A Taste of A Winged Victory

One track from the duo's forthcoming Iris soundtrack album

Update: The full audio is up at Spotify. You can listen there.

It’s just one track for now, but it will grow 18-fold by early next year — it’ll flower, just as the one track’s opening moments, mere distant piano notes, unfold into a dense and rapturous mix of mechanized static and soaring synthesizer drones. The track is “Galerie,” and it’s the sole one to appear thus far of the eventual 18 tracks that comprise Iris. The album is the score to Jalil Lespert’s film Iris, which seems, judging by the heavy-breathing trailer, to be a sexually charged thriller. A Winged Victory for the Sullen is Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie (half of Stars of the Lid and half of the Dead Texan) and Dustin O’Halloran, who teamed with Francesco Donadello and a 40-piece orchestra for the recording.
