Efterklang are one of Denmark’s best and most cherished bands, with a recording career spanning three full-length albums of varying styles yet all with a constant brilliance. They’ve got a new record on the way this year, Piramida, which will be released – like 2010’s Magic Chairs – through 4AD. The band have recently been over in Australia and a couple of Saturdays ago performed at the Sydney Opera House with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Grand stuff indeed.

You can now watch a performance of a new track entitled ‘The Ghost’ below. ¬†Yes, it really looks and sounds great but what else were you expecting?

Efterklang’s aforementioned Piramida is released in September this year and they will be returning to the UK in October for a handful of shows with the Northern Sinfonia. Have a peek below for more details on the UK dates and click here for some other European dates in Denmark and Ireland.
