Thom Yorke’s enthralling ‘Suspiria’ soundtrack is consumed by haunting beauty
Listen to Thom Yorke‘s Suspiria soundtrack.
Listen to it late at night, alone in your apartment, while you’re curled up with the lights off, and try not to get goosebumps; but God forbid, don’t overthink the unsettling chanting monks or how eerily disturbing, crushing and seamless the dissonant work is.
Radiohead frontman, Thom Yorke, has finally released the soundtrack for the remake of Italian film director, Dario Argento’s 1977 cult horror classic Suspiria. It’s an exasperating, all-consuming body of work. From the glowing piano ballads of “Suspirium,” to songs that would have fit in nicely against The Moon Shaped Pool backdrop, to the vintage Yorke circa The Eraser, seen on tracks like “A Green Light,” Yorke’s experimental inclinations are all in attendance. It’s an amorphous body of work that both soothes and spooks in its perpetual ebbs and flows. What more could a listener want in a horror soundtrack?
The Suspiria soundtrack is out now via XL. Suspiria is in theaters everywhere November 2.
