The soundtrack for the film is composed by Field Music and Warm Digits, performing with the Royal Northern Sinfonia and the Cornshed Sisters. The work premiered in July at Sunderland Empire and has featured on BBC 6 Music, in The Guardian and Sunderland Echo. Future screenings and performances in 2017 include the Barbican, London and HOME, Manchester.
