An Island by Efterklang & Vincent Moon!


I've been excited about this since first hearing about it last year. Take Efterklang, one of my favourite bands and probably the best live band I saw last year, combine with Vincent Moon, the brains behind La Blogoteque, put them on an island in Denmark for 4 days and the results will surely be spectacular. Not in a show off flashy kind of way but in finding beauty and harmony in the everyday and this case the not so everyday.

The premis for the project was to record an album lenghts worth of videos with musical collaborations with 200 friends on the island, based around Efterklangs last album Magic Chairs! But also Vincent Moon is conducting his own experiments with the video side of things along with the music and has woven everything together to make the final document, An Island! The film will be screened before some of their up and coming European tour dates, the closest one to me is at Glasgow's Oran Mor on the 24th February, you also get to see Efterklang performing live too! Beautiful to see these kind of collaborations happening!
