Mica Levi of Micachu & The Shapes has written and recorded the soundtrack for the science fiction film ‘Under The Skin’, directed by Jonathan Glazer and starring Scarlett Johansson. ‘Under The Skin’ is the story of an alien in human form. Part road movie, part science fiction, part real, it’s a film about seeing our world through alien eyes.
