Søren Bonke, Matthew Mitchinson and Jonathan Beyer are Copenhagen’s Klak Tik. The post-folk trio are on the verge of releasing their forthcoming sophomore album called The Servants and ‘Reborn’ is its first single.
Their sound pays homage to old-school folk vetrans Simon & Garfunkel, yet sports similarities to that of Grizzly Bear and even Sufjan Stevens.
Søren Bonke explains his inspiration for writing ‘Reborn’:
“I was travelling on the Piccadilly Line towards Ealing during rush hour one morning and I was looking at this man in a suit sitting across from me. He looked like a zombie the way he was holding but not reading the free newspaper. I could see the words enter his head through the glassy eyes like an odour from the page, and then pour straight back out of his wilted ears. It got me thinking about my own defence mechanisms. What is my escape route? Songs are, was my conclusion, and ‘Reborn’ was written while another man was sat on the tube, holding but not reading the free paper.”
Klak Tik’s The Servants hits stores during Australia’s Spring of 2013, via Safety First Records.
