“Abraham’s Daughter” by Arcade Fire // The Hunger Games - Official Soundtrack (2012)
Entertainment Weekly scored a nice little treat by posting one of the new Arcade Fire tracks from the forthcoming soundtrack to “The Hunger Games”. Oddly, it immediately reminded me of the “Romeo + Juliet” soundtrack from back when I was a teenager, then reading the interview Win Butler, they cited that as an inspiration (Radiohead’s “Exit Music” to be precise). Smart move. As for the track itself, it’s an eerie, dark, and atmospheric piece that has one foot in a youthful, choir - marching band sound and the other in a sinister sounding blend of americana and space rock. It’s definitely a cool song that seems to evoke the themes of the book and film. It’s good stuff. Press play and check it out.
I am in love with this song. the number of times I’ve listened to it is unreal. two fucking days.
