Stream PJ Harvey – “The Crowded Cell”
PJ Harvey is undoubtedly one of the best artist in the world right now, her works speak for themselves so i dont really need to say much here, she has being putting out some pretty powerful works recently, she wrote the mostly-instrumental score for the theater adaptation of All About Eve, and she also provided much of the score for director Shane Meadows’ (This is England) new four-part drama series The Virtues.
“The Crowded Cell,” a song PJ wrote for the series, closes out each episode, and now that the first part has aired on the UK’s Channel 4.
Polly Jean Harvey MBE was born 9 October 196, she’s better known as PJ Harvey, she’s an English musician, singer-songwriter, writer, poet and composer. Primarily known as a vocalist and guitarist and is also proficient with a wide range of instruments.
She began her career in 1988 when she joined local band Automatic Dlamini as a vocalist, guitarist and saxophone player and since then she has being putting out amazing works and blowing our minds every time.
“I am so happy to have provided the original music for this extraordinary and powerful new drama by a director I have admired and followed all my life,” PJ writes.
“Shane has a unique directness and sensitivity to his work which I am drawn to and aspire to in my own work, so our collaboration was open and trusting. I sent Shane ideas as demos for him to try out as he edited and let him choose what he used and where to the greatest effect. In the end we both loved how the demos worked so left them as they were, adding to the raw beauty of the piece.”
