I just finished up shooting and am currently editing the video for “Life’s Upon You” from our latest album Walks For Motorists. Shot partially in super 8, the video is my homage to Manhattan, a place that generates more magic than most people realize.
From the WHITE HILLS 2015 album "Walks For Motorists" available from Thrill Jockey Records http://thrilljockey.com/thrill/White-Hills/Walks-For-Motorists#.Vb99rkVGUfp
Inspired by Mary Shelley's gothic horror story Frankenstein, No Will recounts the tale of a scientist obsessed with creating life. After countless nights of study and experimentation, he successfully animates a creature but finds that his gift is unwelcome. His creation turns on him in scorn and while fleeing her rage, he descends into madness .
Featuring music by WHITE HILLS
Coming to a theater near you!
WHITE HILLS appears in Jim Jarmusch’s newest film Only Lovers Left Alive starring Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin.
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them? Watch for White Hills performing at a Detroit club as the vampires hide behind their shades.
The film, which has already premiered in Europe, opens in the US on April 11th. A very special premiere screening in NYC on April 1st will start off at 7pm sharp with a screening of the film at the Sunshine Cinema, followed by live performances at Santos Party House where musicians from the film’s soundtrack – White Hills, Jozef Van Wissem, Yasmine Hamdan, Zola Jesus and Jim Jarmusch’s band SQÜRL – will all play live.

White Hills to appear in the new Jim Jarmusch film Only Lovers Left Alive
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?
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))).
Only Lovers Left Alive is slated to premiere in 2013. White Hills will be touring the U.S. throughout September, including two stops at the Hopscotch Festival and a headlining slot at the Thrill Jockey 20th Anniversary show in Brooklyn before touring Europe throughout late September and October.
