PJ Harvey is contributing music to new film ‘Dark River’, an upcoming thriller from director Clio Barnard (who’s also helmed ‘The Arbor’ and ‘The Selfish Giant’).
Now there’s a new trailer for the movie, and it features one of the tunes that Polly Jean has contributed. The song is intimate, as well as being folk-inflected, gradually building up as the trailer also reaches a climactic peak.
The film itself stars Ruth Wilson and Mark Stanley and is set in rural England. In it, a pair of estranged siblings are reunited after their father’s death, but their time is quickly marred by a dispute over inheritance.
PJ Harvey’s last released track was ‘The Camp’, a collaboration with Ramy Essam that raised awareness and support for the displaced children of Lebanon’s Bekaa Valey.
Hear the new track in the ‘Dark River’ trailer below.
