"A rave in an abandoned airplane hanger, with a choir of robot angels in the loft" - Politiken
Liima is a new band consisting of the Finnish percussionist Tatu Rönkkö and three members of Efterklang, Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen og Rasmus Stolberg. Their debut album, "ii" contains songs written in Finland, Berlin, Istanbul and Madeira during a four week long working stay. Each place has had an influence on the sound. At times quite literally in the from of a sampling and field recordings - and each stay ended with a concert, in which the band performed the newly penned songs.
For Liima, (Glue translated from Finnish) the spontenaity of writing the songs and performing them live immediately, was a liberating experience. With a starting point of the simple live set up, synthesizers, drum samplers, vocals, effects and bass, it became possible for the four members to maximise the effect of their creative dynamics. The sketches were created through improvisation and worked into songs in a collective, intuitive and immediate process. The same apprach was chosen for the actual recording of the album. In October 2015 the band recorded the album over the course of just three days in the Vox-Ton studio in Berlin in collaboration with the Finnish producer Jonas Verwijnen. Everything was recorded live as a band. No overdubs and no click track. The album was then mixed to tape by Francesco Donadello. Liima will be doing a world tour in 2016 with the songs from "ii" as well as new songs, which will be tested out and honed in front of audiences. https://www.facebook.com/liimaband/
