Watch: Efterklang debut new album 'Altid Sammen' live at the iconic Elbphilharmonie concert hall
Recently, Danish pop adventurers Efterklang released their fifth studio album 'Altid Sammen'. The day after the release, they debuted the record live in its entirety at the iconic Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg during this year’s Reeperbahn Festival. The trio was joined on stage by Øyunn on drums, Simon Toldam on piano and members of B.O.X, the Belgian Baroque ensemble who has played a significant role in the making of the new record. For the song ‘Hold mine hænder' they asked the staff of the Elbphilharmonie to form a choir and join them on stage, to show respect and appreciation to the many amazing people behind the scenes making it possible for the band to perform their music.
'Altid Sammen' is Efterklang's first release in seven years. It's a record full of sonic experimentation, which the trio are known for, and examines the relationships that connect us from nature to death and much more in between. Watch the debut show at the Elbhilharmonie in its entirety below.
The Altid Sammen Tour continues with their 7-piece live band featuring Øyunn on drums and vocal, Bert Cools on guitar, Indrė Jurgelevičiūtė on kankles, flute and vocal and Christian Balvig or Simon Toldam on piano and synths.
