Track Of The Day: Mogwai - Donuts

A mesmerising, powerful piece of music from the ever-brilliant Mogwai. Following on from last year's 'Every Country's Sun', the Glasgow band are releasing 'KIN: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack', recorded for the upcoming sci-fi/crime drama starring Zoë Kravitz, James Franco, Dennis Quaid, and others. 

In a statement, Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite said, “We were really excited to be asked to record the original score for Jonathan and Josh Baker’s debut movie KIN. It was amazing to do a project that was so different to anything we’ve done before and see how our music fits in a totally different environment to how it’s been used before.”

KIN: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is out August 31. As well as a number of EPs and nine studio albums, Mogwai have also composed the soundtracks 'Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait', the French TV series Les Revenants, the documentary 'Atomic, Living in Dread and Promise' and also co-wrote the score to Fisher Stevens' 2016 documentary film about climate change 'Before the Flood'.
