War Machine is a new Netflix film, directed by David Michôd and starring Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton among many others. Military snares set a sharp cadence beneath the score’s eerie synths and strings, instantly reminiscent of Skeleton Tree by Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and the beautiful Hell Or High Water score. “Together we made a score that was both light and dark, propulsive and meditative at the same time. We developed a kind of ‘spiritual electronics’ that captured both the melancholy and the terrible absurdity of the Afghan war,” Cave and Ellis said in a press release. “It was a great pleasure to work with David Michôd, who is not only an extraordinary filmmaker but a musician too. Our favorite score!”
