Efterklang : Efterklang Announce new single, 'I Was Playing Drums'
30th March 2010

Copenhagen outfit Efterklang explored a new realm with the release of Magic Chairs, the quartet's third album and first for 4AD. Eschewing the familiar territory of Tripper (2004) and Parades (2007) for something more deconstructed and melodious, Efterklang have delivered their most accessible album to date.

With an extensive European tour planned for April and May (UK and Irish dates below; a full list can be found here), Efterklang will release Magic Chairs highlight 'I Was Playing Drums' to coincide as a digital single and limited 7" on April 19th.

The Hvass&Hannibal-designed single will be backed with new track 'Me Me Me The Brick House'. Both songs feature on the 4AD Sessions, a special live performance filmed at the beautiful VEGA in Copenhagen. Filmed earlier this year, the footage sees the quartet in their expanded seven-piece live mode alongside Frederik Teige and siblings Peter and Heather Broderick performing 'I Was Playing Drums', 'Alike', 'Me Me Me The Brick House' and 'Modern Drift'.
