Product Description

Now in their tenth year together, Danish band Efterklang seem to take a giant evolutionary step with every album, and on Magic Chairs you get the sense that this most unusual of groups have shed whatever post-rock baggage was left over from their acclaimed Parades album. 'Modern Drift' ushers in a record that's far more interested in the crafting of songs than bombastic orchestral gestures or flickering electronics, with a piece like 'I Was Playing Drums' really underlining that shift in strategy. It's this song that confirms Efterklang's recalibration as an effective - if fairly avant-garde - pop group. The swelling ensemble performances and elaborately knitted together productions are still called upon, but there's greater substance to Magic Chairs than its predecessors. Given the emphasis on string-heavy chamber-pop songwriting, you might consider Efterklang as now occupying a similar space in the alternative music world as the likes of Owen Pallett or Andrew Bird. There's still work to be done however, and the album still coughs up the odd misfire ('Raincoats' is alarmingly reminiscent of 'Hangin' Tough' by New Kids On The Block), but for the most part this first outing for the band on 4AD is a triumphant one, making a strong case for crossover success.
