Efterklang :: "Modern Drift"

A hesitant, plinking piano-riff runs the length of Efterklang's "Modern Drift," like a lonely double yellow line on a piece of highway that people never use. It is seemingly unrequited and dedicated, a guiding bit of forever for no one to ever fully appreciate. "Modern Drift" eventually spins off into thudding drums, whirring and mournful strings and the kind of quieter moments that made Sufjan Stevens a million, billion dollars in 2005. Ultimately, an intense layered piece of work emerges from its individual parts, so carefully put together. For nearly five-minutes, Elfterklang exists on a forgotten, lost highway, burning headlights into the darkness and weaving in-between the yellow lines.
