their unreleased live score of ‘The Tenant’ reimagines the original soundtrack four decades on as a haunting instrumental; a foreboding piece of dark and cinematic avant-garde music that’s alienated, lonely and melancholic.

Moments of hallucination and delusion mirror the lead character Trelovsky. With the band at their most minimal, the accomplished musicians once again bring the dark narrative to life with their expansive and ethereal noir sound. the music recalls the eerie, haunted ambience of Angelo Badalamenti/Julee Cruise’s Twin Peaks soundtrack, Stereolab/Broadcast’s experimental vision of ‘50s lounge muzak/exotica and French ‘60s pop, or the narcotic country-noir of Mazzy Star. “The retro leaning Scandi duo fire up their Moogs and mellotrons, sonic archaeologists with a hauntological bent […] there is an alluring sexiness to their avant-Kraut Moog-pop excursions.” – Uncut.
