Danish five-piece Efterklang release new single 'Mirador' ahead of their forthcoming album Parades, follow up to the underground hit of 2004 Tripper.
'Mirador' is colourful and triumphant and rich; a fine taste of the album to come. Mixed by Darren Allison (My Bloody Valentine, Spiritualized), Parades is a breathtaking panorama of sound with few obvious antecedents, destined to be one of the best-loved albums of the year.

Listen to their new single 'Small Change'.
