British Sea Power announce ‘Man Of Aran’ release

1934 movie to be released with band’s new soundtrack on May 5

British Sea Power have announced the release of the soundtrack for the 1934 movie ‘Man Of Aran’.

The film is being re-released on DVD with the new soundtrack, and will see the band perform the soundtrack live to the film at BFI Southbank on 23 April.

The package includes two discs – the re-scored ‘Man Of Aran’ DVD, plus the soundtrack by itself on CD.

The movie was shot in the Aran Islands on the West Coast of Ireland, and BSP guitarist Martin Noble compares the fisherman’s costumes to a “1930s Irish version of Jack White or Kraftwerk.”

The film won the Grand Prix at the 1935 Venice Film Festival.

The CD/DVD will be released on May 5.
