Behind The Curve, a Flat-Earther documentary on Netflix, used Real Estate's "Horizon" song without their approval.
Over the weekend Real Estate expressed their thoughts on their Atlas album track "Horizon" being used in Daniel J. Clark’s Behind The Curve documentary. The band wrote, "I do think it’s a pretty funny recontextualization to use our song "Horizon" in a doc about flat earthers".
They added, "no one in the band approved it".
Haven’t seen the movie yet. Found out about our song being in it last night from a friend, and while I do think it’s a pretty funny recontextualization to use our song Horizon in a doc about flat earthers, no one in the band approved it.— Real Estate, band (@realestateband) February 23, 2019
According to Pitchfork, the credits list the song as having been licensed by Domino. One of the documentary producers explained to Pitchfork, "the song was licensed from Domino Recording Co. and Domino Publishing Co., who own 100% of the master rights and publishing rights (respectively)."
