Archive to Perform, Preem Pic ‘Axiom’ at Sundance London

LONDON — The Sundance Institute has unveiled the first music act of the third edition of the Sundance London film and music festival, which runs April 25-27 at London’s O2 arena.

South London band Archive will perform live and DJ at The O2’s newest venue, Brooklyn Bowl, on the opening night of fest. The band will also present the world premiere of their film, “Axiom,” as well as participate in a post-screening Q&A. Tickets for the film and performance will go on sale Feb. 28.

Archive finished recording the “Axiom” album earlier this year and immediately began working on the accompanying film with Spanish film collective NYSU.

Archive founding member Darius Keeler said: “We’ve always harbored ambitions to bring together our music and the filmmaking process. Every time we make an album somebody says it sounds like the soundtrack to a movie that hasn’t been made, well this time we decided to make the movie.”

The film is set on Axiom, an island in the middle of nowhere with steep cliffs on all sides. On the island there is an underground city dominated by a bell, which decides the fate of the city’s inhabitants.

NYSU director Jesus Hernandez said: “Archive has produced a great album that works like an entire movie script. We saw our role as composers of a kind of visual soundtrack for the music. Our challenge was to translate the band’s script into images. It’s the most exciting project we’ve ever been involved with.”

Sundance London will host the international and U.K. premieres of American indie pics fresh from this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City, as well as live music performances, panels and events, all of which are selected by the Sundance Institute.
