Athenian avant-garde four-piece FILM are currently recording a single with Hildur Stefánsdóttir, the soothing voice of Rökkurró, Iceland’s finest folk-pop outfit.
"Harmur Fuglsins" (Sorrow of the Bird) is the arresting outcome of a collaboration infused by the strikingly contrasting geographical and artistic backgrounds of its creators that will be released in September on the Icelandic Kimi Records Label. Subsequently the band will perform on 8-10 September in Berlin @ the international music trade fair Popkomm, followed by a common appearance with Hildur @ Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavík on 13-17. October.
FILM’s compelling cinematic soundscapes revolve around nihilistic urban settings and inspire celluloid fantasies. Their work, as it morphs into a nebulous dark-wave amalgamation of post-punk and electronic facets, resembles the mystique of a lost, enigmatic motion picture. Their flickering sequences, sombre sonic textures, distorted outbreaks and the angelic vocal touches draw inspiration directly from the iconic legacy of FILM’s universally-acclaimed compatriot Vangelis.
FILM enjoy a leading status amongst the Athenian indie scene and have enviable live credits with support slots for behemoths such as The Cure, New Order, Iggy & the Stooges, and The Flaming Lips.
