A Look at Trailer for Sofia Coppola's Somewhere x Phoenix on its SoundtrackJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 14 Jul 2010
Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars announced the band produced a "very minimal" soundtrack for his girlfriend Sofia Coppola's upcoming film.
When asked about the Somewhere score we learn, “She asked us to do some music, very in the spirit of Love Like a Sunset, so we tried to put that track and elements of the track in the movie, and it worked well," Phoenix guitarist Christian Mazzalai said. "And then we wrote very small pieces of music, very minimal music for the movie too. ... We're very proud of it."
"This is the first time we feel [that] the music fits to the picture," bassist Deck D'Arcy added. "We've [been on] many soundtracks before, and it's always weird for us — producers must like our songs, of course it if they use them — but for us, it's always weird to see them in the films."
"It was like in Lost in Translation, when they used our song in a scene, it's funny, but it's weird for us," Mazzalai laughed. "We didn't believe it. So this is the first time we feel like the images match the music. But we still don't believe it."
