"We love Vincent Moon and we love working with him," Efterklang's Rasmus Stolberg tells Spinner, adding "the only drug we have seen him using is Nutella -- he simply loves Nutella."
Having worked with the director on a series of projects, including their new flick 'An Island,' Stolberg and his bandmates can appreciate why Moon's artistic style might be off-putting to some, but don't hesitate to call him a "genius."
"I can easily imagine why some people might find him difficult to work with. He has a very strong character and an uncompromising vision of how he wants to make his art and also how he wants to share this art with the world (which is for free)," says Stolberg.
"Every project has been incredible and we always come out on the other side with new inspiration and a feeling that we have found something new in our music. He is sweet and intelligent, and we believe he is a genius on the same level as the many brilliant musicians he has portrayed over the years."
Stolberg declined to comment directly on the Arcade Fire controversy, which erupted after Moon unloaded on the Grammy- and Juno-nominated band after working with them on the 2008 film 'Mirror Noir,' which documented the making of their hit album 'Neon Bible' and subsequent tour.
There has been no confirmation of the accusations purportedly made by Arcade Fire's management ("Can we get the camera equipment you stole from the band returned yet?") nor is there any news about that stolen basketball Arcade Fire's frontman allegedly made off with back in 2007.
