TUNE Efterklang - Cities of Glass
Following 16 sold-out shows of their explorative opera Leaves – The Colour of Falling back in the summer of 2015, Efterklang are back with the opera’s official release; a genre-breaking collection of tracks composed in collaboration with the award winning composer Karsten Fundal, released November 4th on Tambourhinoceros.
Leaves – The Colour of Falling is Efterklang’s first release since they declared they were taking a break to reflect on their artistic practice and redefine their expression back in 2014.
Ahead of the release the band are streaming opening track “Cities of Glass”. Starting off lightly in a tonal and rhythmical language resembling the likes of Phillip Glass and Steve Reich, the track grows into an intense and dark expression. Featuring the album’s five different vocalists and array of vocal expressions, the track gives a taste of the work as a whole.
