Video: A Winged Victory for the Sullen - A requiem for the static king part one

As if you are listening to the soundtrack of a very compelling movie. The sound of the new 'A Winged Victory for the Sullen' sucks you right into the middle of emotions and action within an invisible event. It it is not only gloomy, but cheerful at the same time.

The self titled album is this duo's debut, which features Stars of the Lid member Adam Wiltzie and composer Dustin O╩╝Halloran. It has been recorded in large acoustic spaces on traditional instruments, with guest appearances of cellist Hildur Gudnadottir and violinist Peter Broderick. The track "Requiem for the Static King Part One" is in memory of Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous. You can watch a promo video of that song here.

Stream the album on the 3voor12 Luisterpaal or listen to sneak previews at the band's Facebook page.

A Winged Victory for the Sullen will be performing at Le Guess Who? 2011 on Saturday November 26th
. Passepartout and day tickets are available via http://www.leguesswho.nl/
