As we anticipate the release of Hotel Artemis we look back at the classic Cliff Martinez score the to Nicolas Winding Refn film, Drive!
There is an excellent overview of the Drive Soundtrack by Vehlinggo titled, “Drive Soundtrack: Revisiting The Neon Noir Masterpiece”.
The film and album were celebrated with a special fifth year anniversary release of a limited edition vinyl pressing.
Mandy has been playing festivals from Sundance to Cannes with rave reviews and much love for the score by the late, beloved composer Jóhann Jóhannsson who has left us far to soon.
The Panos Cosmatos’ action-thriller is set for release later this year by RLJE Films. The film stars Nicolas Cage and Andrea Riseborough.
“The late Jóhann Jóhannsson’s epic-sounding, metal-tinged score make Mandy feel as if it’s taking place outside of time, dwelling in its own nightmarish realm in which frightening supernatural creatures coexist with their human counterparts.” – ScreenDaily.com
It also features the final completed score by the Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannson, which drifts between sighing, swelling synths and apocalyptic thunder-crashes of electric guitar. It is outstanding – arguably the film’s very soul – though you wouldn’t want to listen before bed. – Telegraph.co.uk
