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 sweet blog-folks from Le Cargo ask us to do an acoustic version of one of our songs (blogotheque style), earlier this year at the Dour Festival, BE. We chose to do Mirador, and it was so much fun!!! Enjoy yourself:)

ps. Also we would like thank all the people who made it to our shows earlier this week with The National. We had such an incredible time, and the guys from the band are just as lovely and fantastic in persons as they sound!
