With Aardman’s Early Man hitting our screens this weekend we had the pleasure of sitting down with the up and coming British pop outfit New Hope Club, who have provided the soundtrack to this genial family comedy.
Their songs are titled Good Day and Tiger Feet – and captures the tone of this entertaining production. We discussed with the boys how they came to be involved in this project, and how they utilised the tone of the film into their sound. Given the themes of film we also discuss football briefly, while asking about their own future as musicians, and their inspirations from within the industry.
They go on to talk about how important it is for their identity they write their own music, and what it is they love about Early Man as a film. Then we end on a quickfire round…
Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of Dug, along with sidekick Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy Lord Nooth and his Bronze Age City to save their home.
Early Man is released in cinemas across the UK on January 26th.
