“Mrs. America” tells the story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly, aka “the sweetheart of the silent majority.” Through the eyes of the women of the era — both Schlafly and second-wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus — the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the ’70s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shifted the political landscape.”
“Composers Ben Salisbury, Geoff Barrow, and their collaborative group The Insects constantly defy expectation. Beautiful riffs are routinely interlaced with experimental electronics and white noise before plunging into deafening silence.” – Decider
And if [Alison] Pill won’t haunt your dreams, the series’ rumbling score — crafted in collaboration among Ben Salisbury, The Insects, and Geoff Barrow — certainly will. ” – Rolling Stone
It just seems fans can’t get enough of Devs, Alex Garland’s sci-fi Limited Series on Fx on Hulu, and neither can the critics.

See what critics far and wide are saying about Ben Salisbury, The Insects and Geoff Barrow’s score!
“Alex Garland‘s latest sci-fi endeavor is proving that silence can have just as powerful an effect. In Devs it’s not only the drama’s gorgeous and carefully crafted soundtrack that gives this FX on Hulu show depth… composers Ben Salisbury, Geoff Barrow, and their collaborative group The Insects constantly defy expectation. – Decider
“The series is also visually spectacular and, as with his films Ex Machina and Annihilation, Garland got Geoff Barrow (Portishead/BEAK>) and Ben Salisbury to do the score and, collaborating with fellow composers The Insects (Bob Locke and Tim Norfolk), they’ve delivered their most striking work yet. – Brooklyn Vegan
