The Roman quintet is not new to orchestral escapades: they have written and recorded a song with legendary British composer Michael Nyman, the strings part of their most recent single "The God Below" is on the Clio Award-winning international TV spot for the blockbuster movie Minions, and an orchestral arrangement composed by their guitarist Dani Macchi is in the soundtrack of Michael Moore's new movie Where To Invade Next.
