Music

David has written and performed music in a wide variety of genres.

 

SYNTH POP

Up in the World – Written for the Christmas Number One teaser. Vocals by Hannah Howell, who also stars in the teaser. Additional production by Ed Seed of Dua Lipa and Stats.

True & Sexy – performed with Ladyfriend. A massive club banger featuring David’s first (and last) attempt at rapping.

Ween Parade – performed with Ladyfriend. A tribute to the greatest band of all time: WEEN!

 

MUSICAL COMEDY

At the Table – An early demo commissioned for a comedy pilot about fantasy board game obsessives. The music was designed to feel as swashbuckling as possible and the lyrics make gentle fun of some familiar fantasy tropes.

CGI – performed with West Country folkers More Silage. I wrote this back in the mid 2000s when Hollywood was awash with bad CGI, magazines were obsessed with Photoshop, and suddenly it seemed we couldn’t trust our own eyes any more…

Dairy Factory – performed with More Silage. A reworked version of this song will appear in our new feature, Christmas Number One.

PUNK ROCK

Suckers – as featured in Stronger (2017, dir. David Gordon Green, starring Jake Gyllenhaal)

Coitus Inquisition – as featured in Flower (2017, dir. Max Winkler, starring Zoey Deutch)

 

SOUNDTRACKS

Heads Bodies Legs – a piece commissioned for the play of the same name, inspired by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
