In 2013 the pair contributed to the Blanck Mass-curated score for the Belgian horror movie 'The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears', while last year they composed part of the score and end credit theme for the SKY / Warp Films-produced drama series 'The Last Panthers'. The duo have performed live at Sonar, Unsound, Primavera, ATP, Mutek, Norberg, Roskilde and Semibreve festivals as well as alongside an exclusive orchestral setting at Norrlands Opera.
Compared to the epic, sweeping compositions of the duo's earlier records, Born To Ruin is stripped to the bone, a collection of concise, sharply evocative, jazz-infused music that's more smoky basement than orchestral hall. Following the stately orchestral explorations of 2014's Until Silence, the music here is lithe, hollow and furious, evoking a fractured world of economic and political instability.
