Well, this is a nice surprise for a Friday. the bringing together of two of my favourite things in the world, Swedish SynthWave master Mitch Murder and David Lynch & Mark Frost’s early ‘90’s unsettling-fest Twin Peaks. Mitch’s new track is a love letter both to the show and to Angelo Badalamenti’s soundtrack.
Titled Traces To Nowhere (the title of the first, or second, episodes of the show’s first season, depending on your perspective on whether the feature-length pilot is counted as episode one), the track is an obvious homage to Badalamenti and Julee Cruise’s Falling, Twin Peak’s theme tune, but never attempts to replicate it. The track is more a cover version of a mood, an atmosphere, than any one piece of music. Building upon the same foundation of the shows soundtrack, Mitch takes those elements in his own direction, layering lush, haunting synths over a Trevor Jones soundtrack style bass. It will feel familiar, but at the same time brand new. Amazing work.
