About Hollow Mountain (by Efterklang)
This visual piece accompanying Hollow Mountain is created and directed by Oodls (Jakob Steen & Christoffer Frandsen). The piece features the band’s own photos from their trip to Piramida as well as elements of Piramida album artwork (designed by Hvass&Hannibal).
The initial tones of Hollow Mountain are the sounds of protruding metal spikes of a curious-looking oil tank, which we found in Piramida. More info about this instrument can be found in yesterdays news post.
Hollow Mountain features contributions from Earl Harvin (drums, Tindersticks), Nils Frahm (wurlitzer), Peter Broderick (strings) and the 60-piece South Denmark’s Girls Choir. We hope you agree that this is nice song to open our new album with.
Piramida will be released world-wide on September 24th 2012 (Sep 25th in the US) on 4AD and via their own little label Rumraket.
