Explosions in the Sky Go Electro With ‘Join Me on My Avalanche’
New song is first full release from 'Prince Avalanche' soundtrack
Last month, Explosions in the Sky teased their upcoming score for Prince Avalanche, the new David Gordon Green film starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, with a time-lapsed video for atmospheric instrumental “Wading.” The post-rock Texans worked on the 15-song soundtrack with composer David Wingo (also of Austin’s Ola Podrida), who has previously teamed with Green on a number of movies, including 2011’s The Sitter, 2007’s Snow Angels, and 2000’s George Washington. Now, Wingo and Explosions in the Sky have shared “Join Me on My Avalanche,” a second sample of their impending score. The three-and-a-half-minute giant summons jittery electronic flourishes, wordless vocal harmonies, and earthy horns, all of which build to a dramatic crescendo (of course). Stream it below and scroll further for the trailer to Prince Avalanche.
The double-billed soundtrack arrives August 6 via Temporary Residence Ltd. (pre-orders now available on iTunes), and the film is due out August 9.
