Otherworldly pop songs, both ambitious and engagingly intimate. Breathtaking panoramas of sound with few clear antecedents. Efterklang make music for the inspired. They recently began work on their third full-length album, with a release expected in the spring of 2010. So we checked in with them to get the inside word on the muisc that will be driving their new sound. They started with the Heather Broderick song, Cottonwood Bay [listen below]: ‘Heather is the sister to Peter Broderick, and like Peter did two years ago, Heather will be moving to Europe to join the Efterklang live band starting early next year. We have already played with her several times and we love her and we love her music. This song is from her debut album, From The Ground’.
