At the centre of Grey Dogs is acclaimed producer Tony Doogan (Belle and Sebastian, Mogwai) and the film’s director David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water, Starred Up). They have previously worked together on the soundtrack to Mackenzie’s film ‘Starred Up’ and have formed a way of collaborating that is creatively unique.
Mackenzie says “I am interested in sounds, noises, resonances and sonic collision. I often find myself trying to suppress musicians’ natural impulses to be melodic and ordered with the soundtracks to my films. I am always trying to push away from this into something odder and more intense. I love music and I have had the privilege of working with a number of really great musicians like Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, Max Richter and David Byrne on my soundtracks. But sometimes as a director I want to take more of a front seat in the shaping and creation of the soundtrack. With Outlaw King we wanted the sound to come from the earth; from fire, mud and the bone crushing blunt force of medieval warfare.”
UK/EUROPE – The double vinyl LP has been made available as a limited pressing of 500 worldwide and will be part of the recently announced #loverecordstores event, which will take place on Saturday June 20th, featuring among many other special releases that will be available to music fans.
The #loverecordstores campaign was launched in March to encourage music fans to shop online with their favourite record stores during the Coronavirus pandemic and is helping fill an important gap in the music retail calendar left by the postponement of Record Store Day, which will now take place later this year.
