Pusher Remake Has Score By Orbital, Full Of “Anthemic Film Noir Moments”

In 1997, Orbital contributed to the scores of two feature films, Event Horizon and The Saint, and the music they made was amongst the more powerful and interesting elements in either movie. This year, they’ll be back in the OST section with a new soundtrack to Luis Prieto‘s Pusher.

The film’s distributors, Vertigo, sent us this quote from Orbital’s Paul Hartnoll:

Working on Pusher was a great opportunity to create a score that draws on both moody thriller styles and dance music in equal measures. Full of anthemic film noir moments. Brilliant.

I like to think he lapsed into full Paul Whitehouse for the Brilliant.

While Pusher won’t be in UK cinemas until May, Orbital will be touring in April, in support of their new album, Wonky – their first in eight years. I’d be surprised if they don’t also play something from this soundtrack.

There’s a trailer for Pusher coming… imminently, and I dare say that’s where we’ll first get to sample a little bit of Orbital’s work for the film. We’ll bring it to you as soon as we can.
