After the release of the CLASSICAL RE:WORKS project, on which We Stood Like Kings take a fresh look at classical music from the Baroque to the 20th century, the band goes back to
cinema with a new live soundtrack project dedicated to the recent silent 3D animation movie Away by the young Latvian director Gints Zilbalodis.
listen to the record:
The AWAY 2019 project is the daring meeting between We Stood Like Kings’ music – now refined, textural, then epic and intense: think Pink Floyd, Chopin and Mogwai all mixed-up – and Gints Zilbalodis’ first feature film, an exceptional cinematic effort picturing the journey of a young boy trying to get back home while being followed by a big black monster. On this new album sounding more post-rock than ever, We Stood Like Kings manages to render both the tense and risky atmosphere of the boy’s adventure and the emotional ups-and-downs he goes through on this precarious journey.
