Ashes to be released on DVD this Monday
The Tim Wheeler and Ilan Eshkeri scored 2012 film hits the shops on January 28.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 29 Jan 2013
Ashes - the contemporary film noir directed by Mat Whitecross, with a score composed by Ivor Novello nominated composer Ilan Eshkeri and Ash frontman Tim Wheeler, will be released on DVD and VOD this Monday, January 28.
The film was executive-produced by Coldplay and stars Ray Winstone (The Sweeney, Quadrophenia, Sexy Beast) and Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas, One Day).
Ashes centers around Winstone's character Frank,who stricken with Alzheimer's, is confined to a residential home. His son James (Jim Sturgess) appears, and takes Frank from the home. They go on the run, and as their journey unfolds, the present merges with the past, and the truths of an imperfect past are revealed with a grim twist.
Check out the trailer below.

Are Ash reinventing themselves as some kind of Sparklehorse/Super Furry Animals hybrid? Because, on the strength of this single, you’d swear they’d pulled off just such a transformation. They’ve given free rein to their pop sensibilities with a chorus as wide as an open horizon, while the Beatles plunge that leads into the second verse certainly shivered my timbers. Elsewhere, the guitar solo flickers to a blaze big enough to convince us that the Ash we know and love are still in there somewhere. It’s a belter – the sound of a summer we haven’t yet been given.

2007-06-12 - News
Written in France at Bono’s house, no less, it seems that all the excitement of meeting the man himself made Tim Wheeler forget the basics of creating a song. Stuff like melody. Remember that Tim? From a band who brought us ballads as strong as ‘Oh Yeah’ and ‘Shining Light’, anything less than perfection is a disappointment, and this is a wishy-washy track that’s as uninventive with the string section as is with the lyrics. Cool packaging though.

As is often the case when bands have a whole host of new material they're itching to try out, the crowd become slightly restless midway through the evening. The Meltdown material sounds great, but there's no getting around the fact that we've come to hear the old favourites, and the band know it.
