Happy New Year!!!

December 31, 2008 by Barnabas

Dear friends
Happy New year to all you and yours: We had the most amazing past year, with so many incredible experiences around the globe… Possibly the best in Efterklang history. Thanks a lot to all of the people making each concert special, and to all of you showing us love one way or another!

Hope 2009 will bring you all much luck

All of us

christmas card 5th December 2008
It might be a little early for this kind of greeting, but for Efterklang the year ends tomorrow in Athens, Greece when we will play the very last concert of our Parades tour. In the last 14 months, the tour has taken us to North America, China, and almost every single country in Europe. In total we have played 133 concerts since October 16th 2007. The entire list of concerts can be read below.

We have documented most of our travels on our flickr photo page: – There are more than 1000 photos to be flickered.

We would also like to present our new Vimeo site. All our videos can be found in there including Cutting Ice To Snow, which Pitchfork just selected as one of the Top 40 videos of 2008. And as of today you can also watch the premiere of our new video for Polygyne by Carolina Melis.

It has been one of the best years ever for us, and we are now looking forward to future adventures and new Efterklang releases in 2009. We also look forward to upcoming albums by Slaraffenland and Taxi Taxi! which will be released on our label Rumraket in 2009.

A thousand thanks (as we say in Danish) to everybody that somehow took part in this past year. We have experienced so many things and it is nice to have been able to share it with so many friends, musicians, collaborators and listeners!

WOWWWW!!!! and we are on our way to China!

September 29, 2008 by Rasmus

last Friday the Performing Parades Concert premiered in Copenhagen. There is no doubt that this is wildest thing yet to happen for us. We would like to thank DR UnderholdningOrkestret for playing with us! Karsten Fundal for arranging the score! Karl Bjerre-Skibsted for inviting us and for being so über cool as the producer of the whole thing. We would also like to mention that Hvass&Hannibal are the coolest designers/visual artists on this planet and that their scenography and costumes were more than brilliant! Also thanks to Benjamin Hesselholdt and his extremely hard working team of cool and friendly light and camera people!

and thanks to all who came to the shows!!! we had an incredible time!!

Last Friday we were more than 50 people on stage!! Today we travel to China to perform as a 6 piece band!! Very schizophrenic and also very uplifting. We are so happy to see the different forms that Efterklang take these days!

When Thomas turned 30!

July 29, 2008 by Rasmus

When Thomas turned 30 on July 11th we played in Bracknell, England at the Fringe Festival.

In the outro of Caravan we started singing Happy Birthday to You and soon the crowd sang with us for Thomas. The photo below is taken by Adrian Holden exactly at the moment when a very happy and surprised Thomas came forward to the stage and received his honor!

Thomas turns 30
Look how happy he is! it is good to turn 30!

we love Carlos Sastré and le Tour de France!!!

July 27, 2008 by Rasmus

yesterday we arrived at the airport in Barcelona and when we stepped out of the gate we were very lucky to catch the last km of Carlos Sastrés time trial. To our joy and surprise we saw that he had defended his yellow jersey!

Today when Carlos will be celebrated as the winner of Tour de France 2008 we are in Zaragoza, Spain the home country of Carlos. Im sure that when we play tonight at the EXPO 2008 we will give Carlos a shout out!

5 year anniversary as a live band! Today!!! free Mp3 gift!

March 6, 2008 by Rasmus

March 6th 2003 we played our very first concert as Efterklang. It was in Copenhagen at Huset I Magstræde and in order to get the job we had to rent the venue and organize and promote the gig ourselves. To make it a special night we invited a 36 piece brass band (which Thomas used to play in) to share the bill with us – it was a great evening indeed!
First Efterklang concert March 6th 2003
Thomas´father took this photo of the concert – we look so different!!

Today will be also be a special day for Efterklang. We are playing in Sønderborg in the southern part of Denmark. This is where Mads, Casper and me (Rasmus) grew up and where we our parents still live – we look forward to play for them and hopefully a lot of their grey haired friends so we can celebrate with style! It will be our debut in Sønderborg!

In order to mark this special day for us we are giving away a completely new song entitled Mirror Mirror. It is a live recording from the Nordklang festival in St. Gallen Switzerland – we played there February the 16th in a former erotic cinema!

DOWNLOAD for free – MIRROR MIRROR (live – 2008)

We are going to tour a lot until summer so please come and se us if you get the chance! The two next weeks bring Danish, Swedish and Norwegian concerts – then we go to UK, Ireland, France and Benelux – and then we go somewhere new!! soon to be announced. Most shows are listed here: Efterklang concerts

lots of love from

Ps. We would also like to show you this youtube clip that someone has uploaded from our concert in Vienna on February the 4th. We are playing Caravan – it was a night to remember!

3 Steppeulven Awards!!

February 3, 2008 by Rasmus

We won our first 3 awards! YAY! Steppeulven is an annual award show arranged by the music critics in Denmark. We won Best Album, Best Group and Best Composers!

We were not there to receive the prices as we are touring these days (see below) – so all our parents accepted the prices on our behalf! Thank you moms and dads! Also thank you to all the Danish critics for liking our music!

Posted in Celebration, Efterklang, Hurra!

an ongoing feeling of WOW – 5 DMAs and Roskilde Festival!

January 18, 2008 by Rasmus

yesterday we got nominated for 5 Danish Music Awards! And the day before we were announced to play this years Roskilde Festival!

When we play at Roskilde in July it will be our second time there and we look so much forward to it. That festival is a very special one – a highlight of the year.

When we attend the Danish Music Awards show in February it will our very first time, and to be honest we had never expected to be invited to such a party. It is equivalent to the American Grammys but much smaller in scale of course. We were maybe hoping that our Mirador video would be nominated – but 5 total that is completely crazy. The categories are Best album, best group, best electronica album, best artwork and best video.

here is a happy little fellow to celebrate!!
