The Soundtrack Geek has reviewed The Drift’s score. And it’s a fantastic review!
Here’s a taste:
It is a very dark affair, dark as space itself. It’s a horror sci-fi so I expected nothing else. Opening Sequence “Darkwave” starts with a deep and dark synth, the dark brass sound is pushing forward and so I’m surprised when a beautiful piano motif starts playing at 0:24. It’s minimalistic and beautiful. When the flute hits at 0:50 I get goosebumps. This is really great stuff, both atmospheric and melodic. Strings starts playing and it’s all good, but where’s the terror? In the middle, around 2:20, the brass is back and it is building up very slowly and it hits some quite heroic strings accompanied by the reverberating piano. This is gorgeous. Love it.
