War Machine (A Netflix Original Film) CD - Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
War Machine is a new Netflix film, directed by David Michôd and starring Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, and others.
Military snares set a sharp cadence beneath the score’s eerie synths and strings, instantly reminiscent of Skeleton Tree by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, and the beautiful Hell Or High Water score.
“Together we made a score that was both light and dark, propulsive and meditative at the same time. We developed a kind of ‘spiritual electronics’ that captured both the melancholy and the terrible absurdity of the Afghan war,” Cave and Ellis said in a press release. “It was a great pleasure to work with David Michôd, who is not only an extraordinary filmmaker but a musician too. Our favorite score!”
