MANIAC

As is with many genre scores of recent times, Rob’s score is heavily indebted to the synth sounds of the 80s. It’s a really striking piece of work, absolutely grimy and sleazy and appropriately murderous, but with a real sense of melody. Behind the echoing electronics, there are flickers of humanity and even regret. But Rob also presents moments of euphoria, cemented with the floor-shaking finale ‘Juno’, with Chloe Alper’s amazing Goldfrapp-esque vocals. Magnificent!
