The Monochrome Set feature in a new film soundtrack

Indie pop / post-punk pioneers The Monochrome Set feature in a new film soundtrack with their second-ever single ‘Eine Symphonie Des Grauens’, which first appeared on Rough Trade in 1979.

This artful, jangly guitar gem will appear in Govinda Van Maele’s new big screen, German language drama, Gutland, currently in production with Luxembourg-based company Les Film Fauves and described – somewhat enigmatically – as “a surreal village noir”.

Due for release later this year.
