On September 21st Liljor releases their second album “Eftermiddagens tystnad”. Just like on the first album “Skymningstund” the majority of the songs are written by Finnish composer Pentti Viherluoto but this release also features some original songs by Liljor.
The material for the songs stems from a different era. The lyrics are written in the shadow of the Spanish flu, depression and world war. The music tries to balance the melancholy with precision and in the hands of Liljor it is placed in a modern yet timeless context. Instead of, or together with, tango, Eftermiddagens tystnad echoes of drone, kraut and slow experimental pop
