‘Beasts Of The Southern Wild’ Soundtrack Hits iTunes Today – IndieWire

A heartrending, magical and extraordinary debut film about a six-year-old girl who leaves her ailing father and Delta-community home in search of her mother (though that feels like just the tip of the iceberg), equally exceptional and particularly striking is the film’s wonderful score. Written by producer/mixer and composer Dan Romer and Zeitlin himself (they also both scored Zeitlin’s acclaimed short “Glory At Sea“), in a recent interview with the director that The Playlist has yet to publish, the filmmaker told us the concept for the score was that it was the music that lead character Hushpuppy (played by Quvenzhané Wallis in an amazing breakthrough turn) hears inside her head.  

Stirring, mournful, bewitching and anthemic, it’s not completely off-base to say the score is Arcade Fire-esque in its energetic and rousing celebratory nature. And yes, on a close listen, it’s all based on the same one-theme, but that’s part of its emotional brilliance. However you want to describe it, we recommend you check it and the movie out as soon as possible.
