‘Between Sea and Sky’ by Belbury Poly.
Taken from The Path, an album of music and spoken word, out on Ghost Box Records this Friday.
Musically The Path takes as its starting point a particular moment of early 1970s British film soundtracks by the likes of Roy Budd and Roger Webb; a soundworld of easy-going jazz and funky rhythms gently coloured with pastoral strings and flutes.
Justin Hopper’s words form a loose, open-ended narrative, interspersed at intervals amongst the instrumental passages.
