Update: We removed the track in agreement with the movie production company.
This beautifully noirish cover of “SOS” doesn’t need a whole lot in the way of words. Portishead‘s take on the ABBA classic captures and emphasizes the darker aspects of the original. The song is supposed to appear on the soundtrack for Ben Wheatley’s adaptation of JG Ballard’s High-Rise and is not officially available outside the movie. Luckily, someone uploaded a recording of it to SoundCloud that we’ve embedded above.
