Today Efterklang return with their first new music since 2021, kicking off their next sonic chapter with Getting Reminders, a new single featuring Beirut’s Zach Condon on trumpet. The track is released alongside a new documentary ’Efterklang: The Makedonium Band’ and the announcement of an extensive European tour that will be celebrating forthcoming new music, as well as the band’s 20th anniversary.
Getting Reminders unfolds as as an intimate piece, with Casper Clausen’s vocals and acoustic guitar taking the lead. It’s an exciting new sound for the ever-evolving band. Zach Condon’s trumpet beautifully contributes to the warm and captivating sonic tapestry.
”To me, ‘Getting Reminders’ is a flash of light, a domino effect of feelings from a simple reminder, like a photo, a word, or when we encounter love, that suddenly sets our minds free” explains Casper. ”In reality, I feel a dark and highly politicised force tearing us apart, across land and culture. I feel like reminding myself that there’s a landscape that lives beyond and between us all, where we are free to cross and meet one another.”

The accompanying video creatively brings still photos from North Macedonia to life and was directed by Søren Lynggaard and Efterklang’s Casper Clausen.

The single Getting Reminders” coincides with new documentary by award-winning director Andreas Johnsen which follows the band as they spend a week in North Macedonia, assembling a group of local musicians to create a performance in front of the architecturally notable independence monument, Makedonium. A charming tour of the Macedonian music world and a fascinating insight into the creative process of the ever-exploring band,  ’Efterklang: The Makedonium Band’ is currently having its world premiere screenings at the prestigious CPH:DOX film festival in Copenhagen, and will continue to be shown at film festivals across the world throughout this year.

Watch the trailer for ’Efterklang: The Makedonium Band’: documentary features a prominent role for Getting Reminders. In a poignant and memorable scene the song is performed live for a very attentive security guard in a shopping centre and, later on, also for the President of North Macedonia. Casper explains: We took Getting Reminders with us on our trip to North Macedonia for the Makedonium Band, where the song really started shaping itself, finding resonance, it became a sort of mysterious communication tool. We would play it to many people there, from shy teens to a confident president and perform it together with local musicians in front of their freedom monument; Makedonium.

Since 2003, Efterklang have released a long list of acclaimed albums and toured internationally with their inclusive and experimental music, which innovatively blends elements of pop, indie-rock, post-rock, and electronic music. The group, consisting of Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg, has previously released the documentaries ’An Island’ in collaboration with director Vincent Moon and ’The Ghost of Piramida’ in collaboration with director Andreas Koefoed.
