Efterklang have released a third single, ‘Uden ansigt’, from their forthcoming fifth studio album Altid Sammen, their first release in their native Danish. It’s out 20 September through 4AD.
Vocalist Casper Clausen explains the inspiration behind ‘Uden ansigt’ (‘Without face’): “The lyrics are like pictures to me, based on a moment I once had when biking in Copenhagen. It was raining heavily, everybody packed away under umbrellas, hoodies, hats etc. Faceless, genderless, ageless, colourless. My vision was blurred out and those bodies were moving through the street like faceless ghosts of a Japanese Anime movie, simultaneously haunted, alone and united at the same time.”
