Tatu Rönnkö, Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg – collectively known as Liima – have offered another taste from their forthcoming album ii, set for release on March 18th. ‘513’ can now be heard online via Soundcloud or below

Meaning ‘glue’ in Finnish, Liima’s debut release features songs written during four week-long artist residencies in Finland, Berlin, Istanbul and Madeira. Each place influenced the sound, sometimes literally through field recording and sampling, every residency ended with a live concert, performing the freshly written songs in front of an audience. Originally composed in Berlin, ‘513’ follows in the footsteps of album track ‘Amerika’ (watch the video for the latter below, or here), and refers to May 13, the date Liima member Rasmus got married. The song is inspired by an ancient Hawaiian wedding ceremony and befriending George Clooney’s personal assistant on a golf course.
