In short, it's going to be a mob scene. "They expect thousands of people. It's going to be interesting," says Alex Brown Church, who records as Sea Wolf. Church's song, 'The Violet Hour,' is featured on the recently released movie soundtrack alongside impressive indie artists like Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Death Cab For Cutie and Grizzly Bear. The moody melodic song wasn't written especially for the film -- it was actually recorded during summer 2008, when Church was creating his second album, the September-released 'White Water, White Bloom.' "It was really an extra song. I didn't want to put it on the record," he says. "It was a bit more of a pop song. It didn't fit the vibe I wanted for this record. But it's a totally cool song for a movie ... like 'Twilight.'"
Actually, 'New Moon' wasn't the first movie home Church tried to find for 'Violet Hour.' It was originally aimed at 'Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist,' but didn't make the final cut. Given the massive exposure 'Twilight' will bring Sea Wolf, it was for the best. "I would like to have as many people as possible like our music," Church says. "I'm not going to do anything different, but I hope 'Twilight' takes us to the next level."
