Motion Picture Soundtrack are a British alternative rock quartet from Canterbury, Kent. Since their inception, the band has been composed of Alastair Blackwood, Nick Watts, Graeme Blackwood, and Will Hasler.
The name comes the band's love of film soundtracks, not, as many people assume, from the track by Radiohead. They cite influences such as Thomas Newman, Craig Armstrong, and alternative acts such as Sigur Rós, Talk Talk, Cocteau Twins, Jeff Buckley and Massive Attack.
Motion Picture Soundtrack self-released their first studio album The Shapes We Fear Are Of Our Own on 1 March 2010.
Produced by Paul Schroder in Copenhagen, the band returned to London to mix the record with engineer Cenzo Townshend at Olympic Studios.
Motion Picture Soundtrack released their debut single Departure on 7 September 2009, reaching No. 6 in Total Guitar Magazine's top download charts, with the follow-up Glass Figures on 22 February 2010. The album The Shapes We Fear Are Of Our Own was released on 1 March 2010.
