Phoenix on Somewhere's soundtrack

In a recent blog post for BBC Radio, the members of the French band Phoenix talked to Greg Cochane about their rise to fame and scoring the music for Sofia Coppola's new film Somewhere (out soon from Focus Features). Band member Thomas May (who is also Coppola's long-term boyfriend) says of the score:

It's very minimal...It's almost like sound design. It wasn't like writing songs, it was more about trying to make a sound that fits with a Ferrari and the city of Los Angeles's theme. It was more of an engineer work than a composer.
