WOW- European Album of the Year! – THANK YOU!

February 28, 2011 by Rasmus

We are honored to receive the IMPALA award for European Independent Album of The Year!

Magic Chairs came out a year ago now and currently we are on our last tour with these songs. It is a really good tour so far, we just feel really happy about everything. The record we have made, the many concerts we’ve played, the Efterkids project and of course An Island – the film we have made with Vincent Moon. Once this tour finishes in Copenhagen on March 18th we will take a break before we start working on our 4th album, but we are already full of ideas and motivation for making our next album – can’t wait to get started!

Thanks to everyone who has supported us this past year. We are thankful that we are able to do this and we are grateful towards our many friends that help us in so many ways to create our records and to play concerts across the globe. Thank You!

Here is a goody video we did for IMPALA

European Tour Right Now!

February 26, 2011 by Rasmus

Last week we had a blast with our new project Efterklang+Daniel Bjarnason & Their Messing Orchestra at the Cross Linx Festival in Holland.

This week we started our tour with the 7-piece live band. So far we have played in Cardiff, Sheffield, Glasgow and Manchester. All four shows have been incredible – thank you all!!

This weekend we end the UK part of the tour in Newcastle and London and then we continue to Belgium, France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovakia, Germany and finally Copenhagen on March 18th.

When we played in Glasgow this thursday Jenny Soup was present and did this drawing of us. Daniel James (of Canon Blue) is missing in the drawing though as he was behind Casper and Rasmus from where Jenny stood in the audience. The Guardian gave us a 5 star review for the same concert – wow!

THIS WEEK ONLY: Efterklang+Daniel Bjarnason & Their Messing Orchestra

February 14, 2011 by Rasmus

We are starting rehearsals today with the full band and we are über excited! This might be the best band line-up for an Efterklang concert ever!!!

It is the usual 7-piece Efterklang live band with Daniel James (of Canon Blue) on guitar, Heather Broderick on piano and Peter Broderick on vibes and steel drum.

And then we have the brilliant Icelandic composer Daniel Bjarnason on Rhodes and then you add a saxophone quartet, a brass quartet and a classic percussionist

This all turns into Efterklang+Daniel Bjarnason & Their Messing Orchestra – our new 17 piece band!

We will be playing Efterklang songs with arrangements for the Messing Orchestra by Daniel Bjarnason.

We are playing 4 concerts with this special band this week. We will be visiting Utrecht, Eindhoven, Groningen and Rotterdam and all shows are part of the CrossLinx Festival. The National and Owen Pallett are also on the bill and so is a line of other incredible artists.
