Indians released their debut album, Somewhere Else, through 4AD last week.
Recorded in a countryside studio outside Copenhagen, Somewhere Else is a highly personal document that's equal parts melancholic lament and hopeful stargazing, with the album title itself an indication of the sense of otherness that runs throughout Søren's music. Heavily evocative of the natural world, the album's cavernous tones and Autumnal warmth just as much recall the vastness of the Scandinavia landscape that formed the backdrop of its conception as it does classic long players from likeminded avant-pop purveyors Flaming Lips and Radio Dept.
The video for the first single from the album, 'I Am Haunted' was premiered on Pitchfork on Friday. Watch it here.
The Ghost Of Piramida follows Efterklang on their 9-day audio expedition to the ghost town Piramida on Spitsbergen while the band were recording their latest album. The film premiered in November in Amsterdam at the world's biggest documentary film festival IDFA, and here the film was selected as one of the top three music films of the year. Since then, the film has been screened at several other film festivals and in art house cinemas around Europe.
Now Efterklang and the film's director, Andreas Koefoed are inviting people to host their own screenings of The Ghost of Piramida from February 8th until March 24th.
