As previously reported, Scottish post-rockers Mogwai recently shuffled into the studio to score the French TV zombie show Les Revenants. Before the record arrives in stores later next month, the group has shared the track titled, “Wizard Motor”. While other samples purveyed a sense of delicacy, this track’s warbly synth is the perfect soundtrack for a horde of geeks marching through some abandoned city.
“The remit given to us was very vague – which was ideal – but we were still working to instruction for the first time, which offered a new kind of limitation,” the band said in a statement. “As it was a TV series soundtrack too, there was more than four times the amount of screen time for us to put music to, had to be created in a short period of time.”
The soundtrack will be available on CD, LP, and digital formats February 25th through the band’s own Rock Action Records (snag your copy here).
