Efterklang | Magic Chairs

Magic Chairs

Some bands lull you into a sense of comfort and joy while others stir the heart and mind. The Danish band Efterklang has done both with their third LP Magic Chairs. Perhaps it’s the horns or the orchestral sense of grandeur, but Magic Chairs offers the listener a complex set of tracks with nuances worth exploring. The strings remind one of Ra Ra Riot’s while the tone is more akin to friendly chamber pop. There is a certain bread of people who have a soft spot for all bands who incorporate even a little bit of a horns section into their music. Not too much but just enough to make it memorable, Efterklang’s new album does just that.
