Mica Levi

Monos - Original Soundtrack


Released: 13th September 2019

Invada Records & Lakeshore Records will co-release
MONOS—Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, featuring original music
by Ivor Novello Award winner and Academy Award-nominated Mica
Levi (Jackie, Under the Skin).

Jaw-dropping work from one of contemporary music's must intriguing new masters. Her soundtrack work first came to our attention a few years back with her stunning score for Under The Skin, a relentlessly brooding and taut score of strings and drones.

The London-based composer, music producer and artist creates an
indescribably hallucinatory, often menacing backdrop to the
survivalist thriller set on a remote mountain in Latin America.

The score is pressed on 180g black vinyl, housed in a deluxe
heavyweight gatefold sleeve, with stunning artwork by Sander
Brouwer printed on reverse board. The record comes housed in a
double sided printed inner sleeve, and includes an extra thick printed
artwork insert and digital download card.

Says Landes: “Mica connected with and understood the spirit of the
film: the faces, the colors, the extremeness of the environment, the
mash of costumes, the absence of a specific time, place or date.
She's classically trained but can be equally as inspired by pop or
heavy metal; she can mix synthesizer-driven music with a quartet. All
this brings a very particular sensibility, a mixing of instruments, that
made for a distinct, emotional and atemporal sound.”
