We were so lucky to be present at the award ceremony together with director Andreas Koefoed. After the ceremony we played our debut concert in Warsaw. We had a terrific time. Thanks to everyone and a special thanks to Andreas Koefoed. We love you and we love the film you have made. Thank you!

Trentemøller & Efterklang Remix swop + Artwork Contest!

July 25, 2011 by Rasmus

We have remixed fellow Dane Trentemøller’s song Tide and he has made a killer remix of our song Raincoats. Together with Filter Magazine we are now hosting an artwork contest. You have the chance to create the official artwork for the digital release of this remix swop. Please give it a go! You can listen to the remixes and read about the artwork contest rules right here.

Efterklang – Raincoats (Trentemøller Remix)

Trentemøller – Tide (Efterklang Remix)

Trentemøller and Efterklang will pick the winner and as we have remixed each others music the challenge is to remix the artwork worlds of Trentemøller and Efterklang into something new. We would like to stress however that remix is to be understood loosely. All contesters are encouraged to create exactly the artwork they feel like, but it would be fun if the submissions are inspired by the artwork worlds of Efterklang and Trentemøller.

The contest aims at painters, photographers, graphic designers and visual artists in the widest sense, both young and old and established and non-established artists.

Contest Submission Guidelines:
1) Listen to the two remixes

2) Please email your image to Your submitted file should be a jpeg at 1200 x 1200 pixel size and 72dpi resolution. Filesizes exceeding 1MB will be rejected. Submission deadline: 05th August 2011. Submissions will be posted here as they come in: Flickr

3) Efterklang and Trentemøller will pick the winner(s) and the winning artwork will become the official cover of the release. The 10 best pieces of artwork will also be featured and credited in the official iTunes release‘s digital booklet.

Further prizes include Efterklang‘s „An Island“-DVD, Trentemøller‘s „Into The Great Wide Yonder“ limited edition and merchandise from both bands.

The Story of Ping – episode 1 “Reach”

August 2, 2007 by Rasmus

A while ago our song Towards The Bare Hill from our mini-album Under Giant Trees was part of ThinkSynchFilms short film Competition.

We can now proudly present one of the results from this. Iyvone Khoo and Miguel Guzman from the UK have made a nice little video. Its a story of a girl puppet named Ping who is on a quest for freedom.

Iyvone and Michael would like to make an episode two of this story. They would like to hear from you what should happen to Ping now? Any suggestions? Please leave them as a comment
