Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.

“The End Of The Earth’ is the third studio track from London act Blinding. The lo-fidelity backdrop of subs, field recordings and piano sets the scene for the haunting soul vocals of frontman Tom Sutcliffe. Ripped out of the Massive Attack and Portishead template and reinterprited, Blinding have a beautiful and unique sonic. I would die for this, I would do it with ease.”
