Clint Mansell - Happy New Year, Colin Burstead: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
LP - The vinyl is housed in a deluxe spined sleeve complete with double sided printed inner bag and digital download card included. The score is pressed on ‘Off White’ coloured vinyl.
Acclaimed contemporary film composer Clint Mansell returns to score Ben Wheatley’s brand new film Happy New Year, Colin Burstead. 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.
