Music by Alec Cheer, score from the Tartan Features production, directed by Grant McPhee
INCREDIBLE MODERN SCORE TO UNDERGROUND PSYCHEDELIC DETECTIVE VAMPIRE INDIE DRAMA. SO THERE.
There is little history here as this is a new release – but this is simply an amazing modern score to a film you may never have heard about (one directed by Grant McPhee). What sets this score apart is it’s clinical post-modern feel – with influences including Mica, John Carpenter, Brian Eno, Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, even with whispers of the 1980s, as well as a musical feel a little like the classic Drive soundtrack. Yet with all these influences composer Alec Cheer somehow manages to create a new work that sounds unlike any other. It’s dark, bewitching, mesmerizing, ear-catching and even "banging" in parts. Look, it must be good, otherwise Jonny Trunk would not be pressing it. And with a spelling mistake too.
