Peter Strickland’s new film Berberian Sound Studio - a thriller centring around a foley artist working on a ‘70s giallo film - looks completely fascinating but sadly I’ve not seen it yet so I’m having to review this soundtrack out of context. Thankfully it’s a wonderful record in its own right so that shouldn’t be beyond me.
As one might expect, there’s a big Italian horror influence throughout, with oodles of vintage analogue synths, distant screams, unhinged babbling and the occasional sound effect (but mostly lots and lots of synths), and the tracks being a mixture of brief links and cues and longer, more developed pieces which impressively infuse the classic soundtrack atmospheres of the likes of Fabio Frizzi and Tangerine Dream with the very British haunty aesthetic which Broadcast made their own in the years before Trish Keenan’s untimely demise last year.
Despite the obvious (and unavoidable considering the themes of the film) Italo-horror bent this is still unmistakably a Broadcast record, and a good one too, and these sounds will fit nicely into your collection with the slew of great horror reissues and library synth worship coming out lately.
