Efterklang launch ‘Efterkids’ project

The Danish fourpiece have announced the launch of, as part of their drive to raise awareness of the need for more music education in schools.

It is also hoped by the group that the project will unearth a spate of youthful talent for them to collaborate with in the future.

The site hosts various features, with perhaps the standout being the option for budding young performers to play along to stringless mp3s of the band’s hits, 'Natural Tune' and 'Full Moon'.

The group explained the motivation behind the project:

“Had it not been for encouraging music teachers in our public schools we would never have been where we are today. However, that's just one little positive outcome of music education in public schools. Several studies show that music education in schools has a major impact on kids. It fosters success in school life, social life and just life overall in fact.”
