While fans continue to wait for a new Portishead album (or at least that ABBA “SOS” cover), the band’s Geoff Barrow has kept himself occupied with a handful of his own projects. In 2015 alone, he contributed to Run the Jewels’ Meow the Jewelsremix album; released a split EP under his Beak> project; and worked alongside Ben Salisbury on the soundtrack to Ex Machina.
For his latest venture, Barrow’s Beak> have provided the soundtrack to Couple in a Hole. Directed by Tom Greens, the upcoming British thriller follows a couple that’s decided to leave civilization and live in a cave in the woods.
“It was a total pleasure to work with Tom on his film,” Barrow said of the project, “And it’s also been great to have so many people support a film that is as unusual and uncompromising as this.”
The OST doesn’t hit stores until next month, but today Beak> has given us a preview with the droning, premonitory “Timeshare”. Stream it below.
