London duo Solomon Grey have just announced a headline show at St Pancras Church in London on 8th March 2018, alongside further UK dates.
The band have also recently released their cinematic soundtrack to the upcoming BBC1 drama series ‘The Last Post’. The highly acclaimed 6-part drama airs its final show this Sunday 5th November and has been created by Peter Moffat (Criminal Justice, Silk, Undercover) and stars Jessica Raine, Jessie Buckley, Stephen Campbell Moore, Ben Miles and Jeremy Neumark-Jones. Set in the mid-sixties in Aden (Yemen) ‘The Last Post’ centres on the lives of a Royal Military Police unit and their families, in the last days of the British Empire.
The process of crafting the soundtrack for ‘The Last Post’ was an unusual one in that Solomon Grey (aka Joe Wilson and Tom Kingston) made frequent visits to the filming location in South Africa, writing and recording. Visits were in part driven by the fact that Joe (IMDb name Joe Kennedy) also appears as an actor in ‘The Last Post’, playing a pivotal role in the series as well as being half of Solomon Grey.
‘The Last Post’ soundtrack features both electronic and classical orchestral instrumentation, creating a rich dystopian sonic landscape that befits the story and you can check out a behind the scenes documentary of the making of the soundtrack HERE.
Solomon Grey previously scored the 2015 BBC mini-series ‘The Casual Vacancy’ and will be releasing the follow-up to their critically acclaimed self- titled debut album ‘Solomon Grey’ in early 2018 on Mercury KX.
