A Girl Is A Gun (Music From The Original Series)
I have no idea about the TV series – but I’ll give it a chance now that I’ve heard its soundtrack. I’d listen to any movie or TV soundtrack by the prolific and multi-talented Sebastien Tellier. He sings in English, French and Italian, is a multi-instrumentalist and producer and my favourite of his solo albums feels like the perfect soundtrack except it’s to a movie in his mind.
Never mind, he has actually composed for TV and film and contributed to soundtracks created or curated by others. Here his textures, templates and aesthetic feels perfect for the Grindhouse-styled postering and posturing of this Denise Richards-vehicle.
Shooters feels like Daft Punk’s soundtrack work – well there’s a connection there too of course. And Drunk On The Radio might not have been out of place on L’Aventura or Confection.
So, in short, if you’re already in deep you’ll love this – but if you’re new to the Tellier world let this be a good-enough introduction.
A Gun On Your Head’s driving piano and percussion makes space – eventually – for all those retro-futuristic synth sounds, Cake News is a camp vamp through synth-stabs and drum machine grooves and Chrysalis – with a Tarantino-esque spoken-word overlay is something of a scene-setter, even if you never get to the TV show. I might struggle on second thoughts, given this music is so good. I’m happy enough just with this.
