No spoilers for 'White Lines'

Netflix's new crime drama 'White Lines', created by Álex Pina of 'Money Heist' fame, follows Zoe Walker (Laura Haddock ), who tries to find out what happened to her brother Axel (Tom Rhys Harries), a free-spirited Manchester DJ who mysteriously disappeared in Ibiza, Spain, 20 years ago, and who was now discovered to be dead. The engrossing show has many things to offer, and its music is one of them. After all, that is the least one can expect from a show about the murder of a DJ, set in a party destination.

The show's score is the work of Junkie XL, a Dutch composer, multi-instrumentalist, DJ, and producer, who has composed scores for films like 'DOA: Dead or Alive', 'Run All Night', 'Mad Max: Fury Road', 'Deadpool', 'The Dark Tower', 'Tomb Raider', 'Mortal Engines', 'Alita: Battle Angel', 'Terminator: Dark Fate', and 'Sonic the Hedgehog'. In 'White Lines', the show's scores jump from electronica to flamenco to ambient shoegaze and it works like a charm. 

But what complements this score perfectly is the show's soundtrack. There's pop, there's classical music, there's opera, there's electronica, there's folk music, there's alt-rock. There's even country music. It's a smörgåsbord of genres. And every song suits the scene it's paired with perfectly. Every song hits the right dramatic notes.
