Nick Cave

the road - original film score



Released: 18th Jun 2012


out of stock

re-issue of cave & ellis' evocative score featuring violin & piano with beautiful fleeting melodies & eerie sound loops filled with terror & suspense.

the dark, hairy duo re-release their soundtrack to the road, a movie adaptation of the novel by cormac mccarthy (author of no country for old men), an epic post-apocalyptic tale which boldly imagines a future in which men are pushed to the worst & the best that they are capable of - a future in which a father & his son are sustained by love. in the words of nick himself, this is  “a light, haunting, simple score with a sense of absence & loss at its heart”. yet more essential & astonishingly moving film music from these two. “cave & ellis are a marriage made not so much in heaven as in a captivating kind of underworld” – metro.
