Hanan Townshend might be best known at the moment for his work with Terrence Malick. He contributed material to “The Tree Of Life,” before being promoted to the main gig of scoring the director’s “To The Wonder,” his upcoming “Knight Of Cups,” as well as the Malick-produced “The Better Angels.” That certainly opened some doors for Townshend, who scored the upcoming wartime drama “Echoes Of War,” and today we have exclusive preview of three tunes from the soundtrack.
James Badge Dale, Maika Monroe, Ethan Embry, and William Forsythe star in the Kane Senes-written and directed movie that follows a soldier who returns home to Texas haunted by the Civil War, only to spark up a conflict between his family and a cattle rancher neighbor. Across the three tracks below is more evidence of Townshend’s ability to craft and sustain mood with an approach that seems deceptively simple, but is definitely the result of careful writing.
The album is available now for pre-order on Amazon and will be released physically and digitally on May 15th, the day “Echoes Of War” lands in cinemas and on VOD. Listen below.
