One Way Static Records presents for the first time on vinyl Metropolis: An Original Re-Score by Metavari. Metavari is the stage name of Indiana-based electronic musician Nathaniel David Utesch and is best described as the intersection of nostalgic electronics, ambient soundscapes and off-kilter synth pop music. Musically it all plays out like a dream, filled with midnight joyrides in stunt cars from Miami Vice. Imagine Tangerine Dream's Edgar Froese at the wheel, David Lynch rummaging the glove compartment for matches and Phil Collins bound in the trunk.

It all fits on here: hints of Twin Peaks, John Carpenter, the reoccurring Metropolis themes in combination with sparse live drums, an alto saxophone, vocals and the sounds of a 1981 ARP Odyssey Mark III. The sweet electro-pop tunes could easily underscore the next Nicolas Winding Refn film. Also, did we mention the fantastic homage to Lindsey Buckingham's "Trouble"? 
The Metropolis re-score started as a cinema-commission and was performed alongside the film for a sold-out audience on Art House Theater Day 2016. Now it comes to vinyl for the first time gorgeously packaged as a double LP edition with gold-foiled jacket artwork and download.

• An original re-score for Fritz Lang's 1927 cinematic classic Metropolis
• Deluxe 2LP-set with gold foiled jacket
• Includes download card
