Never miss another 'Efterklang' show
The Piramida Concert: Efterklang + The Northern Sinfonia
On Saturday 26th May, Denmark's experimental alt-pop pioneers Efterklang made their Australian live debut at the Sydney Opera House. Playing alongside the Sydney Symphony, and featuring the legendary Budgie (Siouxsie and The Banshees, The Creatures) on drums, Efterklang premiered forthcoming album, Piramida, in its entirety. The Danes worked closely with classical arrangers to fully utilise the orchestra, delivering a performance that was more of an interpretation than a faithful recital of the studio record, scheduled for release on September via 4AD.
Efterklang have also confirmed Budgie will be joining the band as drummer for their October UK tour. All dates will be performed with the Northern Sinfonia.
"........music of unearthly beauty......a near perfect show...." - The Sydney Morning Herald
"It's a show that prompts goosebumps as well as laughter - a night that truly celebrates the transformative power of good music." - The Vine
This event takes place at The Sage Gateshead, which has achieved Gold Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Haunting and evocative alternative electronica from Denmark's Efterklang. Like Sigur Ros, Mum or A Silver Mt Zion before them, their largely instrumental music manages to both inspire and arouse the senses whilst remaining accessible for most. Beautiful stuff.
