Happy New Year Video Postcard! with 4 audio snippets!

January 1, 2010 by Rasmus

Hope you’re all enjoying yourself with family, champagne, coffee, friends, painkillers or whoever or whatever is around you today. Our tiny band have completely split up, for the cause of holiday, being literally spread all over the world. Thomas in Thailand, Rasmus in Istanbul, Casper in Toronto and Mads taking care of business in Copenhagen.

Guess we needed a little break from each other or just simply a little time with someone else. After all, we’ve been seeing the world collectively nearly everyday for the past couple of years, and very soon we’ll be joining forces again (tour dates 2010).

Wow! An entire decade just passed by, and the slipstream of nostalgia just reached our shore. From the view from our nose tips, it’s been a very very special one! Mainly because there was no Efterklang a decade ago, and secondly because we’re having the time of our life!

Lets look ahead. Just around the corner, on February 22nd (23rd in the US) 2010, we’ll release our 3rd studio album: Magic Chairs, coming out on our very own Rumraket label in Scandinavia and our brand new home 4AD in the rest of the world.

We’re ULTRA EXCITED to present it for you!!!

Here is a Happy New Year Video Postcard from our 4 corners of the world to all of you sweet people. The postcard includes 4 snippets of songs from Magic Chairs. Enjoy!


Rasmus, Mads, Thomas, Casper

Magic Chairs – our new album! – listen to new song!

November 19, 2009 by Rasmus

Today we can announce the release date, tracklist, artwork and title of our new album! We are also happy to tell you that you can download the opening song for free right now!

February 22nd 2010 we will release our third full length album and we are exited! We’re calling this new baby for Magic Chairs and we are curious to find out how you will like it as it definitely introduces a new Efterklang sound.

We have been working on the album since January 2009 and we have played and tested several of the new songs on the road throughout the year on our different tours. We recorded the album in Feedback Recording studio in Århus and in Black Tornado, STC Studio and our own studio (all three) in Copenhagen. The record is mixed by our new friend Gareth Jones (Depeche Mode, Nick Cave & Grizzly Bear) and I think we dare to say that we are very proud of it!

Magic Chairs is our first album on our new home 4AD. This fine and legendary label will release Magic Chairs across the globe except for Scandinavia where we will release the album on our own Rumraket label.

01: Modern Drift
02: Alike
03: I Was Playing Drums
04: Raincoats
05: Harmonics
06: Full Moon
07: The Soft Beating
08: Scandinavian Love
09: Mirror Mirror
10: Natural Tune

Magic Chairs is out February 22nd 2010 – we hope you will like it!

As usual Hvass&Hannibal have made the artwork for the new album and we totally love what they came up with!

Mads, Casper, Thomas and Rasmus
