Seven years after Piramida, Danish band Efterklang (Casper Clausen, Mads Christian Brauer, Rasmus Stolberg) released a new album titled Altid Sammen, out via 4AD. Now they’re back with a new EP titled Lyset. It consists of reworked Altid Sammen tracks, including the single ‘Vi er uendelig’. Lyset features contributions from the South Denmark Girls Choir (70-strong choir based in the trio’s home-town of Sønderborg who also featured on their previous album Piramida) and Efterklang live members Simon Toldam (piano) and Øyunn (drums and vocals).
Casper Clausen explains “‘Lyset’ means the light, it’s an homage to the light where we all grow, the light that we keep reaching for over and over again. It’s the light that I forget sometimes, when I’m in the shadow for too long. The song is a reminder that it’s a place that exists, beyond the clouds, and it burns but it’s full of life.”
