[Listen] Gruff Rhys - "Whale Trail"
Gruff Rhys has entered into a new world of possibilities, albeit one that Bjork has already taken a firm jump into, it's iPhone/iPad apps & games. Gruff has made a theme tune for a new iPhone game called Whale Trail, a game in which you guide a Whale through a multi coloured acid trip of magic whilst collecting bubbles all while avoiding the baddie, Baron van Barry.
Gruff enlisted help from Neil McFarland who he's previously worked on has previously collaborated with Rhys on Super Furry Animals' DVD albums Rings Around the World and Phantom Power. To go with the song Gruff naturally had to create a theme song for the game which is titled "Whale Trail" and can be heard below. Another track will be released on October 20th titled "Space Dust #2" with a limited-edition 12" vinyl single following on the 31st of October. The game's also set to be launched on the 20th. Excited much? For now though, enjoy the retro game sounding guitar and synth filled track below. Hat tip to the Guardian for the heads up on this little piece of magic.
