Alex Somers & Sigur Rós – Black Mirror: Hang The DJ (Music From The Netflix Original Series)
Out of stock
Late last year Sigur Rós producer and frequent collaborator Alex Somers hooked up with the band once again to deliver original music for ‘Hang The DJ’, one of the flagship episodes of the most recent ‘Black Mirror’ series. Now his acclaimed score for the Netflix programme, as well as two new songs made in collaboration with Sigur Rós for the programme, is being released on CD and vinyl by Invada Records. Somers composed the ‘Black Mirror’ episode on the back of recent scores for the silent movie archive epic ‘Dawson City: Frozen Time’ and Viggo Mortensen vehicle ‘Captain Fantastic’, both of which have drawn wide praise. He also collaborated with Sigur Rós mainman and partner Jónsi on the music for the US TV atomic bomb drama ‘Manhattan’. Previously, in their Jónsi & Alex guise, the pair made the much-loved ambient masterpiece ‘Riceboy Sleeps’ in 2009, with Somers going on to co-produce Sigur Rós’s 2012 and 2013 albums ‘Valtari’ and ‘Kveikur’. The LP is pressed on white coloured vinyl and housed in a spined sleeve.
