Spring Breakers is only a week away from its theatrical release, and in anticipation for the film, you can read my interview with the insane genius Harmony Korine earlier this morning. And now, via Pitchfork Advance, you can listen to the entire soundtrack. Scored by master of dub Skrillex and ambient mood maverick Cliff Martinez, the score for the film highlights Korine’s realm of hyper-reality and sexually charged deviance. Music plays a key role, not only in lulling you into the world of his characters, but structurally.
Korine saw the film more in terms of music, saying:
When I was writing the movie, I was thinking, in terms of narrative, the film being more like a pop song—like a violent pop song. That’s why a lot of the sequences have this sort of looping effect, this trance effect…You know how sometimes you just pluck things out of the air?, I don’t really know why I knew it would work or why it would be so beautiful. It’s like some horrific opera or something—pop opera. But yeah, it is, there’s something really gorgeous about those images.
The soundtrack also features Gucci Mane (who appears in the film), Rick Ross, Ellie Goulding, and many more. Take a listen HERE and read the rest of the interview with Korine HERE.
