With days until the release of their Vespertine score, This Will Destroy You have shared a series of four video teasers. The score was composed for chef Jordan Kahn’s two-Michelin-star restaurant of the same name and originally played exclusively at the physical location. The score will be released digitally and on CD June 9 with a vinyl release June 23.
The first single from the project, “Kitchen,” was released in 2017 with a picture flexi released for this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The score’s six tracks each soundtrack a different space encountered during an experience at Vespertine and The Waffle building it lives in.
The teasers show largely black-and-white images, many with optical illusion-like qualities. The sounds are fittingly atmospheric for This Will Destroy You, though more ambient in nature than the band’s best known post-rock.
