Home / Biography / Efterklang


Efterklang’s post-rock tests were initial heard in Dec 2000, when child years close friends Casper Clausen (vocals), Mads Brauer (pc), and Rasmus Stolberg (acoustic guitar) — all 3 having recently moved to Copenhagen from your tiny Danish isle of Als — joined music causes with pianist Rune Mølgaard (piano) and drummer/trumpeter Thomas Husmer. Right away, the bandmembers took a D.We.Y. method of their music, managing all areas of songwriting, documenting, and production within their Copenhagen practice space. The self-released Springer EP was released in 2003 around the band’s personal Rumraket label, with 500 copies packed in fake hair. That same 12 months, video designer Karim Ghahwagi became a member of the ensemble and started pairing Efterklang’s music with integrated video collages. Right now attracting interest from record brands, the band authorized with Yorkshire’s The Leaf Label and released Tripper in 2004; the orchestral recording quickly became the fastest-selling debut within the Leaf Label’s background. Efterklang’s recognition soared in Denmark, with “Under Large Trees and shrubs” debuting at number 1 for the country’s singles graph. Several smaller produces implemented — the reissued edition of Springer, One-Sided LP on Philadelphia’s Burnt Toast Vinyl fabric, the five-song Under Large Trees and shrubs — and Efterklang released their third full-length, Parades, in Oct 2007. The group toured thoroughly for another two years, as well as the effort ethic paid with an invitation to become listed on the roster of 4AD in Sept of 2009, alongside the Country wide, TV on the air, and Deerhunter. However, the band continued to be devoted to its initial indie label, and the next month The Leaf Label released Performing Parades, a live Disc of Efterklang executing Parades in its entirety using the Danish Country wide Chamber Orchestra in Copenhagen. For 2010’s Magic Seats, Efterklang’s 4AD debut, Clausen, Brauer, Stolberg, and Husmer attempted a far more traditional rock audio by recording the essential tracks live like a four-piece before adding their customary lush plans. In August of 2011 the music group journeyed to the Arctic isle of Spitsbergen, an forgotten Russian settlement close to the North Pole. In Spitsbergen they spent amount of time in the forgotten town of Piramida documenting sounds around the decaying remnants from the town’s leftover commercial remnants, including large silos performing as reverb tanks as well as the world’s northernmost piano. This audio expedition offered a range of exclusive sonic textures along with the motivation for 2012’s isolated and shimmering full-length Piramida.
