Bastille might have the perfect sound to accompany Drive, so it’s fitting that they’re contributing to BBC’s re-scoring of the celebrated and introspective crime movie. The appropriately named track, “The Driver,” is moody with a series of stacked and heavy builds. Much like the film itself, the song alternates between quiet and thoughtful moments and blaringly loud intense moments — you can almost picture Ryan Gosling thinking about important stuff, and then violently lashing out.
Radio 1 Rescores: Drive – Curated by Zane Lowe also features Banks, Eric Prydz, SBTRKT, Laura Mvula, and CHRVRCHES, whose contribution, “Get Away,” premiered when the project was announced. The re-scored version will air on October 30th on BBC in the U.K. Check out the trailer below, and stream “The Driver” above.
