CRITIC REVIEWS

NME
‘ii’ is a record that unveils itself slowly, initially sounding ugly and abrasive before the melodies surge to the fore. Once you look for it, there’s beauty amidst the ugliness.

All in all, ii has a lot going on, but never feels overwrought, rather perfectly furnished with an array of ideas and styles.

The Line of Best Fit

Liima’s sound isn’t for everyone, but for those who let ii sit with them for a while even the fuzziest, most dissonant moments will eventually feel like a revelation.

60
AllMusic

The ten tracks on ii feature the type of delicate electronic textures and melodies typically associated with Efterklang, but with a bit more playfulness than their main group's recordings usually contain.

DIY
Looking to the future for Liima feels unimportant, with ‘ii’ standing comfortably on its own with no hang-ups from what came before, or considerations for what could be next.

Drowned in Sound

The intensity and thick yet changing textures combined with frantic electronics and complex percussion can wear a little thin the deeper you go.

Efterklang pair up with Finnish percussionist Tatu Rönkkö to deliver a captivating synth-pop record that extends their trademark sound into somewhat more experimental and abrasive terrain.
Purchasing ii from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
