Berlin Boys

Tatu Rönkkö killed Efterklang! R.I.P. The best and most beautiful Danish band, recently and for a long time, is history. And we can put the blame on that Finn, whose name is so spectacular it makes you want to dance it. Because: when Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg, aka Efterklang, met the charming percussionist and decided to make music together, they realised that it sounded awesome, but definitely went beyond the musical scope of their band. This was no longer Efterklang, this was more. And so the trio gone quartet gave the musical child a new name – a finish one, mind you. Liima means glue and that fits quite well, doesn’t it? One and one is one! Their first album, released on March 18th, came into being in a most spectacular way. The four young men went on tour with light luggage – synthesizer, drum-samples, vocals, effect pedal and bass guitar – for exactly one week each in Finland, Berlin, Istanbul and Madeira. Each stay inspired and impacted with different moods, sounds and vibrations, countless samples and field recordings were captured. The band produced song drafts in a totally new creative dynamic, collected ideas and sounds and let them peak in a closing concert at the end of the week. Later on, they actually recorded the complete album live in just three days. Where? In Berlin, of course, the playground for creative border-pushing and testing the new. Because this where they all live, have been for years. This is where they met and this is where they will be playing tomorrow, a scorching home match in the Berghain. And because we urgently want to share this experience with you, we’re giving away a space for two on the guest list to the particularly scandophile amongst you. Send an email headlining ‚Tatu Tadaa?‘ to Normal tickets can be bought for a remarkable skinny price of 18 Euro here. Bye bye, best and most beautiful Danish band, recently and for a long time, and hello, you wonderful new band from here and the neighbourhood! More Berlin is just not possible. And who knows, maybe soon everything will be new again and therefore remain the same. Hej fremtid!
