A White Demon Love Song

A White Demon Love Song

Seeing as the second film in the Twilight Saga, New Moon, is out tomorrow, and the soundtrack is excellent, I thought the best way to ‘celebrate’ would be putting a brilliant track by the Killers from the OST up on here. Either that or buy one of these (NSFW), and I’ve run out of space in my fridge… and I’m not a sexually inhibited 17-year-oldĀ girl from Nebraska.

So, The Killers it is. White Demon Love Song is the first new track they have put out since the release of their third, and kinda disappointing, studio album Day & Age last year. It harks back to their second, more Americana-influenced album, Sam’s Town than the glitzier post-punk / new wave of Hot Fuss and Day & Age, and is all the better for it to my mind.

The rest of the OST is filled with a similar brand of indie and alternative music from artists like Death Cab For Cutie, Bon Iver & St Vincent, Grizzly Bear and Thom Yorke, as well as a really brilliant track Lykkie Li – an artist I had heard of but not heard before getting this.

So clearly, a photo of a vampire to go with the post was always going to be difficult. I’m not cool enough to hang out with them and they don’t show up on film anyway… right Stephanie? Christ knows, I thought they couldn’t go out in the day time but what do I know, I didn’t sell 70 million books… Again, going off topic – this is a hard post to write. Back to it, so I have no pics of Dracula, Nosferatu, Lestat or Edward (sorry 17-year-olds)for that matter, so I choose to go with something that mimicked the setting of the film and the theme of the song a little more with this chilly winters image, that though taken in rural Dorset mirrors Washington state in winter fairly well.

You can buy the soundtrack from Amazon here

Or download it from The Killers - The Twilight Saga: New Moon (Music From the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) [Deluxe Version]
