Archive announce details of their most ambitious project to date, a forty minute short film and accompanying album set for release on CD, vinyl, download, DVD and in cinemas on May 2014.
The South London collective finished recording the AXIOM album earlier this year and immediately set about working on the accompanying film with Spanish film collective NYSU.
Speaking about the project Archive founding member Darius Keeler said “It’s something we’ve always harbored ambitions to do, pull together our music and the film-making process. Every time we make an album somebody says it sounds like the soundtrack to a movie that hasn’t been made, well this time we decided to make the movie”.
Talking about the film, NYSU director Jesus Hernandez added “Archive has produced a great album that works like an entire movie script, we saw our role as composers of a kind of visual soundtrack for the music. Our challenge was to translate the band’s script into images, it’s the most exciting project we’ve ever been involved with.”
