Late last year Sigur Ros producer and frequent collaborator Alex Somers hooked up with the band once again to deliver original music for Hang The DJ, one of the flagship episodes of the most recent Black Mirror series. Now his acclaimed score for the Netflix programme, as well as two new songs made in collaboration with Sigur Ros for the programme, is released on CD and vinyl by Invada Records. Somers composed the Black Mirror episode on the back of recent scores for the silent movie archive epic Dawson City: Frozen Time and Viggo Mortensen vehicle Captain Fantastic, both of which have drawn wide praise. He also collaborated with Sigur Ros mainman and partner Jonsi on the music for the US TV atomic bomb drama Manhattan. Previously, in their Jonsi and Alex guise, the pair made the much-loved ambient masterpiece Riceboy Sleeps in 2009, with Somers going on to co-produce Sigur Rós’s 2012 and 2013 albums Valtari and Kveikur.
