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.

Introducing Private-Public Screenings of An Island!

January 12, 2011 by Rasmus

We have exciting news about AN ISLAND
- the film by Vincent Moon & Efterklang.

Allow us to introduce Private-Public Screenings
- You are hereby invited to screen An Island in your home!

Since we started sharing the news about An Island it’s been said that it will premiere in February and when we announced that An Island will support Efterklang on our upcoming European tour starting February 17th maybe some of you thought that would be the premiere – but that’s not the idea!

As of today Efterklang & Vincent Moon welcome all our listeners and followers to host their own screenings of An Island. From today people can sign up to host screenings and these will start February 1st and run until March 31st 2011.

We call these screenings Private-Public Screenings and the rules are very simple.
• The screenings need to have free entrance
• The screenings need to be public
• The screenings need to have a minimum capacity of 5 people
• The screenings need to be verified by Efterklang & Vincent Moon and only screenings that are featured on are official Private-Public Screenings

In other words as long as entrance is free and it is an open event (as capacity permits) the Private-Public Screenings can take place in your home, at a café, in a school auditorium or any place you can think of. It should be mentioned here that if you plan to host a Private-Public Screening in your home, then you are able to have full control over who can attend.

As of today it is possible to submit your own Private-Public Screening. For more information about hosting your own screening of An Island please visit

Also today we can reveal the 3rd teaser for An Island which also can be seen at

For an updated list of the current and future Official Screenings and Private-Public Screenings of An Island please go to:

We hope that a lot of people will host and attend screenings of An Island. The Private-Public Screenings are our attempt at creating a free and inspiring distribution method for our film. It is also our attempt to give something back to all of you out there! We have financed this film ourselves and we hope that we can recoup some of that money through donations. However, the memory of the 4 days we spent on the island of Als in August 2010 and our joy and pride of the finished film is a huge reward in itself.
