ALEX ANDREW looks at Gone Girl’s Soundtrack.
Nine Inch Nail’s frontman Trent Reznor is ‘scoring’ something a little different these days.
Not only has he just realeased a new album with his industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, Reznor is back, and he’s scoring… films.
After his Oscar winning soundtrack for The Social Network he was busy with film Director David Fincher, director of Benjamin Button and The Fight Club, preparing for the new hit feature film, ‘Gone Girl’, which has got all of London talking since its release here.
Recently Reznor has been spotted playing the family man with his wife, Mariqueen Maandig, and their two boys out in New York City. Which makes a change from testosterone filled stadiums where he performs in the evenings.
He’s still doing Rock, it’s just from the back seat nowadays. He has been through it all, and has come out the other end with a pencil in one hand and a manuscript in the other. The new tracks follow a similar path to those written by Daniel Licht for the TV Series – Dexter. The depths of intensity and sadness are not something the average music lover would have on their iPod, but then again, Alex Salmond’s been through a lot recently.
Gone Girl, written by Gillian Flynn may be another one hit wonder, but is set to top box offices in the UK and America.
The story follows the suspected death of Amy, all eyes turn to her husband and so on. It’s intense, and certainly a clichéd ‘page turner’. I’m excited for this story to have a soundtrack, you should be too.
