Broadcast - 'Berberian Sound Studio'

The perfect swansong for Broadcast’s Trish Keenan

Broadcast - 'Berberian Sound Studio'

8 / 10 A horror movie set in the ’70s is ideal material for Broadcast’s first foray into movie soundtracking. Turns out the Birmingham band’s creepily beautiful style fits the film directed by Peter Strickland like a ghoulish glove. Comprising The Omen-like church organ, classic horror FX and a spot of occult flute playing, the period-precise score captures the claustrophobic dread and paranoia of the fictional film shoot documented in Berberian Sound Studio, on which the body count slowly rises. This is the perfect swansong for Broadcast’s Trish Keenan, who died of pneumonia before the album’s completion.
