County Lines - Mark Kermode's Film of Week!
“...a mournfully ambient and somewhat ethereal score by James Pickering helps elevate this above mere social realism, finding unexpected shards of beauty in even the most dismal circumstances.” - Mark Kermode
LOVELY INTERVIEW WITH GEMMA DEMPSEY ON SOHO RADIO!
PRE-ORDERS NOW AVAILABLE!
James Pickering composes, produces, writes songs and gets his inspiration from his mashup of musical experiences.
These include being signed as a songwriter and guitarist in a shoegaze band in 2000, working as a Film and TV composer over the past eight years (BBC “...a real talent...his ideas are fantastic.”) and his involvement in the London Symphony Orchestra’s Soundhub scheme for new and emerging composers: a place for his ‘contemporary’ concert music and a great inspiration for his electronic and sample-based music.
These last two styles comprise a sound world which features heavily in Henry Blake’s new film, ‘County Lines’. The soundtrack will be released by Lakeshore Records alongside the film’s release.
