Danish group Efterklang have just released their sixth album, Windflowers, which is their first for City Slang. The trio of Mads Brauer, Rasmus Stolberg and Casper Clausen made it with contributions from Indrė Jurgelevičiūtė, Bert Cools, Øyunn and Christian Balvig, and it finds them blending effervescent synthpop with their emotive, expansive, orchestral sound, while exploring themes of hope and change. It's a lovely album and you can stream it below.
We asked Efterklang if they could tell us a little about the inspirations behind Windflowers, and Mads, Rasmus and Casper obliged, each offering up two examples, complete with commentary. Their list includes everything from Lee Scratch Perry and Laurie Anderson to podcasts, cities and more. Read it below.
