10-piece Danish ensemble Efterklang, a band whose name translates literally to “after-noise” but more loosely to “reverberation” or “remembrance.” All of these translations are in one way or another appropriate descriptors for the wondrous music created by the group, which settles beautifully into an open area somewhere between the elegant minimalist orchestrations of Max Richter, the electronically-enhanced chamber music of Rachel’s albums like Systems/Layers, and the more contemplative moments of Godspeed! You Black Emperor.
The most obvious characteristic that separates Efterklang from these other artists is their extensive use of vocals to augment their spacious orchestral sound. The band are signed to the British The Leaf Label.
