Stereophonics drummer and producer/songwriter Pop Morrison has teamed up with singer/songwriter Anna Wolf to compose and perform the title track to the new horror movie, “The Unfamiliar”.
The official video for the track can be seen below….
“The song sets a tone before you’ve even seen the film, the same way the movie leaves a mark after you’ve seen it”, says Pop Morrison aka Jamie Morrison.
Before writing the song for the film, the duo were sent a private link of “The Unfamiliar” to discuss the song’s direction with the film’s director and co-writer Henk Pretorius,.
He says the track they came up with…”dreamily conveys the dark lure of The Unfamiliar. I got emotional when I heard what they created.”
The music video for the single shows Anna Wolf and Pop Morrison performing, interspersed with clips from the film, appearing like spectral presences outside the narrative.
Pop Morrison’s production features screaming banshee guitar leads and hauntingly mixed reverberating backing vocals.
“The Unfamiliar” is an independent horror film, set in the UK and Hawaii, showcasing a melting pot of rising British, European and South African crew and cast members.
Directed by Henk Pretorius and produced by Llewelynn Greeff and Barend Kruger, the Anglo-French Jemima West (Indian Summer, The Mortal Instruments) stars as British Army doctor Elizabeth ‘Izzy’ Cormack.
She has returned from war to rekindle her relationship with her estranged family. Alarmed by the numerous inexplicable activities around the house, Izzy seeks ineffectual professional help before confiding in her husband.
He believes that she is going through PTSD and advises her to rest and recuperate in Hawaii. It’s there that she gets sucked into the underworld of Hawaiian mythology, as she attempts to piece together the elaborate and elegant puzzle to reveal an ancient and terrifying spiritual presence haunting her family.
- The single is released on 21st August 2020………
