Grizzly Bear, who are just about as all-over-the-place as Thom Yorke these days, join the Radiohead-head and some other indie luminaries on the OST to the Twilght sequel. But you read the internet, so you already knew that. What’s eluded laptops, though, is a glimpse greater than 80 seconds of the band’s soundtrack collab with Beach House’s Victoria LeGrand, titled “Slow Life.”
As it happens the two acts are on tour together, so it looks like “Slow Life” has become a nightly setlist fixture, here captured in full from last night’s stop in Columbia, MO. The song itself is nothing like the last time Ed and Vic shared vocal duties, instead a perfect Grizzly House sort of mesh: the pair trading verse and chorus vocals, harmonizing over an intimate then cascading song that sounds like lovesick nights and shooting stars. No wonder the vampires bit. Watch and listen:
The Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack is out 10/20 via Atlantic.
