The music of Scottish post-rock titans Mogwai has always sounded like it would make a great horror movie soundtrack, and now the band is getting the chance to make good on that creepy, untapped potential. The group previously announced (via Consequence Of Sound) that they’d be providing the soundtrack to a French TV zombie show, Les Revenants. The album version of the soundtrack will be released in full via Rock Action Records, but today the band shared “Wizard Motor,” a sinister, post-apocalyptic slow-crawl of a track. Surprise: it’s pretty scary.
This isn’t the first time Mogwai has provided music for a film—they scored the futbol documentary Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait and collaborated on the music for Darren Aronofsky’s sci-fi opus The Fountain—but it is the band’s first television project and the first zombie-related work in the group’s catalog. Mogwai may fear Satan, but they apparently have no problem with zombies. Stream “Wizard Motor” and check out a commercial for Les Revenants, below
