I already blogged the album trailer for Efterklang’s forthcoming album Piramida and now they shared the video for the album’s opening track Hollow Mountain. The video was created and directed by Oodls and features the band’s own photos from the trip to Piramida as well as bits and pieces of the album artwork.
In August 2011 we (Mads, Casper & Rasmus) travelled to Spitsbergen in the arctic. Our destination was the abandoned Russian settlement Piramida. It was left overnight in 1998 and today stands as a ghost town still full of relics from its past including the world northernmost grand piano. We spent 9 days in this ruin just a 1000 km from the North Pole and we collected over a 1000 recordings which we afterwards have used in different ways in the making of our new album.
