We Stood Like Kings plays ‘Away’

LV 2019, 1h15
Direction: Gints Zilbalodis
Animationfilm with live soundtrack
no dialogues


A few years back, “We stood Like Kings” made a new soundtrack by Koyaanisqatsi and played it live to a packed house. Earlier this year, they were in residence at arts centre BUDA to create a new soundtrack to the wordless animated film Away.

A paratrooper lands on an island and sets out on an abandoned motorbike in search of civilisation. On his journey through a beautiful landscape, he is followed by a tiny sparrow and by a terrifying monster he just cannot shake off. A dreamy ramble full of poetry in its simplicity. The Latvian filmmaker made this beautiful film all by himself. We Stood Like Kings was given permission to feature a new soundtrack and comes to perform it live.

We Stood Like Kings is a formation that smoothly mixes neo-classical with compelling post-rock. For fans of Chopin to Mogwai alike. Highly unique and intoxicatingly beautiful!
