Efterklang – The Piramida Concert Socks

March 14, 2014 by Rasmus


These lovely socks have been weaved in Korea and are made of cotton (95%) and polyurethane (5%). The design is based on the artwork Hvass&Hannibal created for Efterklang’s live album The Piramida Concert (2013).

You can buy a pair of these socks via our webshop. There’s only 50 pairs available and they come in two sizes. One for women and one for men. www.shop.efterklang.net

They feature a printed on Efterklang logo, but this print is not very durable and comes of easily. Everything else about the socks is super. They are lovely socks. This text was written with the socks on.

Love & Respect – The Last Concert

February 28, 2014 by Rasmus

We are still smiling and feeling from our concert two days ago in Alsion in Sønderborg. We spent the whole week, on our home island of Als, getting the concert together and it was intense and beautiful to see it evolve and happen.

There are some people we want to thank and we have posted some photos and the full program for the concert further below.

Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester for inviting us and for being one of the nicest orchestras we have ever worked with. Kultur i Syd and Alsion also deserves a big thanks for making this concert happen.

Sønderjysk Pigekor and Mette Rasmussen (their choir leader) for their harmonies and forever bright energy and eagerness to take part.

Karsten Fundal, Allan Gravgaard Madsen, Hans Ek, Van Dyke Parks, Daniel Bjarnason and Missy Mazzoli for their orchestral arrangements. We love all these composers dearly as artists and friends. We were also honoured to have Hans Ek conducting the orchestra on the night. He leads with patience and love.

Vincent Moon for his friendship and for dancing with his camera on stage. We can’t wait to see what comes out of this.

Daniel Givens for the drama of his words and voice. For his gentleness and his warm laughter that makes the cells in our bodies vibrate. For accepting the invitation to guest star the concert. It feels good to finally be in touch again, 10 years after our collaboration started.

Nils Carlsson, who played trombone in the orchestra and who 9 years ago was part of our live band and many early recordings incl. Tripper. Back then we nicknamed him Swinging Nils in the tour van. He still has it.

Hans Jørgen Clausen for his braveness and for enlightening us all with the sound and magic of the local dialect Alsisk.

Rune Mølgaard and Thomas Husmer for starting the band with us and for still being part of it. It felt right to be on stage together again.

Peter Broderick for reuniting with us and for gifting us with his musicality and friendship.

Tatu Rönkkö, Martyn Heyne and Katinka Fogh Vindelev for devoting so much time and love. The last year and half on the road with you have been an immense pleasure. Thank you.

Anders Boll for making hundreds and hundreds of our concerts sound good for years and for telling us to shut up and get on with it when needed.

Nico de Rooij and Stuart Bailes for their ever changing, impressive  and diligent efforts to light our world up.

Ron Peeters and Dirk Overeem for the monitor sound and for showing us how to make orchestras and bands sound and play well together.

To our friends and family for all the help and support and especially to our parents for joining us for the encore and for being.

Finally a warm thank you to all our collaborators and fans from around the world. So many of you travelled far to see the concert. It warmed our hearts.

Here is to the future!!

Casper, Mads & Rasmus

One Week To Go – The Last Concert! – Please Meet the Arrangers

February 19, 2014 by Rasmus

In a week from now we will be on stage playing a very special concert with Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester in Sønderborg’s concert hall Alsion.

As we announced a month back, this concert will be the last concert with Efterklang as you and we know it. We’ve also made it clear that the concert isn’t a funeral, but a night of celebration of the past and also the future.

Today we would like to introduce you to five gifted composers whom we love very much and whom all have contributed with orchestral arrangements for the concert next week.

Please meet: Karsten Fundal, Daniel Bjarnason and Missy Mazzoli who we have worked with on various projects like Performing Parades, Efterklang+Daniel Bjarnason & Their Messing Orchestra and The Piramida Concerts.

Please also meet Hans EkAllan Gravgaard Madsen and Van Dyke Parks who we are excited to be working with for the first time on arrangements.

The Last Concert – One Final Show to Celebrate Them All

January 14, 2014 by Rasmus

February 26th 2014 we will play one last concert in Sønderborg, Denmark, where we grew up.

It will be the last concert with Efterklang as you and we know it. We are not sure what happens after this concert. It is time to reflect and time to move forward. We want to fundamentally change what it means to be Efterklang and how we operate, create and perform.

So come say goodbye with us!
We are celebrating a decade of Efterklang releases and concerts and we are doing it in the most decadent way.

The local symphony Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester, conductor Hans Ek and the local girls choir will join us on stage and so will a long list of special guests including Thomas Husmer and Rune Mølgaard from the original 5 piece line-up of Efterklang.

The last concert will feature highlights from all our 4 albums as well as new songs, that in fact are almost 10 year old songs we’ve never released, but whom we care for very much. This will be the only chance to hear these songs live.

We are not taking this concert on tour and we plan on making this a very special night. An exploration, a rite of passage, a strange celebration. You are hereby invited.

For Tickets go here
For Info go here

update Jan 16th: Many people have misunderstood this announcement. We are not splitting up. This is not the end of Efterklang. It is the end of Efterklang as we know it.
