Emily Wells | Becomes the Color (Stoker O.S.T.)

October 28, 2012 at 11:08 pm Leave a comment

Emily Wells is streaming her track, “Becomes the Color”, a song featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming Park Chan-wook film, “Stoker”, starring Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska. I’m unsure exactly if this song will actually be in the movie, or if it’s simply a part of a soundtrack released in conjunction with it. We’ll have to wait and see, after the film is released March 1, 2013. The screenplay was written by Wentworth Miller, who says it’s “not about vampires”, but rather it’s a “horror” and “psychological” film that he says was influenced by Alfred Hitchcock’s “Shadow of a Doubt”. Wells is of course a musical marvel, and a one-woman band. She’s adept at violin, mixing electronics and uniquely created sounds, which include loops, samples, and analog synthesizers, used to fuel her special blend of urbanity, hip-hop and indie music. If you haven’t heard or seen her play her song, “In the Barrel of a Gun”, at KRCL studios in Salt Lake City back in 2008, you should. I mean right now. It’s wicked. It’s a track off her 2008 release, “The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties”. Since then, she’s been on tour, and recorded the “Dirty” EP (2009), and this year, “Mama”. This new song begins creepily, a tingle of bells and warped synth build gradually into strong reverbed vocals,  “I became the color / I became the daughter and the son / When the feast is over / Welcome to another one.” It’s got a great vibe, with that confident flow Wells’ fans have come to appreciate. You can follow Wells at her facebook page. — David D. Robbins Jr.
