Motion Picture Soundtrack

Real Name:
Motion Picture Soundtrack
Faith, violence, a casualty of the 2nd world war and the birth-place of psychedelic music. Canterbury - a city in the garden of England has a rich history and it's against this backdrop that the band 'Motion Picture Soundtrack' formed in the winter of 2003 and attempted to create music as vast and haunting in sound as the city's cathedral itself.

Alastair Blackwood (vocals), Nick Watts (guitar), Will Hasler (bass) and Graeme Blackwood (drums) originally having grown up in different parts of the UK including a few years in the U.S. met while studying at university and discovered they shared a mutual love of film soundtracks - the source of inspiration for the band name and not - as many people assume - the track by Radiohead. As a result, they decided to form a band with the express purpose of combining the fragility of Thomas Newman, the ethereal beauty of Jon Hopkins & Cocteau Twins with the power, aggression and sonic theatrics of Hans Zimmer, Muse and Arcade Fire.

Having released their debut album 'The Shapes We Fear Are Of Our Own' in March 2010, the band were asked to play a Maida Vale session for BBC Introducing, won the Camden Crawl Emerging Talent DIY award and rounded the year off with a slot at the Reading & Leeds festival. Motion Picture Soundtrack have now returned to the music scene after a lengthy absence having finally completed work on their second album 'Iconoclast' (due for release early 2015).
