Hot off the heels of executive producing Loyle Carner's 'hugo', Kwes returns with the soundtrack to Raine Allen-Miller's debut feature, Rye Lane - a rom com made in loving tribute to south London. This original score sounds continues on Kwes trademark blend of soul, indie and electronic and features guests Sampha and Tirzah. Kwes’ score accompanies their sublime journey in Rye Lane perfectly, a soundtrack just as sweet as the film itself. Speaking about his involvement and vision for the soundtrack, Kwes explans: "Director Raine and music supervisor David reached out asking if I was up for scoring a rom-com. I was familiar with Raine’s work in music videos and commercials, we also have mutual friends, but of course had no idea she was working on what became Rye Lane. I was sort of aware of how difficult it could be scoring for this genre of film, but then Rye Lane is such a unique take on the rom-com, perhaps even transcends it. So, they sent me the script along with a mood-board and I instantly said yes; so much about it excited me and made me chuckle. Once I had agreed and had an edit of the film sent to me, to my surprise I found that a fair bit of the temp score was my own older music, which of course made my job a bit easier, re: knowing what they were looking for. It was such a joy and pleasure working with the whole crew and with Raine, who is indeed a true visionary.
