Efterklang - 'Lyset EP'
Efterklang : 'Lyset EP'
4th December 2019

Today, Efterklang release Lyset, a four-track EP. A companion record to Altid Sammen – the Danish trio’s fifth studio album released in September – it includes a new song and is available digitally, on cassette tape and as a limited socks edition with download code. 

Lyset was recorded in Copenhagen on 16th September 2019 and its title track (meaning ‘The Light’) is a new song co-written with Swedish artist sir Was. The rest of the EP 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).

Lyset is out today. The cassette and socks will be sold exclusively via Efterklang’s webstore
