We’ve had our ears on composer duo Fall On Your Sword for a while now. The duo have become some of the most in-demand musicians in the indie world over the last few years, thanks to the works on “Another Earth,” “Nobody Walks,” “Lola Versus” and “28 Hotel Rooms,” among others, and we named them as one of our 5 Composers On The Rise earlier this year.
Which means that we’re delighted to this morning be exclusively debuting a new track from the pair’s score to “We Steal Secrets: The Story Of Wikileaks,” the latest film Oscar-winning “Taxi To The Dark Side” director Alex Gibney. The film, which sees Gibney delve into the story of Julian Assange, and his principal source Bradley Manning, won rave reviews at Sundance, and is hitting theaters on Friday May 24th, while Fall On The Sword’s soundtrack is released the Tuesday before, on May 21st. If the track below, “First Release,” is anything to go by, it’s typically excellent stuff.
The soundtrack’s now available for pre-order on iTunes, and if the track below is indicative of the rest of the work, it sounds like it’ll be well worth picking up (and if the film’s trailer is anything to go by, that’ll be worth the price of a ticket too). Listen below, and you can see “We Steal Secrets: The Story Of Wikileaks” in theaters from Friday May 24th, with Fall On Your Sword’s soundtrack available from Tuesday May 21st.
