‘Symmetry - Themes For An Imaginary Film’ by Johnny Jewel
Not content with having a hand in one of the best soundtracks of the year in Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, Johnny Jewel and his usual crew of Italians Do It Better collaborators have come up with this conceptual, two-hour, cinematic soundtrack, apparently three years in the making. Put succinctly by Jewel; “Over the span of thirty seven tracks, Symmetry embraces the elegance of European noir cut with a lean & violent American razor.”
Mirroring the mood of a sinister midnight cityscape circa 1982, you can expect lots of brooding italo, pulsating synths and icy atmospherics. The lengthy and in-depth description at the source is well worth reading. Wow.
