There’s nothing to cure the coming winter blues than a nice coming-of-age, story, which is exactly what “Days of the Bagnold Summer” is about.
The film, which will be directed by Simon Bird, is an adaptation of the book authored by Joff Winterhart. Even more anticipated than the film is the soundtrack, which will be scored by Belle and Sebastian. For those who haven’t heard of this band, they were formed in 1994 and has long been a staple on the indie pop scene.
In 1996, Belle and Sebastian released If You’re Feeling Sinister, which was universally praised, including receiving a rare five-star rating from AllMusic and Rolling Stone. Since then, Belle and Sebastian have maintained their status as innovators, even though their recording of new material has slowed down a bit, with their latest album, Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, being released in 2015.
This project, however, should satisfy the taste buds of their fans, who have been looking for new music from their favorite band. According to Rolling Stone, “Days of the Bagnold Summer” is scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom sometime in the next year, and there is no word, yet, of when the film, or the soundtrack, will be released in America.
