Blackpool post-rock outfit blanket have released a video for their cover of John Murphy’s In The House, In A Heartbeat. The track is taken from Murphy’s score for the 28 Days Later film.

Speaking of the release, the band says: “Danny Boyle’s ’28 Days Later’ is a very important film. Not only is it a genre-defining ‘zombie’ movie it is also one of the very first feature films to be shot entirely on consumer-level digital cameras (the Canon XL-1 mini DV). This would in turn inspire a new generation of filmmakers – who were previously restricted by budget for shooting on notoriously expensive film cameras – to pick up a digital camera and get creative. One of the most memorable things about this film was the John Murphy soundtrack, notably the piece ‘In The House – In A Heartbeat’, whose haunting melody provided a perfect audio accompaniment to the scenes of isolation and desolation. We would like to pay homage to this film for inspiring us creatively, both with its images and music by presenting to you our version of that piece of music.”

The video for the track features an original red dress from the 28 Days Later film. It was provided by blanket’s manager Megan Burns who starred as Hannah in the 2002 film. Check it out below!
