Quick Overview

At times the record approaches pop bliss (albeit Sigur Rós style, not Beach Boys), or cinematic soundtrack vibes, but the album also has fully-conceived orchestral underpinnings with recurring themes running throughout. Brimming with pastoral beauty, Float proves 21-year-old Broderick to be one of the most promising modern classical composers on the scene, his emotive soundscapes comparable to the works of Michael Nyman, Max Richter, and Harold Budd. Esteemed company for sure, but he is that good.

Details

Home is a collection of folk songs recorded at the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008. In late 2007, Peter Broderick toured all around Europe with the Danish ensemble Efterklang, playing violin and opening the shows as a solo act. His recorded work up to this time had been primarily instrumental, but as he began to play live shows, he discovered that he also had a passion for singing. And so, when he had a break from touring at the end of the year, he set out to make an album that was the opposite of his previous piano and string-based recordings. With Home, he has made an album with neither of these instruments. The result is based around layers of vocals and guitars. Recorded in various places in various parts of the world, it is an album about finding a home. Written, performed, recorded, and produced by Broderick himself, and mixed with his good friend and sound wizard from Efterklang
