MILAN RECORDS TO RELEASE ‘ONLY GOD FORGIVES’ – ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK


MUSIC COMPOSED BY CLIFF MARTINEZ 

“Cliff Martinez again makes an indispensable contribution to Winding Refn’s defining aesthetic with a richly, textured score that combines pounding martial arts drumbeats, bursts of ecclesiastical organ music, lushly romantic orchestral riffs that recall Pino Donaggio’s work for Brian de Palma, and obsessive techno beats that a time evoke the vintage electropop of Giorgio Moroder.” – Hollywood Reporter

(June 14, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA) – Milan Records will release Only God Forgives  Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally, on CD, and on 180 gram double vinyl on July 16, 2013.  The album features original music by 2012 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, composer Cliff Martinez (Spring Breakers, The Company You Keep) for Nicolas Winding Refn’s follow-up to the 2011 hit Drive.

“Initially, Nicolas suggested that I avoid any instrumentation that would evoke the ghost of Drive.  But in some instances, I just couldn’t find any other instrument that had the unique sense of melancholy and foreboding that the Cristal Baschet does so well,” described Martinez.

Said Refn, “I didn’t know anything about Thai music, but it happened that Cliff did”.  Martinez turned the director onto Esan music.  “I was able to realize that there was this whole tradition of this folk music that’s about fables and so each of these songs has a fable side to it.”
