EFTERKLANG – MODERN DRIFT
Ya, maybe I watch So You Think You Can Dance. So what? You wanna fight about it? Maybe I like to root for the classically trained ballet phenom from Smalltown, Tennessee as he discovers himself in a Lil’ C krump routine. Or maybe I like to listen to the array of cool music chosen by the choreographers. My first experiences with artist like Frou Frou and the Irrepressibles came from watching SYTYCD, and just yesterday I was introduced to Efterklang. Coming from the Danish word meaning “remembrance”, Efterklang is a Copenhagen based indie band that have enjoyed a fair amount of critical acclaim. However, I have never heard of them, so they are my new Hidden Gem. Modern Drift is a forward moving pop song reminiscent of fellow Scandinavians Miike Snow… if they hung out with Owen Pallett for a few days. It is an inspiring builder of a song, full of strings, horns, and echoing drums. The perfect accompaniment for a Stacey Tookey contemporary routine. Ya, I like contemporary dancing. Wanna fight about it?
