The Guest : Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

I really enjoyed this movie and love the synthpop soundtrack reminiscent of the films Drive and It Follows, all of which are 3 of my favorite soundtracks of all time. I find the atmospheres of these films all very similar and with a sleek, stylish nature similar to 80s films, all done on lower budgets. Does anyone else really enjoy these soundtracks? And for anyone that finds them detracting it'd be interesting to hear reasons why

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

Loved the soundtrack. I was quite surprised to hear Clan of Xymox. That was a group I loved in the 80s but have barely heard since. Very few kids today would have heard of Clan of Xymox.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

Yes the soundtrack is awesome. Made the movie far far better.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

The soundtrack was way too good for this lame B-movie. So good it was noticeable throughout.

Anyone that loved this soundtrack should check out season 5 of American Horror Story and also the movie Gypsy 83.

Anyone have any recommendations for movies with similar soundtracks/sounds?

Aside from the already mentioned It Follows, Drive, and AHS: Hotel, I'll recommend Maniac to anyone who hasn't seen it.

But I need more!!!

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

Check out The Final Girls.

Comedy slasher with 80s vibe and synth music.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

Look for these band
perturbator, Gost, dance with the dead, carpenter brut is awesome. Kavisnky. Dan terminus

Great synth bands

more synth

Anything scored by tangerine dream has the feel. Thief 1983. Legend. Risky business. Near dark. Four awesome movies

Re: more synth

I love it so much. Southbound did it too. And You're Next was released today!

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

Try listening to anything and everything featured on New Retro Wave's youtube channel. Their compilations on band camp are amazing as well.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

I'm pretty sure Cold In July had a synthpop soundtrack as well and I found it an immensely underrated movie. I know Turbo Kid has an amazing soundtrack as well

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

Enjoy it very much. For example Drive and It follows uses the same kind of soundtrack a bit better though.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

Reminded me of mass effect soundtrack. So much so that I thought it was a bit of a rip off.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

I absolutely loved it. The last scene in the maze reminded me a lot of giallo films and 80s slashers, a total blast. Murder Rock by Lucio Fulci comes to my mind. Awesome movie.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

The soundtrack is literally the reason I came here.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

I think the movie itself isn't all that memorable, but the soundtrack floored me. Most of the time I'm surprised if movies include a single song I enjoy (too much '60 & '70 nostalgia imo), but The Guest had Clan of Xymox, Love and Rockets, Front 242 and Hocico ++. That's a hitrate I cannot remember ever having encountered since Grosse Pointe Blank (back in 1997). I'm a huge fan of electonic/industrial music, but I always thought of it as an underground phenomena few filmmakers would care about.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

Beyond the Black Rainbow definitely fits this list

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

I'm looking forward to Neon Demon because I'm sure it'll have a very similar retrowave soundtrack.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

You forgot my favorite: Carpenter Brut! :)

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

I wrote it here on another post replying to other people lol.

What other synth bands do u like?

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

All those musicians you mentioned are considered darksynth/horrorsynth. Perturbator being my favorite. Not quite a fan of the rest.

I'd highly recommend Makeup and Vanity Set if you love this kind of music. He has a unique style that most synth musicians can't quite achieve in terms of nostalgia and atmosphere.

https://makeupandvanityset.bandcamp.com/music

Or just visit the outrun sub on Reddit, you'll find much more there.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

do you know any more darksynth/horrorsynth bands?

im dying to find new bands or new songs but I dont have much luck. ill definitely check makeup and vanity set. thank you so much for suggesting it, i would never have found them

this is my favorite music to listen to now but there are so few bands like perturbator

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

You may or may not like some of these, but keep in mind, they're just my recommendations.

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

thank you so much my friend

Re: Anyone like the synthpop/industrial revival soundtracks?

started to listen synthwave just recently, a year or so and at the time of the first watch i didn't pay any attention to the music, but now i hear some familiar "killer" tracks, especially during the last scene
