Gruff Rhys Releases New Tracks “Layer Upon Layer” and “Orea” from Upcoming Soundtrack Album “The Almond and The Seahorse”
January 24, 2023
Two new songs from the soundtrack made by Gruff Rhys for the film “The Almond and The Seahorse” are out today.
Listen here to “Layer Upon Layer” and “Orea”
In Gruff’s words “Layer Upon Layer is a song I wrote for the opening titles of the film (The Almond & the Seahorse) – I wrote it to a specific tempo that goes with Rebel Wilson’s bike ride through Liverpool and her ferry journey to the Wirral – so it’s something I’d have never written in any other context – and a great excuse to record a shiny 3 minute power-pop song.“
The 22-track album is set for release on the 24th of February. It comprises original songs and instrumental score, all composed by Gruff Rhys. Recorded between 2021-2022 with a host of featured musicians including members of the National Orchestra of Wales, the music features throughout the forthcoming film of the same name, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rebel Wilson and Celyn Jones.
