New Efterklang Song – LOOK UP – Live from Frost

June 27, 2013 by Rasmus

Would you like to hear a new Efterklang song?
Thanks to Frost Festival you can!

Back in February we played our very first concert as a trio. It happened on top of a 1400 Ton heavy diesel engine in Copenhagen and it was all organised by the lovely Frost Festival.

The whole show consisted of new material and you can now watch and listen to our performance of the song Look Up.

RELEASED TODAY! The Piramida Concert by Efterklang & Copenhagen Phil conducted by André de Ridder

June 10, 2013 by Rasmus

* please note that the US release date is June 18th 2013.

HAPPY RELEASE DAY!
We are so happy with this live album. Since the debut in Sydney Opera House a little over a year ago we have played 18 of these Piramida Concerts with different and amazing orchestras across the globe. To have it materialise into this live album The Piramida Concert with Copenhagen Phil is a beautiful thing for us. It feels great. We want to thank Copenhagen Phil and conductor André de Ridder for making this possible and we are also sending lots of love to Karsten Fundal and Missy Mazzoli who arranged the songs for orchestra.

The Piramida Concert will only be available digitally and as a limited edition deluxe double gatefold vinyl (one black, one white + CD inside), designed by Danish artists Hvass&Hannibal.

The live album is available now in all good record stores and also through our own webshop shop.efterklang.net.

Here is a nice little presentation of the vinyl edition:

One of our personal favorites on the new live album is the track THE LIVING LAYER + VÆLV, which as the titel suggests actually is two songs. The Living Layer by Efterklang and Vælv written by Karsten Fundal. You can listen to this via Soundcloud.

Some official info for you about this new release:
The Piramida Concert by Efterklang & Copenhagen Phil was recorded live at Copenhagen’s Royal Academy of Music Concert Hall in October 2012. Over the course of two sold-out nights Efterklang – plus Peter Broderick, Katinka Fogh Vindelev and Budgie (Siouxsie and The Banshees) – teamed up with classical orchestra Copenhagen Phil and German conductor André de Ridder to perform the Danish act’s fourth album Piramida in its entirety. Staged for the first time at the Sydney Opera House in May 2012, the orchestral arrangements were written by fellow Dane Karsten Fundal and New York composer Missy Mazzoli. The Piramida Concert also features ‘So’, a song written during recording sessions for Piramida, and ‘Vælv’, a classical piece commissioned by Efterklang and composed by Karsten Fundal. The live performance was mixed to tape by Francesco Donadello in the Vox-Ton studio in Berlin.. The Piramida Concert will only be available digitally and as a limited edition deluxe double gatefold vinyl (one black, one white + CD inside).

Efterklang and the Tiny Desk Concert

April 10, 2013 by Rasmus

We like the folks at NPR Music and All Songs Considered so when Bob Boilen invited us to do a Tiny Desk Concert at the NPR building in Washington, DC we happily said: Yes Please!

We even decided to perform a new song called Danish Design. It is a song originating from our process with making the Piramida album. We recently finished it and we like this song. Hope you will like it too.

This is what Bob Boilen from NPR Music / All Songs Considered wrote about this session:
Bands with big ideas work well at the Tiny Desk. Efterklang is a Danish group whose recent album Piramida took its members to an abandoned mining town between the North Pole and Norway. There, they recorded sounds of empty oil tanks, old pianos and pretty much anything they could strike or record.

It’s precisely that creative energy that led to Efterklang ransacking our kitchen utensils and desks in search of sound-making material. The band is a joy to witness live with a small orchestra, but it’s equally compelling just the way it is here, huddled around my desk and trying ideas it’s never tried. A true adventure. –BOB BOILEN

The Ghost – New Efterklang Video by Victor Carrey + European Tour Coming Up!

April 2, 2013 by Rasmus

We are so happy with this new video! Directed by Spanish filmmaker Victor Carrey, The Ghost tells the surreal story of the curse that befalls anyone carrying an ancient amulet.

Watch The Ghost here:

For those who can’t see the YouTube version we recommend the Vimeo version.

We first met Victor Carrey in 2011 when Casper and I (Rasmus) were invited to be part of the jury for the FIB Cortos film festival in Benicassim, Spain. The winning film was Carrey’s La Huida (aka The Runaway). One the final night of celebration we decided to make a film together and The Ghost is the result. Enjoy!

The Ghost is taken from our fourth album, Piramida, out now.
