Thanks – Performing Parades, Holland Festival

June 23, 2010 by Rasmus

Just quickly wanted to say thanks to Holland Festival for inviting us to their incredible festival. We got to do a Performing Parades concert with Metropole Orkest conducted by Vince Mendoza and we had such a good time. Thanks again to all involved!

After that trip we can now forgive Holland for beating Denmark 2:0 in the World Cup!

Efterklang & Oh No Ono remix swap and SUMMER greeting VIDEO!

June 10, 2010 by Rasmus

More free remixes to offer! And this time also a nice video to celebrate summer and this new remix swap. Oh No Ono is a superb band and we were happy not only to do a remix swap but also to jump in the cold Danish water with them!

The remix they have made for Modern Drift was done in their tour bus in one day on a drive from Cologne to Paris! We copied that idea, but it took us many many kilometers before we nailed our remix of their Icicles song.

For Oh No Ono’s remix of ‘Modern Drift’:

For Efterklang’s remix of ‘Icicles’:

The video was filmed by Kristian Sidelmann and by Andreas Munksgaard who also did the editing.

Icicles is from Oh No Ono’s latest and great album Eggs. You can visit the band at

Efter Weekend maybe?
In our recent newsletter we promised you that we would air a lot of new remixes soon. Today is first day of soon! Efterklang & Turboweekend are two very different bands, but we also have a lot of things in common. We both hail from Copenhagen, we both work closely with Hvass&Hannibal and Morten and Rasmus are even squash buddies!

Recently we have been working on a remix swap with Turboweekend and today we are ready to present these remixes for you. They are both available for free download. Enjoy!

Turboweekend remix of Efterklang’s song Full Moon
Download: Full Moon (Turboweekend Remix)
you can listen to the original on and on our Magic Chairs album of course…

Efterklang remix of of Turboweekend’s song Sweet Jezebel
Download: Sweet Jezebel (Efterklang Remix)
you can listen to the original on and on their Ghost of a Chance album

This is only the second official Efterklang remix ever! The first one we did was for Grizzly Bear back in 2005. The last artist to remix Turboweekend was DJ/rock star Tiësto -and yes we also follow him on Twitter and are intrigued by this DJ phenomena! It feels good to be the follow up to a Tiësto remix! hehe

Two Performing Parades Concerts this Summer!

May 19, 2010 by Rasmus

Our Performing Parades project returns for two very special performances this summer. First up, on June 19, is a performance with Metropole Orkest at the Holland Festival in Amsterdam. On August 11 we team up with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra for a big open air concert for Stockholm Kulturfestival.

Performing Parades premiered back in September 2008 when we collaborated with The Danish National Chamber Orchestra and composer Karsten Fundal on a special performance of our second album Parades. The album was performed in its entirety at Danish National Radio’s new Koncerthuset concert hall. The performance featuring more than 50 musicians and stage design and costumes by our dear friends Hvass&Hannibal was filmed and recorded and released as a CD+DVD and 2LP+DVD in October 2009 on The Leaf Label – more info about this release here.

Last year we got to perform Parades twice (both with the Britten Sinfonia) and we are excited and thrilled to be able to revisit this massive project this year again.

The dates of the new shows are as follows:

Saturday June 19
Muziekgebouw ann’t IJ, Holland Festival, Amsterdam, NL
Performing Parades with Metropole Orkest
Conducted by Vince Mendoza

Wednesday August 11
Stockholm Kulturfestival, SE
Performing Parades with Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra
Conducted by Paul Hoskins
