Now, they're scoring music for the film 'Blue Valentine,' which comes right on the heels of their contribution to the indie band-studded 'New Moon' soundtrack.
According to film and music blog The Playlist and the Sundance Film Festival 2010 website, Grizzly Bear are credited under 'Music' for the flick, which stars the actor (and Dead Man's Bones lead singer) Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams.
Co-written and directed by Derek Cianfrance, the film is "an intimate, shattering portrait of a disintegrating marriage," writes the Sundance description, following a couple "on the far side of a once-passionate romance" as they try to figure out where it all went wrong.
The film was shot in Brooklyn, NY, Scranton, PA, and other locations on the East Coast, and was delayed due to the death of Heath Ledger.
Grizzly Bear's penchant for understated compositions heavy on mood and atmosphere -- particularly on their second album 'Yellow House' -- suggests 'Blue Valentine' will be but one of many soundtrack gigs for the band.
