Stereogum premieres Colin Stetson’s haunting track ‘Charlie’
Thu May 24th
Saxophone powerhouse Colin Stetson released a new instrumental track entitled ‘Charlie’. Premiered via Stereogum, this nerve-wracking, eerie track is composed for the upcoming horror film ‘Hereditary’, starring Toni Collette and Ann Dowd. Listen below.
“As the theme for the haunted teenage character Charlie, Stetson’s “Charlie” portrays the girl’s disturbed nature with a searching urgency. Beginning with an eerie and spiraling pattern reminiscent of Steve Reich, the track is held together by the sound of a thumping heartbeat, one that beats just a little too fast for comfort. There is a moment of calm in the middle, a skeptical serenity that is swiftly erased by the overwhelming rumble of a drone and a siren of strings. Even without the film’s visuals, “Charlie’s” sleek and chilling sound stands alone and freaks you out.” - Stereogum
Colin Stetson will perform at Le Guess Who 2018 together with a.o. Oliver Coates, Sons of Kemet XL, Kadri Gopalnath, Jozef van Wissem, Cüneyt Sepetçi, Rizan Said, and many more.
