Cliff Martinez reunites with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn to conjure dark disco for sexy thriller The Neon Demon
Three times the charm for veteran film composer Cliff Martinez and director Nicolas Winding Refn. Ever since their initial collaboration on 2011’s sexy indie thriller Drive, the two artists have gone together like Gosling and a hammer. Now, they’re back for Refn’s latest feature, The Neon Demon, starring the ever-talented Elle Fanning as a young, aspiring model surrounded by a bunch of monstrous, beauty-hungry women. Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves co-star. The film just premiered at Cannes Film Festival and to celebrate Milan Records has unearthed the gloomy, pulsating title track from Martinez’s forthcoming soundtrack. As expected, it’s fit for the dance floor and warrants lots of glitter.
