5 SPOT: Underrated and Overlooked Film Scores
The relationship between audial and visual art is very important -- especially to us! Here are five film scores that might've flown past your head.
Attack the Block (2011)
Basement Jaxx - "The Block"
Joe Cornish’s directorial debut established itself as an immediate cult classic when it premiered in 2011, and when the cast was announced for Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2014, it experienced a massive surge in popularity for having featured John Boyega in a lead acting role. It takes the horror/sci-fi suspense hybrid of Alien and confines it to a housing estate in Brixton. Popular electronic duo Basement Jaxx teamed up with composer Steven Price to knock out the score for Attack the Block, and while the former are known for their big beat/house approach, they cooled things down for something more subtle, lurking, and street-savvy.
