The trio are soundtracking a new video game called ‘Life Is Strange: Before The Storm’, and the soundtrack - ‘Music From Before The Storm’ - will be released digitally on 1st September.
The album will contain 13 new pieces of music from Elena, Igor and Remi, and the first of those, single ‘Burn It Down’, is streaming now.
The only piece in the soundtrack to contain vocals, ‘Burn It Down’ largely follows on from where ‘Not To Disappear’ left off, with Elena’s frosty vocals set above waves of reverb. There’s an intensity and loudness to the track that the band have rarely previously achieved though, and it’s infectious.
