Los Angeles’ noise-rock ensemble Health have recently released a cover of New Order’s iconic synth anthem ‘Blue Monday’, which will appear in a new Charlize Theron action film entitled ‘Atomic Blonde’.
Health’s cover of ‘Blue Monday’ displays their more ambient abilities but continues the track’s original utilisation of semi-electronic, hard-hitting drums and pulsating synth. It has been featured on the trailer for ‘Atomic Blonde’ which also contains Queen’s track ‘Killer Queen’, released 9 years earlier.
‘Atomic Blonde’, directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2, Logan), is based on the graphic novel ‘The Coldest City’ by Antony Johnston and Sam Hart. Agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is the sensual yet brutal spy, sent on a solo mission to Berlin to retrieve an invaluable dossier from the fragmented city.
