‘Summer’s Here’ is on the soundtrack to Tom’s own film ‘Any Way The Wind Blows’ (Its UK premiere was in London on the 11 June). I went and had a look for a write up of it and found this;

    On a sweltering Friday afternoon, eight people dream of a different life.
    There’s wind and music, police and paranoia, hints and allegations. There’s an ancient virus, a wandering frisbee, a dead horse, and, drifting through town, an enigmatic phenomenon called Windman who feels the pain of everyone but can’t seem to help himself.
    At night, a party welcomes all…”

Something for everyone then…
