Les Revenants


Les Revenants (“the ghosts”) may be the soundtrack to the unsettling zombie drama that was made for the French TV channel Canal Plus, but this is no bloody sonic assault; indeed, it’s less tempestuous than you’d expect from Stuart Braithwaite’s band. Full of restrained terror, ominous drums and cascading piano, it conjures mental images of mists and mountains, and is by turns haunting and heavenly.
