Our Broken Garden

is effectively singer-songwriter (and sometimes Efterklang pianist) Anna Bronsted plus musical friends doing sensitive things on guitar, drums, Hammond organ and strings. Their songs unfurl slowly with Bronsted’s flawlessly calibrated vocals being seductively sweet yet as chilly as an icecream sundae. A distinctly Scandinavian take on matters emotional, somehow poised forever between epiphany and desolation.
