The Twisted Melons track, Unwired, amplifies electrifying tension in an award-winning feature film, Ashes.

Speaking about the movie, available on Amazon Prime, singer and guitarist Paul Johnson said: ‘We’re really happy to have our music heard so clearly on a strong soundtrack to a great film alongside bands like Captive State and Olympic Swimmers.

‘Hopefully this recognition will help make more people aware of our back catalogue and forthcoming new album.

‘We’re thrilled that the film is available on Amazon Prime with the potential to reach a wide audience.”

The previously unreleased track plays briefly at the start of the revenge thriller, and then during an extended party scene in a bar, about a third of the way through.

Ashes, from Bradgate Films, written and directed by Alan Coulson, explores the themes of loss, forgiveness, revenge and the tragedy of an existence locked in the past.

Jonathon Soter,  a teacher whose life is in ruins following the death of his wife in a devastating fire, is motivated by the discovery that the boy who killed his wife has been released early from jail.

He embarks on a journey to locate his tormentor to find answers and ultimately, redemption.

Starring Rupert Procter (Notting Hill) and Graeme Rooney (Skins), the movie won Best International Feature at the Garden State Film Festival, New Jersey, in 2016.
