SATURDAY / 22.30 / OCEANEN
For over 20 years EF have been bridging the divide between the sublime and the fragile with magistral compositions characterized 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. After five years they're back with a new album filled with raw emotion and aptitude for melancholia.
