Anya Taylor-Joy is certainly a force to be reckoned with. Her meteoric rise has been one to watch and her next upcoming film, “Last Night In Soho,” looks to be continuing her career’s steady upward momentum since her debut role in “The Witch.” If her talent as an actress weren’t enough, she can sing too!
In this new quasi-music video, Anya Taylor-Joy covers Petula Clark’s iconic song from the ’60s, “Downtown.” The music video is titled “Downtown” (Downtempo). This version of the song gives off a haunting melody that is enhanced by Taylor-Joy’s beautiful voice. The song is the perfect blend of beauty and horror, which seems to be the tone director Edgar Wright is going for in “Last Night In Soho.”
The synopsis for the upcoming film reads, “An aspiring fashion designer is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters a dazzling wannabe singer. But the glamour is not all it appears to be and the dreams of the past start to crack and splinter into something darker.” In a way this song starts off dream-like and then splinters into something darker.
If you want to hear more of Anya Taylor-Joy’s seductive singing voice or you’re just a big fan of Edgar Wright, (it can be both), then “Last Night In Soho” is the upcoming film for you. Starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, and Matt Smith, “Last Night In Soho” will be released only in theaters on Oct. 29, 2021.
