The folks over at Pattinson Post were able to get an interview with Imperial Mammoth about their song “Requiem on Water” being included on the soundtrack for the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and their life since the soundtrack came out! Here’s an excerpt:
Pattinson Post: When did you first know where in the movie your song played?
Imperial Mammoth: Literally, as it started playing in the Nokia Theater! We went in thinking Requiem On Water would be used in a romantic context, and were amazed to see where it ended up — on Bella as she looks in the mirror and realizes she loves her unborn child. We were beaming through the whole thing. After the screening, as the credits ended, Bill Condon happened to walk down our row to exit and we were able to give him a hug and thank him. We really couldn’t have wished a better moment for the song.
PP: You recently released your album, “Where Satellites Fall” and got married. How is it going?
IM: So far so good! It’s been a whirlwind these last few months. We wrote/recorded/released Where Satellites Fall over three weeks in October, got married in early November, got to a be a part of the Breaking Dawn premiere shortly after and then, set off on our honeymoon in Europe through December. We’ve finally now been able to catch our breath and soak it all in. We wouldn’t have changed a thing though. The great part about being in a time crunch, especially in the context of making a record, is that it takes away a lot of the inherent self-doubt and worrying that comes with putting yourself out there artistically. One song in particular, “Left Behind” was recorded and finished in six hours, right before we went to master, and it ended up being our favorite track on the EP*. We’re thrilled with the way the record came out, and that people seem to be responding to it.
