100 years of archive footages manipulated to create a playful journey through history, time and pop culture filled with many famous guests such as Hitchcock, John F. Kennedy, The Beatles, Neil Armstrong, Bruce Lee, Maradona, Pacman... From the first Lumiere bros. movie ever shot to the GoPro sent in space for the Stratos Jump, it can also be seen as a tribute to this powerful media that is video, enhancing our eyes and making us direct witnesses of our world.
The introduction of SURVIVE's work to the cinematic medium fits quite naturally given the attention to theme and the profound level of detail and depth poured over every stage of their composition and recording process. Group Film One (UK) discovered "Hourglass" in Adam Wingard's movie, "The Guest". Enamored with the track, the collective immediately went into production immersed in the idea around intimacy, desperation and confinement.
On SURVIVE's debut their dedicated and comprehensive approach to sonic-arrangement is the result of the band's uncompromising standards of quality spread across hundreds of hours in their own Omniverse Studios integrating a vast collection of both antique and modern synthesizers. Their highly anticipated debut keeps the middle path between reserved minimalism and gorgeously lucid melodic structures.
