Efterklang have shared a new song and video from their forthcoming fifth studio album Altid Sammen, the trio’s first release in their native Danish.
Entitled ‘I dine øjne’, meaning ‘In your eyes’, the song is something of an outlier on Altid Sammen, embodying a different persona to its album siblings. It strikes a starker tone with its strident bass line and urgent synth arpeggio, intersected with the cool instrumentals of the Baroque ensemble B.O.X.
The companion video reunites Efterklang with director Andreas Koefoed, cinematographer Adam Jandrup and model/photographer Helena Christensen – the same team behind the visuals for first single ‘Vi er uendelig’. As with its predecessor, ‘I dine øjne’ brings Christensen and Efterklang vocalist Casper Clausen together on-screen in a hushed sensual and enigmatic video, this time exploring a darker atmosphere with striking close-up of the band and Christensen’s eyes.
Lyricist Casper Clausen explains ‘I dine øjne’ is “about peepholes to a fantasy, in the eyes of a person you just met in a brief encounter. It’s definitely driven by desire and lust, but also that feeling of loss when you wake up, alone with yourself again.”
