The best kept secret in music

Press


"Sultry sounds of the silver screen return with Cinephile's new limited edition Comatose EP. The Glasgow-based production duo's sound is deep, personal and considered yet accessible. Comatose has the passion and arrangement style of massive attack but is also reminiscent of early Pussyfoot (from the likes of Space) and Mo Wax (c.f. Attica Blues or even Palm Skin Productions). The live track demonstrates that this band can represent just as well live as in the studio. Blowback is a moody, mainly instrumental, soundscape and Somewhere Nowhere a beautiful, subtle song which begins gently and winds up in a frenzy. Easily their best work to date." - Dougal Perman, Programme Director, Radio Magnetic

Bio

Cinephile's sound is derived from and inspired by the atmosphere created on the silver screen. Their music has been described as "the soundtrack to a film which doesn't exist", the eerie sonic reflection of a visual medium.

Yet, what makes Cinephile different from their peers is not only the dramatic, tragic, seductive, haunting vocals or the unique production dynamic of the music and compositions, but the level of interaction that the overall output creates in the audience's collective psyche.

Cinephile see their compositions as a means of getting away from just writing music. They are inspired by the thought that their work generates an atmosphere and depth of feeling that instills something beyond visual interpretation, appearing differently to each individual listener.

Music, melody, vocals, samples, incidental parts, all merge together and evolve unplanned. Cinephile construct, deconstruct, reconstruct, feeling out the interaction between the sounds, creating a fluid mix, building it in layers until the final composition couldn't be further from it's origin.

Film would be nothing without music; music is everything without film. Cinephile's sound is an audio storyboard with faceless actors - it's music for the ears, the eyes, and the mind.
