Nordic Council Music Prize, Ghost of Piramida, Trio Debut

February 22, 2013 by Rasmus

Lots of news today. We have been nominated for the Nordic Council Music Prize 2013. That’s a big honour for us and we are quite stoked to be included in such fine company. You can read more about the nominees and prize here.

This weekend there are more than 50 Private-Public Screenings of The Ghost of Piramida. This makes us very happy. We are thrilled to see the energetic and enthusiastic welcoming of the project and the film.  You can sign up to host your own screening or join one. More info here:

Efterklang as a Trio!
We played our very first concert as a trio this past week. It happened on top of a 1400 Ton heavy diesel engine. We played new songs and had a really nice experience. Thanks for Frost Festival for setting this up. Here is a little reportage from the concert:

Brandt Brauer Frick Remixes Dreams Today + Tour Update

January 24, 2013 by Rasmus

We are honored and happy to share this remix of our song Dreams Today. It is the first remix to come out of the Piramida album and it is our first collaboration with fellow Berliners Brandt Brauer Frick.

We admire the music of Brandt Brauer Frick highly and hope we’ll be able to do more stuff with them sometime in the future. We also look forward to their upcoming album Miami.

Today we also just announced three concerts in Spain and our Spring tour now counts more than 60 concerts before we hit June and the festival season begins.

You can listen to the original version and the remix of Dreams Today in this player here and over at you can get an update on the tour. We are visiting most of Europe and North America the coming months.

Support for our North American Tour – Nightlands & Jherek Bischoff + update on Mexico

January 15, 2013 by Rasmus

First of all – to all our sweet fans in Mexico. We are working hard to make the concert in Mexico happen, but we have been let down by several mistakes and miscommunications and at the moment there is no confirmed concert.

Then next we are extremely proud to present two amazing artists who will support us on our upcoming North American Tour.

Nightlands is Dave Hartley. You might know him as the bass player of The War on Drugs. Next week he will release his 2nd album (on Secretly Canadian) with the lovely title Oak Island. The album is lovely as well – in fact it is much more than lovely. You can listen to it here and via the player below and make up your own mind. We definitely recommend it highly.

Nightlands is supporting the majority of our concerts on this tour, but the first three are supported by the magnificent multitalent, composer Jherek Bischoff (Brassland & The Leaf Label). His debut album came out last year and it features rich and fully composed songs with amazing guest vocalists and instrumentalists. This albums comes highly recommended as well. Really great stuff.

Here is a video where Jherek Bischoff performs with our good friends in The Wordless Music Orchestra and everyones dream daddy David Byrne sings.

October 4, 2012 by Rasmus

Efterklang Live @metmuseum with The Wordless Music Orchestra in NYC

September 22nd we celebrated the release of our new album Piramida in New York City. We played the album in full at a sold out concert at the Metropolitan Museum of Art together with The Wordless Music Orchestra and conductor Matthew Coorey. It was a very special night for us. Hard to describe why, it was just magic.

Q2/WQXR recorded most parts of the concert for broadcast and it is possible to stream this recording now at Q2/WQXR’s website and also via NPR’s Concert Series website. The recording turned out really nice Q2/WQXR sat up an amazing mobile studio with lots of nice analog gear and they were so incredible nice to work with.

Piramida is out now – you can buy it via iTunes or via our own Webshop (deluxe CD and Vinyl).

Updated Piramida Tour Plan incl. Mojo Approval

August 6, 2012 by Rasmus

We have just returned home from our holidays and are feeling refreshed and great. While we were gone new Efterklang concerts have been announced and this is the update on our Tour Plans for 2012.

While we were gone a new Mojo Magazine also came out and it includes a very generous live review of our Piramida Concert in Sydney Opera House together with Sydney Symphony. We blushed as school kids while reading and want to share this quote with you:

Piramida is the sound of Efterklang’s grasp meeting their reach, of their ambition evading the pretentious, the blankly grandiose, and rewarding them with a masterpiece. – Mojo, Aug 2012

We’re Looking for a Singer and a Drummer for our Live-Band [UPDATED]

July 10, 2012 by Rasmus

[UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE - July 14] We have received so many emails (thank you!!) and can´t handle anymore. Please only get in touch if you are the new Whitney Houston (with a taste for Ligety) or if you are a girl drummer (with groove).


We are looking for a female singer to join our live-band. We are looking for someone in Berlin who is a trained singer and can sing soulful rock stuff like Talking Heads and who also can sing classical music style like Arvo Pärt for example. The soulful element is however the most important.

We will have auditions in Berlin August 2nd & 3rd. If you are interested then please write us at contact [at]

We are also looking for a drummer. Most of this year we are very fortunate to be playing with Budgie, but he can’t tour with us from December and onwards. If you play the drums, then get in touch. Auditions will be same days as auditions for singers.

The video here gives a good impression of what we are looking for. Enjoy! and Thank You!
