Vincent Moon & Efterklang presents: AN ISLAND

November 9, 2010 by Rasmus

Three months ago in August we met up with our friend and French filmmaker Vincent Moon on an island in the Danish country side. The objective was to shoot a film. A film with the same length as an album and a film full of performances, experiments and collaborations.

We were there with our 8-piece live band featuring Niklas Antonson (Slaraffenland), Heather Broderick, Peter Broderick and Frederik Teige. Over an intense period of 4 days we managed to collaborate with more than 200 local musicians, kids and parents.

Today we are able to present the very first teaser of this film and we can also let you know that the film will premiere in February 2011.

We value An Island as much as we value our albums. We consider it one of the finest projects we have ever been involved in and can’t wait to share it with you.

Please enjoy the teaser below

Performing Parades – update and all the nice details!

August 26, 2009 by Rasmus

Hello! as you might know we will release Performing Parades our new CD&DVD & LP/DVD (live album and concert film) on October 19th 2009. The release is a collaboration with The Danish National Chamber Orchestra and everything was recorded live in Copenhagen last year.

In Denmark the release will be available via our own record label Rumraket
- click here for more info

In rest of the world the release will be available via The Leaf Label
- click for more info

Pre-order here:

The release is a new and live interpretation of our Parades album from 2007. The CD & LP part of Performing Parades holds the live audio of Efterklang & The Danish National Chamber Orchestra playing the songs from Parades from start to finish in new arrangements. In many ways we actually think this version of Parades is stronger and better than the original Parades album.

The DVD part of this release holds a 55-minute concert film by Benjamin Hesselholdt entitled Performing Parades. The DVD also holds a 35-minute behind the scenes documentary entitled Recreating Parades by Ralf Christensen and Anders Bøtter. On top of all this you also get 6 music videos from the original Parades album and also an acoustic live performance of Mirador. We hope you will find all of this interesting!

We should also mention that we will be TOURING MOST OF THE FALL AS A 7-PIECE! click here for dates

Included in the tour is a PERFORMING PARADES CONCERT with BRITTEN SINFONIA in BARBICAN HALL, LONDON on October 28th – click here for tickets

AND FINALLY – This is how the front cover will look like! It is made by our favorite designers/artists Hvass&Hannibal

- Take care

May 30, 2009 by Rasmus

When we attendend the SXSW Festival in Austin back in March one of the shows we played was a lawn party hosted by Other Music and Dig For Fire. It was in a nice green garden behind the French Legation Museum and besides a very stressed performance due to technical issues it was such a nice day.

The nice people from Dig For Fire just emailed us to say that their videos from the party now are online at If you follow this link you can see one of the episodes featuring yours truly and J Tillman of Fleet Foxes.

Watch Efterklang and J Tillman on
