Listen to lead track ‘Crucible’ now.

Animal Collective have scored the upcoming A24 film The Inspection, set for release on 18th November, with original compositions by the band and features contributions from Indigo de Souza.

Sharing lead track ‘Crucible’, Avey Tare says, “I wanted us to conjure the feeling of being strong but also showing vulnerability. The desire to ask a community or a loved one to have your back and support you and the expectation that it will happen.”

“We were very inspired by the music of our composers Animal Collective,” director Elegance Bratton adds. “We wanted to create the right rhythms to blur the line between what French thinks is real and what is really happening. So those fantasy sequences could serve as the evolution of French’s inner life. In essence, we wanted to create a sense of the stir craziness of the monotony of boot camp, juxtaposed with the massive transformation Ellis French undergoes. Animal Collective provides the perfect backdrop to shrink and expand the time according to the emotion.”

For some, this might be too tame. An album full of ‘Bluish’ rather than ‘Fireworks’. But for others, that means it’s the most accessible.
