Here is some more info on our new Raincoats single. It was released as a digital single Monday this week (23rd August 2010) on 4AD and our own Rumraket label. This is the tracklist:
01: Raincoats (single edit)
02: Harmonics (covered by Peter Broderick & Nils Frahm)
Raincoats is the third single taken from our Magic Chairs album. The two previous ones were Modern Drift and I Was Playing Drums. The single version of Raincoats differs a tiny bit from the album version, hence the “single edit” extension to the name.
Track two is a cover of Harmonics (another Magic Chairs song) and we love this cover version! It is played and recorded by our two friends Peter Broderick and Nils Frahm. Both are incredible solo artists and you should buy every record they have ever made.
As many of you know Peter Broderick has taken a break from the Efterklang live-band recently due to a knee injury, but we are happy to confirm once again that he will be with us on the upcoming North American tour. All dates can be found at Efterklang.net/home/concerts
The artwork for Raincoats is made by Hvass&Hannibal and follows the same hand dyed ribbon theme as can be seen on the covers for Magic Chairs, Modern Drift and I Was Playing Drums.
