Apples is the second song on Efterklang´s 4th album Piramida. Released September 24th 2012 on 4AD and Rumraket.
The music video for Apples is created and directed by Hvass&Hannibal in collaboration with Oodls (Jakob Jakob Steen & Christoffer Frandsen). This is the first time ever that Mads, Casper and Rasmus of Efterklang make an appearance in an Efterklang music video.
Besides the newly filmed material, the video features shots from Andreas Koefoeds documentation of the band's trip to Piramida on Spitsbergen in August 2011.
As previously revealed (http://youtu.be/uiKK7ehFYtA), last summer Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg visited Piramida, an abandoned mining settlement located on Spitsbergen, just 1,000km from the North Pole. Nine days of exploring later, and the band had collected over 1,000 sound recordings and inspiration for the album they would subsequently write and record in Berlin.
Apples feature contributions from Earl Harvin (drums, Tindersticks) and the brass players from Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra.
