As if you don’t love Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire movie enough, the Japan distributors created their own movie trailer, and we’re seriously wondering when a Japanese movie trailer meme is going to hit. If you haven’t seen the insane shoot ’em up film yet, get yourself to a theater pronto. The score by Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury is just perfect.
[Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury’s score] have a serious ’70s FM radio feel to them… The Free Fire soundtrack is just the latest example to prove that ’70s music will never go out of style, and I am totally OK with that. – Johnny Brayson, Bustle
It’s time to lock ‘n’ load your music and cue up the Free Fire Soundtrack, score by Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury. The duo looked to folks who did iconic 1970s scores such as “David Shire, who did The Taking ofPelham 123, or Lalo Schifrin.” The soundtrack is out now on Lakeshore and Invada Records worldwide. Experience the score in eight-track format vicariously through this very ’70s teaser, below. Preview the entire album at the jump.
[Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury] manage to keep the disparate styles of their songs in tune with the film’s frenzied energy… You won’t believe it until you hear it anyway. Promise me that you will, ‘cause it’s insane in all the best ways. Just like Wheatley’s film. – Patrick Phillips, Cut.Print.Film
Soundtrack available now worldwide on Lakeshore Records/Invada Records: [Download][Stream]
