What modern rock band do you think would be asked to compose a new score for the 1902 silent film Le Voyage Dans La Lune (a trip to the moon) by Frenchman Georges Méliès? No dude, it's not Metallica. It's AIR.
The Moon Safari duo are back. They've got a full-length album that evolved from the project, which is due out in February. AIR made one of the best film themes of the '90s, or maybe all time? 'Playground Love'. So here's hoping they 'score' as well again, heh heh.
Head to AIR's website for more info and to buy the lead single. Make sure to look out for the fully-restored 'Le Voyage Dans La Lune' currently playing at film festivals all across Planet Earth.
