A late bloomer to the Ryan Gosling Drive fan club, I finally got around to watching the “neo-noir” (whatever that means) crime drama.
It only took a day to realise just how great that film really is. The coolest part about it is the soundtrack.
Without that, Drive wouldn’t be the stunner that it is.
Standing out in the soundtrack, like a throbbing thumb is ‘Nightcall‘ by the French electro genius cool-cat Kavinsky. It’s the opening track to the film Drive and lures you into the film within seconds.
Since watching the film, I have to fulfil my daily fix of this track. It has literally become part of my musical diet over the past week or so.
It’s not just me that has taken to rinsing the YouTube playlist on my phone, another 20 odd million listeners have clicked play, over, and over again.
Kavinsky is super-cool, there is no question about it. His music is romantic, fresh, husky and smooth – all the stereotypes of the average Frenchman.
Check out ‘Nightcall’ below, and be warned, you will be listening for a long time.
