Our Broken Garden is Anna Brønsted and Søren Bigum and on many occasions also Moogie Johnson. Based upon Brønsted´s songwriting they create mesmerizing pop tunes with a dark touch of mystics as perfectly showcased on this EP which is a lead up to the album When Your Blackening Shows which was released on famed UK label Bella Union in 2008. Besides singing beautifully in Our Broken Garden you will also often find Anna Bronsted touring as musician for other bands. From October 2007 to November 2008 she played piano and sang in the Efterklang live-band.
Q magazine.com “If Broensted inhabits a fairy-tale world, it’s the Brothers Grimm version, full of sylvan creepiness and child-like fear of the dark."
The Birmingham Post "Her slow-burning piano laments trickled into the consciousness, embellished with her plaintive tones, looped vocals and effects … hauntingly melodic, reminiscent of the breathy melancholia Cat Power essayed before her vampish reinvention."
NoRipcord.com"Her specialty is haunting piano music complemented by a rich and beautiful vocal… It’s gorgeous music."
Drowned in Sound.com "Elegiac arrangements in the style of labelmates Devics and Beach House, not so far from the detached etherealness of Cocteau Twins, play out beneath Broensted’s crystalline vocals across these six tracks – aching with swelling melancholy, an unspecified longing for reunion between protagonist and muse."
