Acclaimed contemporary film composer Clint Mansell returns to score Ben Wheatley’s brand new film ‘Happy New Year, Colin Burstead’
This is the digipack CD.
Mansell’s score is a hypnotic and ethereal wash, built around organic instruments including insistent strings with a Celtic flavour and a brilliant use of woodwinds. The score slowly descends into something twisted and dissonant at points, beautifully laying a nod to Wheatley’s interest in folk horror. Toward the end, the score features ‘[exeunt]’, a beautiful piano piece reminiscent of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s ‘Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence’.
Clint Mansell is known for his work on Black Mirror: San Junipero, Moon, Pi, Requiem For a Dream, High Rise and many more.
Happy New Year, Colin Burstead will make its debut at the London Film Festival before publicly premiering on BBC2 this December.
