Mogwai are using their blanketing atmospheres to score an upcoming sci-fi flick, Kin, and they’ve just shared a tune off the soundtrack.
“Donut” is everything you’d expect from the Scottish post-rock band: moody and grim, with multiple instruments building up to a euphoric wall of noise that comes crashing down again in denouement. Listening to this alone gets us hyped up for the James Franco-starring film, which is slated for release this August.
Mogwai are, of course, no stranger to film and TV scores. They’ve worked on Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain, the climate change documentary Before the Flood, and even a French documentary on the great soccer star, Zinedine Zidane.
