Top 5 movie soundtracks of 2018 3. Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film)
Following in the footsteps of his Radiohead bandmate Johnny Greenwood, Thom Yorke embarked on his first ever film score this year for Luca Guadagnino’s highly anticipated remake of the 1977 cult horror classic 'Suspiria'. The double album is a classic Thom Yorke effort, mixing haunting, eerie atmospheric sounds with even scarier vocal mixes. Yorke described the lyrics as political, influenced by discourse surrounding President Donald Trump and Brexit, which "got tied up with" scenes of marching soldiers in the film. He cited inspiration from the 1982 'Blade Runner' OST, musique concrète artists such as Pierre Henry, modern electronic artists and music from the film's 1977 Berlin setting, including krautrock acts such as Faust and Can.
