Happy New Year! Free Remix and New Video!

December 31, 2010 by Rasmus

We hope you had a fantastic 2010 and we hope your 2011 will be even better!

To celebrate the new year we are hereby giving you a new free remix of Raincoats made by Kasper Winding and also a video featuring the (almost) original version of Raincoats and footage from the Danish web series Robin Färdig by Danish director Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen.

Listen to Raincoats (Kasper Winding Remix)
[audio: Winding-Remix.mp3]
Download Raincoats (Kasper Winding Remix) here. We suggest that you add this remix to the playlist for your party tonight!

Raincoats + Robin Färdig Video

The entire Robin Färdig web series can be watched at Raincoats is the theme song for the series and the Raincoats video gives you a glimpse of the Robin Färdig world. Currently there is no international version of the series but if you understand Danish we recommend the series – it is fun and brings back memories of the troubled times in high school.

Before we say goodbye we want to give you these four recommendations of some of our favorite albums released in 2010.
Casper liked Murder – Gospel of Man a lot
Thomas liked M.I.A – Maya a lot
Rasmus liked Clogs – The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton a lot
Mads liked Owen Pallett – Heartland a lot

Have lots of FUN tonight and take care of each other and the rockets.
Thanks for another great year!

Mads, Casper, Thomas & Rasmus

Looking back – appetizer

December 14, 2010 by Rasmus

The year is coming to an end so as usual we all look back and try to remember all the great things that happened. Especially music medias like to indulge in this kind of thing and right now they are all doing their year end lists – and we are of course happy see our Magic Chairs album pop up in a good bunch of these lists.

Our label 4AD also look back and today their Year in Review post is about Efterklang:

The Danish Magazine Soundvenue asked us to pick three albums that we liked in 2010. This was not easy as we like around 50 albums released this year. Anyway our selection was just posted today:

We promise to do a bigger post about 2010 later on! Stay tuned.
In the meanwhile feel free to tell us about your favorite albums released this year.

Efterkids found in Belgium!

November 22, 2010 by Rasmus

This week we play three concerts in Belgium (and one in Istanbul) and for the concert in Brussels we are happy to announce that we will be joined by 6 local Efterkids!

Efterkids is our attempt to raise awareness for the need for free music education in schools. It also works as a project that makes it possible for us to collaborate with kids across the globe in real life on stages but also online via the course material available at

For the concert at AB (Ancience Belgique) on Wednesday Yumika Lecluyze who teaches at the music school of Sint Agatha Berchem will bring 6 of her students who has been rehearsing on the string parts for Natural Tune and Full Moon the last couple of weeks. We look forward to meet the kids and play music with them. We don’t know their names yet, but we know that they are 8,10 and 11 years old and that Yumika teaches them after the Suzuki Method.

This is a list of the concerts we are playing this week:

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

CHORDS – recap video!

November 3, 2010 by Rasmus

Tomorrow we start a new tour in Europe and to kick this off and same time honor the previous tour in North America a month back we want to share this video with you.

It is sort of a “best of” or a summary of our CHORDS project. When we toured North America in September and October 2010 we filmed a CHORD everyday and posted it to our photo blog on Flickr. The video we want you to watch now today contains snippets of each chord.

The project worked as an alternative tour diary and was developed on the go. It features guest stars, singing water taps, audiences, random strangers, helicopters, Harley’s and lots more.

You can watch the entire collection of CHORDS here!

Final Magic Chairs Tour Announced!

October 27, 2010 by Rasmus

As you might know we will be on the road in November in Denmark, Liverpool, Belgium, Istanbul, Spain, Lisbon, Russia & Uppsala. But we also just announced a full European tour in February and March 2011.

This will be the absolute last chance to see Efterklang perform live for a considerable amount of time. After this tour we will take a break and when we get back together we will begin the work for our 4th album and we have decided that there won’t be any Efterklang concerts before this album is finished.

The tour in 2011 will be special as it is the last, but also because of the first 4 shows that will be very special and then we have a very special support act/event lined up for the rest of the tour. We look forward to announce this soon.

Once this last tour is over we will have played more than 340 concerts since October 2007. It feels like we have been on tour almost constantly. We have loved every second of it and would just like to say thanks for the ride!
