Aimless Skylarking favorites, The Joy Formidable, have written an original score for Greg Jardin's short film, Floating. Floating is a moving short film featuring a lonely balloon figure searching for acceptance and happiness. The band's plaintive score perfectly backs the piece, adding emotional depth with the subdued tinkling of a few keys.
I knew the band was capable of this type of stunning beauty, but was surprised to hear they'd be scoring a film. Perhaps this will not be the last time the band dips their toes in this type of work.
The relationship between the band and Jardin is not new, he directed the video for band's song 'This Ladder is Ours'. Enjoy 'Floating' below.
