The first music act has been revealed for the upcoming Sundance London Film and Music Festival, now in its third year. The South London band Archive will perform live on opening night (April 25), followed by the world premiere of their film "Axiom."

The band finished their album "Axiom" earlier in 2013, and immediately got to work on the accompanying film with Spanish film collective NYSU. The film is set on Axiom, a remote isle surrounded by steeply falling-off cliffs. On the island, an underground city with a bell decides the fate of its inhabitants.

Sundance London typically cherry-picks international and UK premieres, as well as titles from Park City's Sundance. Lineup to come. The fest runs April 25-27.
