Originally available as a digital-only release, Invada Records and Lakeshore Records
present the original score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis to the film La Panthère Des
Neiges (AKA The Velvet Queen) on limited white vinyl, limited picture
disc and cd. The soundtrack is one of Ellis and Cave’s most heartfelt and haunting
film projects.

High up on the Tibetan plateau. Amongst unexplored and inaccessible valleys lies
one of the last sanctuaries of the wild world, where rare and undiscovered fauna
lives. Vincent Munier, one of the world’s most renowned wildlife photographers takes
the adventurer and novelist Sylvain Tesson (In the Forest of Siberia) with him on his
latest mission. For several weeks, they’ll explore these valleys searching for unique
animals and try to spot the snow leopard, one of the rarest and most difficult big cats
to approach.

Ellis explains how Cave and himself came to be involved : “There is something about
the heart of this film that draws you in. I realised after a day, that I wanted to do
whatever it took to compose an entire original score. The film deserved to have its
own musical voice. I booked five days and asked Nick if he could come in for a day
to write a theme song and play some piano. He saw the film and stayed for four
days. In the end we made what I think is one of the most beautiful films we have
ever worked on. One of my favourite experiences ever working on a project. The
stars are the animals in all their wild glory, as we have never seen them before, and
man in reverence and wonder.”

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
