As Deadline reports, Scotland's Belle and Sebastian are scoring a new British indie film, Days of the Bagnold Summer, that stars Nick Cave's 18-year-old son, Earl Cave (The End of the F***ing World). The film is the directorial debut of Simon Bird, an actor and comedian known for his role as Will McKenzie in The Inbetweeners TV and movie series. The movie is based on a 2012 graphic novel of the same name by Joff Winterhart. The IMDB listing for the movie describes its plot as such: "A teenager spends his summer listening to heavy metal music and trying to get along with his librarian mom." Monica Dolan (Eye in the Sky) plays the mom and the film also stars Rob Brydon (The Trip), Tamsin Greig (Second Best Marigold Hotel), Alice Lowe (Prevenge), and Elliot Speller-Gillot (Uncle). There is no release date for the movie yet, it has just finished filming. Above is the first still photo from the movie.

Belle and Sebastian previously scored Todd Solondz's 2001 comedy Storytelling. They recently released three interconnected EPs via Matador, all titled How to Solve Your Human Problems. How to Solve Your Human Problems Part 1 came out in December, Part 2 came out in January, and Part 3 came out in February. Then all three EPs were collected in a vinyl box set and CD compilation that also came out in February. Then in May the band announced The Boaty Weekender, a floating festival to set sale from Barcelona to Sardinia and back again on August 8-12, 2019. Its initial lineup was announced last month and includes Camera Obscura, Tracyanne & Danny, Mogwai, Honeyblood, and Django Django. Also setting sail are Alvvays, The Buzzcocks, Japanese Breakfast, HINDS, Kelly Lee Owens, Nilüfer Yanya, and Whyte Horses.

We also recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of Belle and Sebastian's 1998 album The Boy With the Arab Strap.
