Boomkat Product Review:
Mark Korven uses a range of anxiety-inducing instrumentation to soundtrack Robert Eggers film about two Lighthouse keepers, or “wickies” holding fast to a rock in shitty weather.
Directed by Riobert Eggers and starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as the “wickies”, ‘The Lighthouse’ is underscored by a fittingly tempestuous soundtrack rich with dark harmonics and gripping textures that help emphasise the imagery. To our ears the music reveals everything from Sir Richard Bishop & W. David Oliphant’s ‘Beyond All defects’ to the bleak expanses of Deathprod and Kevin Drumm in foul weather mode. No denying most copies will be purchased for that die cut sleeve, though.
