White Hills have made a video for “I Write a Thousand Letters” from Frying On This Rock. The video was shot at The Womb Gallery in Oklahoma City, and was directed by Delo Creative, best known for their work with The Flaming Lips.
Written and directed by Jim Jarmusch, Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin.
Against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers, an underground musician (Tom Hiddleston), deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover (Tilda Swinton). Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon interrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister (Mia Wasikowska). Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
Producers are Jeremy Thomas at Recorded Picture Company, and Reinhard Brundig at Pandora Film. International sales are being handled by HanWay Films.
Thrill Jockey recording artists White Hills play themselves in a live concert scene set in a Detroit Rock Club. The band spent a week in Hamburg, Germany shooting the scene, which includes Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin, this past July. The song featured in the film is Under Skin Or By Name from the album Glitter Glamour Atrocity.
The band first worked with Jarmusch at the ATP festival in Monticello, NY September 2010 when he asked them to perform at the festival he was curating alongside The Stooges, Boris, Sonic Youth and Sunn O))).
White Hills will embark on a European Tour beginning at the end of September 2012 which will take them to Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, France, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Croatia, Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
Only Lovers Left Alive is slated to premiere in 2013.
