Life in Film are London four-piece Samuel Fry, Micky Osment, Edward Ibbotson and Dominic Sennétt.
The band released their debut EP on August 20th with lead track "Needles & Pins" available as a free download.
The EP contains five tracks, "Needles & Pins," "Suitcase," "Carla," "Until It's Over" and "Lose Control". These were all recorded with legendary UK producer Stephen Street after he heard some of the band's early demos. From there he committed to full album production duties.

The band's singer Samuel Fry on 'Needles & Pins':
"It's a song about lost love. I guess that's pretty explicit in the lyrics. Musically though I guess it worked its way into something quite expansive - once we had a nice groove going on it was possible for us to keep it quite spacious, with guitar and bass details coming in and out. It all came together quite naturally from a basic idea which we gradually developed. We treated each tune in isolation and tried to find the musical context which fits it best. In the studio we tried to capture a natural sound, and I think this comes across on the EP and gels it together well."
The band caught the attention of Burberry's creative director Christopher Bailey last year after seeing Samuel, Dominic, Edward and Micky playing an unplugged session on youtube, he immediately enlisted the boys to record a spot for his Burberry Acoustic series.
