Track: Efterklang – Getting Reminders (feat Beirut’s Zach Condon)

Efterklang have returned with their first new music since 2021, as they share their new single ‘Getting Reminders’, Which features Beirut’s Zach Condon on trumpet. The track is released alongside a new documentary ‘Efterklang: The Makedonium Band’ and news of live shows, including a special show at London’s Barbican on October 5th to celebrate the new music, as well as the band’s 20th anniversary.

Casper Clausen comments:

“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” 

“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. 

There is a happiness trapped within the strings of Clausen’s guitar as his achingly fragile vocals cut through crafting gorgeous visual scenes out of words. Condon’s trumpet slides in carrying that mournful yet strangely comforting melodic flow. Welcome back to Efterklang it is an absolute pleasure to have you back.

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.
