NEWS: Efterklang release new E.P ‘Plexiglass’

Efterklang have returned with a new E.P ‘Plexiglass’, which is released via City Slang and followed by a European and UK tour later in the year. It’s the Danish trio’s first new material since 2021’s Windtowers and offers glimpses of an introspective side to the band rarely showcased on previous material.

Speaking about the new E.P, Efterklang’s Casper Clausen said: “Plexiglass is a mid-summer bouquet of various kinds – new and older song seeds we’ve nurtured and bred in cohesion with each other, with help from so many dear and talented friends. Plexiglass feels like the darker side to Windflowers, a place where we dared to stare a bit deeper into the shadows of our sound and songwriting. At times it propels me back to our early work on Tripper and Parades, for example the glitchiness of “Rain Take Me Back Himalaya” and the journey of “Limited Memory”- I’m very grateful that these songs found a way to join each other on Plexiglass.”

As is customary for the band’s output, the new EP features plenty of guests and collaborators. ‘Rain Take Me Back Himalaya‘ features long time friend of the band Karl Hyde of Underworld on guitar and ‘Limited Memory‘ features composer and vocalist Katinka Fogh Vindelev who the band previously has worked with on the albums Magic Chairs (2010), Piramida (2012) and Leaves: The Colour of Falling (2016).

The EP’s artwork is by long time Efterklang collaborators Hvass & Hannibal with photography by Anne Bek.

Plexiglass will be available as a limited edition screen printed one-sided transparent 12”, available for pre-order now via the band’s shop.

Efterklang play three U.K shows as part of a large European tour this summer, dates are:


23rd: The Glee Club – Birmingham

24th: Boiler Shop – Newcastle

25th: Summerhall – Edinburgh
