I’m delighted to announce that with the help of Executive Producer Will Carter I was able to secure music by globally renowned artists Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, as well as Irish & British talents Ryan Vail, Conor Walsh, OCHO and Andy Gillion for the soundtrack of “The Betrayal”.
The film features “Martha’s Dream,” performed by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, under a shared license from BMG, MUTE Song Ltd. and Surefire Films Ltd. The track was originally written for a soundtrack to a 2006 feature film “The Proposition”, starring Guy Pearce, Ray Winstone and Emily Watson.
The Betrayal also features tracks by Ryan Vail from his debut album “For Every Silence”, chosen as the Album of The Week for Huw Stephens show on BBC Radio 1. Ryan was recently nominated for Best Male Solo artist in Ireland 2016.
Another group featured in the film’s eclectic soundtrack is OCHO, a Dublin electronic act which just recently released a new EP “Mouth to Mouth“. The duo performed at Body & Soul, Dublin’s Vicar St (opening for Bell X1), Electric Picnic and Castlepalooza to name a few. Their music has been described as “comfortably creepy, timeless, and ambient.”
Last but not least, The Betrayal’s soundtrack includes “The Front” by the late Conor Walsh, to whom the film is dedicated, and tracks by Andy Gillion, a multi-instrumentalist based in the South West of England.
The Betrayal will premiere at the 24th GAZE International LGBT Film Festival in Dublin on July 31st 2016. Tickets are available here.
