Alt-J

Mercury Prize-taking pop mathletes Alt-J have been asked to compose the soundtrack to a new film titled ‘Leave To Remain’, and it looks like they’ve said ‘yes’.

Its official synopsis page says the film is “a provocative and gripping ‘coming of age’ drama about young people cut loose from society because they live in the UK as asylum seekers”.

Its maker Bruce Goodison, who directed 2011′s controversial ‘Bin Laden: Shoot To Kill’, says of the band: “I was immediately charmed by the soulful nature of their music. It felt like the perfect accompaniment to the emotional journey of my characters”.
