The Black Heart Rebellion “AGWHAN” Video Premiere

I love when creative beings are driven by their passions past all musical boundaries! This is exactly what is taking place with the new project from The Black Heart Rebellion. Their new project finds them creating an alternative sound track for the Iranian Vampire movie A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, and there are plans to release it on vinyl some time this year. The visual we are premiering below is haunting, striking and moving.

Here is even more of the back story about this radical projects from one of our favorite bands (The Black Heart Rebellion RULES!!!):

TBHR was approached by Belgian movie festival MOOOV(which specializes in world cinema) in collaboration with Cactus and Het Entrepot to record an alternative soundtrack to a movie. A Girl Walks Home Alone At night grabbed the attention of the band because of the juxtaposition as mentioned before: an Iranian director taking on a traditionally western Genre, and their long interest in eastern music styles and culture in general.

They are using the project as an exercise to break loose from traditional song structures and previous ideas and use completely fresh approach to the creation process. Because of the fact the actors are talking in Farsi, Pieter is using his vocals purely as an instrument and is singing in a made up language so not to distract/confuse the audience and make sure the soundtrack contributed to the overall vibe presented by the movie. The project is a logical step in the path of TBHR, as they’ve mentioned before that movies have been an important influence on previous records, and they see the albums as soundtracks to non-existant movies.
