When to of contemporary music’s most creative artists team up for a collaboration it’s always something quite fascinating. So, when NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION heard that electronic and movie score mastermind JON HOPKINS teamed up with BAT FOR LASHES‘ Natasha Khan for a new song our hearts literally skipped a beat. And then we heard their song Garden’s Heart and we were already lost. Beauty within each and every note.
The heart-wrenching Garden’s Heart is taken from HOPKINS‘ latest movie score for How I Live Now. The upcoming drama by director Kevin Macdonald deals with a love story in times of an ongoing third world war in the not so far future. Quite dystopian stuff and the perfect scenario for Khan to sing a bittersweet love song over the simplistic score. A song to embrace us in these dark times. And today’s sound of the night.
