Stan says: #Monday. While listening to the new Nils Frahm album ‘Felt’ this morning, talk turned to Frahm’s sometime Producer and Efterklang live member Peter Broderick and the cover version the two recorded together last year for an Efterklang b-side (and what has now become side project Oliveray). We were lucky enough to catch one of the Bella Union Birthday gigs at Bush Hall a couple of years ago with a line up that featured all three of the above mentioned artists. Initially going along to see Broderick, in the end it was special guests Efterklang who blew our minds that night. Despite some impressive turns however, to our ears Efterklang have not yet managed to capture the full scale or majesty on record that they are capable of delivering on stage. We’ll keep on waiting hopefully for that particular recorded moment to occur, but in the meantime this stripped down ‘Harmonics’ cover still does a near perfect job of letting Efterklang’s musical charms cut through in an altogether more understated (but no less affecting) manner than the sometime colossi we fell in love with on stage.
