about

Beanie Tapes is tapetastically excited to present Running Up That Hill by Candy Says – an intense electro-pop version of the classic Kate Bush song recorded for the opening credits of the new Netflix film Close, starring Noomi Rapace (Girl With The Dragon Tattoo).

Candy Says were asked to cover the song by director Vicky Jewson, who wanted a new version that fit the mood of the film. The lead character Sam (Rapace) is a badass bodyguard who tries to keep her humanity and emotional fragility out of sight. The band collaborated with the film’s composer Marc Canham to create a cinematic track that prefigures the brooding menace of the brutal score but also gives the audience a taste of the intense emotion that Sam will eventually reveal. The new version had to be approved by Kate Bush herself, and the band were thrilled that after a nail-biting few days she gave it her blessing.
