We are honored to receive the IMPALA award for European Independent Album of The Year!
Magic Chairs came out a year ago now and currently we are on our last tour with these songs. It is a really good tour so far, we just feel really happy about everything. The record we have made, the many concerts we’ve played, the Efterkids project and of course An Island – the film we have made with Vincent Moon. Once this tour finishes in Copenhagen on March 18th we will take a break before we start working on our 4th album, but we are already full of ideas and motivation for making our next album – can’t wait to get started!
Thanks to everyone who has supported us this past year. We are thankful that we are able to do this and we are grateful towards our many friends that help us in so many ways to create our records and to play concerts across the globe. Thank You!
We are very happy that this beast is finally released! It was A LOT of hard work to get to here and we hope the results will be enjoyed and appreciated. It is available from today as CD+DVD and LP+DVD – enjoy!
We are also very happy to see it has received great reviews so far. If you are curious we recommend the BBC review (in English) and the Gaffa review (in Danish).
Listen toCutting Ice to Snow (live) (w. The Danish National Chamber Orchestra)
We would like to use this opportunity to thank The Danish National Chamber Orchestra & Karl Bjerre Skibsted, Benjamin Hesselholdt & and his film crew, Ralf Christensen and Anders Bøtter, Hvass&Hannibal & all their helpers, Jesper Andersen and not least Karsten Fundal for breathing new life into our songs. These people have worked tremendously hard and great on this project and we are very thankful to them and to the many others that have helped who we didn’t list here.
Performing Parades can be found on iTunes and on other digital outlets, but we recommend the physical version. This is the only way to get the DVD which includes the Performing Parades concert film and the Recreating Parades documentary film and also 7 music videos from the original Parades album.
Yes we are indeed. Please come by if you are around. It was so much fun last time and we hope for the same tonight. As last time we are very bad at fulfilling requests, but if you bring your favorite song on a cd-r or iPod we will play it (if we like it)!
The party starts at 22:00
The address is Guldbergsgade 7A – Copenhagen N – www.soupanatural.dk
Their cocktails are very very good and as organic as cocktails can be!
The notorious website Pitchfork has publicized their top 40 of Music Videos of 2008. We are proud and honored to see that the video directed by Jeremiah Zagar for our song Cutting Ice To Snow is among their favorites!
Then next we have two videos!
A new video for Doppelgänger from our album Tripper (2004) and a video for Mimeo from our album Parades (2007). The last one has been online for some time but we never presented it properly as it truly deserve. Please enjoy the videos we think they are brilliant both of them.

Hello friend and a very happy Wednesday to you!
It is Day 3 of our Gift Week and today we have something very special for you! It is a new music video for our song Cutting Ice To Snow made by Jeremiah Zagar and Herzliya Films from New York.
Jeremiah is currently riding a wave of acclaim and success for his documentary film In a Dream. The film uses Efterklang music and that is how and why this video developed. The material used in the video is deleted scenes and extra material for the documentary. We really like this video! It is very uplifting and different at the same time. We hope you will like it too!
You can download it as a high quality quicktime here (44mb)

Redrop was released on our debut mini-album Springer in May 2003. This free MP3 is a cover version made by Josh Childs. We don´t know much about Josh. He emailed us this cover and we like it very very much! Thats basically all we know about Josh.
If Josh reads this then maybe he can comment with some info about himself and his music?
