Geoff Barrow from Portishead and Beak> will release his film Soundtrack for the movie Drive on vinyl for the first time starting May 21st, at his own Invada Records. Check out some of the Drive soundtrack in the video player above ... The music has a pop edge but is electro-based and even wanders off into experimental and ambient stuff.
When speaking with The Quietus, Drive soundtrack contributor Cliff Martinez said “One thing that was unique for me about this project was having songs exert such a strong influence on the score. That helped to create a unified, one-size-fits-all, style of soundtrack…the 80s electronic pop style made a lot of sense to me. I knew that Nicolas [Refn, director] was in love with that sound and I saw a way to acknowledge it with vintage synth sounds and cover most of the dramatic food groups while referencing that style.”
