Liima (4AD - DK/FIN)

Liima = Tatu Rönkö + Efterklang

Liima consists of Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg from the legendary Danish ensemble Efterklang, as well as the Finnish percussionist Tatu Rönkkö. The quartet released their debut «ii» earlier this year on the well-known British label 4AD (Pixies, Cocteau Twins, Deerhunter, Ariel Pink, Grimes etc.)

The album was composed during four different residencies in Berlin, Helsinki, Istanbul and Madeira, and the recording was completed in Berlin, using a method of doing everything live, with no overdubs. The music is often defined as darker than Efterklang’s, and the reviews states that it is a demanding, yet still exciting piece of work.
