising survivors of a scene that’s had more bands fall away than rocks off the cliffs of dover. Each subsequent record has found them reinvigorated and ready to try something different, and ‘Piramida’ follows that trend as it finds them stripping away the almost ADD over-instrumental reliance of their previous records in favour of minimalism and frankly good, old fashioned songs. The driving, melancholy vocals of Casper Clausen anchor the record, but it’s the restrained backdrop that keeps us coming back – there’s a sense of space and latent melancholy here that wouldn’t be out of place on a Drake album. It’s not like the band have totally reinvented themselves, but with smart, Eno/Byrne nods rubbing against haunted synthesizers they’ve managed to strip away the elements that always held them back. This is an adult record, and one that should endear them to much more demanding audiences – the trickiness that signified their early sound is all but gone, and gives way for much more thoughtful, economic songs. Slow, pensive pop music might be ‘the thing’ right now, but Efterklang’s take is both poignant and authentic.
