Creating genre-dodging alternative/orchestral/experimental folk, Klak Tik is the brainchild of Soren Bonke, a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist hailing from the outskirts of Copenhagen. Working together with a former band-mate and a stray kiwi from their instrument-laden home in East London, and being joined by various talented cohorts to form their 8-piece live act, they expand upon sparse and tender folk tunes to produce multi-layered, pseudo-orchestral pieces of music.
Taking full advantage of their entirely independent approach to recording, and Bonke's ability to play brass, strings and extract music from nigh anything he touches, the band spent the summer in their home/studio exploring the freedoms of a multi-tracking environment by writing and recording their debut album "Must We Find a Winner", which is due for release in the middle of the year.
Melodies writing rhythms, with harmonies disobediently following suit and intersecting instrumental lines cascading atop. Lyrical imagery and inquisition, the beating of chests (of a predominantly wooden variety) and sounds of mixed heritage being caressed and coerced into place. This is the language of Klak Tik.
