    Hollow Mountain is the opening song of Efterklang´s 4th album Piramida. Released September 24th 2012 on 4AD and Rumraket.

    As previously revealed (https://vimeo.com/44683198), last summer Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg visited Piramida, an abandoned mining settlement located on Spitsbergen, just 1,000km from the North Pole. Nine days of exploring later, and the band had collected over 1,000 sound recordings and inspiration for the album they would subsequently write and record in Berlin.

    Accompanying Hollow Mountain is a specially-commissioned visual piece created and directed by Oodls (Jakob Steen & Christoffer Frandsen). The clip 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 one of Efterklang many discoveries in the ghost town of Piramida. For more info on this please see: http://efterklang.net/home/?p=1157

    With contributions from Earl Harvin (drums, Tindersticks), Nils Frahm (wurlitzer), Peter Broderick (strings) and the 60-piece South Denmark's Girls Choir, Hollow Mountain is a grand opening statement to Efterklang's fourth studio album.
