Sigur Ros' Jonsi to Score Soundtrack for 1940s Drama 'Manhattan'
Sigur Ros' Jonsi has been confirmed to soundtrack the score for new TV show "Manhattan," alongside long-term partner Alex Somers.

AsĀ Gigwise notes, the show will centre around the race in the 1940s to build the first ever atomic bomb in New Mexico. It will focus on the lives of the scientists and the ever increasing lies and espionage that begins to infiltrate their family and personal lives. It is from the same team that wrote "Chasing Nashville" and are working on the American remake of French drama, "The Returned."

It marks the first TV score debut for Jonsi, who previously worked on Cameron Crowe's movie "We Bought a Zoo" (listen below). Once again it sees him paired up with Alex Somers, who has previously worked on the production of Jonsi's compositions and is known for the pair's collaboration Riceboy Sleeps.

Meanwhile Sigur Ros recently featured in an episode of "Game of Thrones" in which they perform as minstrels in the "Lion & the Rose" episode (better known as the Purple Wedding). They also took the time to put their own spin on the series' anthem of tragedy "The Rains of Castemere," previously once performed by the National.
