They are now on Ninja Tune.
This stately and sometimes funereal music opens with Our Lord Debussy where sweeping slo-mo strings and dark piano chords set the tone for pieces with titles like Sullen Sonata, The Slow Descent Has Begun, A Minor Fifth is Made of Phantoms and Keep It Dark Deutschland.

These are deep immersion, cinematic pieces – they have done two soundtracks previously – and you can imagine anyone writing a screenplay set in the far north of Scandinavia or looking out on a bleak Icelandic landscape will have this on repeat.
