After five years of radio silence Sweden’s most accomplished cinematic post-rock ensemble EF return with a stunning comeback studio album which channels the band’s raw emotion and aptitude for melancholia, capturing their signature sound in unprecedented clarity and richness. We Salute You, You and You! is the picture capturing a thousand words, like the first light of day falling on your face or the exuberant smile of a young lover… it is the dance of eternity in the single moment: a warm “welcome back!” for long-time fans and a resounding “nice to meet you!” for those who yet have to get to know the great four-piece from Gothenburg.
For over 20 years EF have been bridging the divide between the sublime and the fragile with magistral compositions characterised by moments of emotional catharsis and marked human frailty. Combining the indie rock mannerisms of EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY with the hardcore attitude of MOGWAI and the orchestral approach of GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR, EF capture the magic of post-rock around the turn of the millennium, when the genre was still young and freshly exciting.
