A selection of tracks by popular Icelandic band Sigur Ros adds emotional ballast and nicely complements Hal Lindes score --Variety
The soundtrack to Scott Hicks' new film, featuring a delicate and ethereal guitar score by Hal Lindes paired with meticulously chosen songs by Sigur Rós, Ray Lamontagne, Carla Bruni, Mayfield, Elbow and Carney.
As composer Hal Lindes observes: "On first listening, 'The Boys Are Back' score appears deceptively simple. Understated and restrained notes carefully plucked from an intimately recorded acoustic guitar. It's only when viewed in context of the film's rich emotion layers that the true complexity of the score comes to light."
