I’ve seen Archive live loads of times, the most memorable for me being at The Zenith in Paris, I’ll never forget looking at the audience around me at the peak of that song and seeing loads of people crying, I've never seen that at a concert before - the emotion and performance that singer Dave Pen puts into it is breathtaking. Last time I saw them was at Alexandra Palace and again, at the peak of the song the audience were mesmerised by it.

This stripped down version, whole song is amazing but the part I’m talking about at 4m40s onwards....

Love Song for a Vampire by Annie Lennox is pretty haunting. Lovely heart beat throughout the track. From a great film too!

I discovered them last year by accident (backing tune to a rough sea footage on YT, of all things)

Yes, they are exactly as you describe

A lot of their music has a great cinematic feel to it - loved this use of Bullets in the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2tJ6P5POks

i got them by accident in 1999, i was into coldcut and next to coldcut on the cd rack was the debut album from cinematic orchestra... because it was on the same record label i bought it not knowing what to expect... i used to play it on loop whilst reading and it just permeated into my soul.. each release thereafter just got better....i had an agonising wait for their last album (13 year gap!!laugh).... but it was well worth the wait...

i can count on one hands the artists/bands i've stuck with right the way through but i'm pretty sure as long as cinematic orchestra make music i will buy it.

if you ever get a chance to see them live then take it...incredible...

I will, trust me.

Every evening, whilst noodling on the guitar, I'll - pretty much - always do their opening to "Build a Home"; it's cathartic. For anyone that's interested the chords are D/F# / A/E / Eadd9 / Bm / Dsus2 / A / E.

Whoever sings that song has an amazing voice. I used to work with a couple of the guys who play in the CO when I lived in Manchester.
