Album Notes
'..offers the same vulnerable intimacy Sufjan Stevens perfected on Illinoise' - Uncut

'breathtaking - and as good as anything you'll hear on 6 Music at any time of any day of the week' - Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music

'brimful of folk and indie sounds embellished with ornate orchestral accompaniment' - Record Collector

'the gentle orchestral folk-rock is a revelation of beauty' - Politiken

'Must We Find a Winner is a beautifully woven medley of classic rock instrumentation with generous amounts of strings and brass, which tends to stir the melodically engaging folk compositions up to dizzying heights' - Gaffa

'If you can imagine what it would sound like if Danish Efterklang or Slaraffenland joined up with a classic singer/songwriter, then you can begin to imagine what Klak Tik sounds like. But Must We Find a Winner, it has to be said, is a unique achievement' - BT

'Søren Bonke excites with his marvelous orchestral alternative folk debut and his sorrowful grip around your heart and gut' - No 8 in All Scandinavian’s 20 Best Albums of 2011

'Klak Tik should defintely have lots of credit for the towering ambition and beautiful arrangements' - Soundvenue ****

'Most positive surprise of the year so far' - 8/10 Gamereactor.dk

'uncompromising – layered and ochestral, yet transparent and condensed – these songs melt into musical mediation' - Visions 8/12

'This album contains enough for endless listens, and each time you discover something new […] hooray, we have a winner!' - Rote Raupe – Album of the week


Nominated for Danish album of the year, best Danish band & best new Danish band at the 2011 Gaffa awards.
