Penny Woolcock's film – which collates decades of footage of the British coast from the BFI archive and makes of it a meditative and poetic ode to Britain's island identity – is given a brand new musical score, played live by British Sea Power. These psychedelic boy scouts from Cumbria have moved from incendiary blasts of jerky, wry and angular post-punk to softer textures, and are riding high on the back of last year's acclaimed 'Machineries of Joy' album. Their shimmering Bunnymen-styled epics and tear-jerking harmonies are just the thing to accompany Woolcock's cinematic elegy.
