'Music from Before the Storm

We’re so happy to introduce you to ‘Music From Before The Storm’.

At the end of 2016, we were invited to write the score for the new Life Is Strange video game, ‘Life is Strange: Before The Storm’. We’ve always loved the idea of mixing our music with picture and we were thrilled to be given the opportunity to make our very first original soundtrack!

We felt very moved by the story from the outset, it is such a heartfelt game and an honest portrayal of real life. Writing for the game allowed us to draw inspiration from the characters’ situations (… and re-living some of our own memories) to find a place where our music could live within the story!

As well as being heard within the game, the soundtrack is going to be released 1st September, You can listen to one of the songs “Burn It Down” .

So much love,
Elena Igor & Remi xxx
