Benjamin John Power has provided the soundtrack for new film 'Calm With Horses'

Blanck Mass has produced his first film score.

The Fuck Buttons founding member has provided the soundtrack to director Nick Rowland's feature film debut, Calm With Horses, and Invada Records will oversee the release of the film's music. You can hear two pieces from the score above.

"Stepping inside the world Nick created was both a new challenge and a rewarding experience," Blanck Mass, AKA Benjamin John Power, says. "Trying to depict the internal dialogues of the rich and varying characters required me adopting a new discipline, like going undercover as opposed to expressing my own emotion.

"Although the score I created has a rich tapestry of sentiments, tying them all together and creating a coherent journey both to picture and as a standalone score has been an amazing experience. The working relationship between Nick and I was explorative and enlightening and I really enjoyed working hands on with him."

Calm With Horses follows a man's struggle to navigate between crime and family life in rural Ireland. Power's soundtrack for the film follows on from his 2019 album Animated Violence Mild.

The soundtrack and film will both be released on March 13.
