Drive vs Zane Lowe – as it happened

October 31, 2014 - Supermoon

And we’re during a credits, with Medicine by The 1975 once more.

Well, it was a intrepid effort, though I’m nonethewiser as to why. Lowe’s curation
left no sold stamp on it over sounding definitely similar. It was like
someone selecting to dress adult as a Drive soundtrack for Hallowe’en, only
there wasn’t anything humorous or intelligent about it, and no candy or alcohol
altered hands.

There’s clearly a marketplace for putting a new stamp on films, though it has to be a
genuine mark. That unequivocally didn’t occur tonight.

On a splendid side, Lowe got copiousness of people to watch a good film, some for
a initial time, and we detected a smashing strain by a 1975s.

Also, this arrange of lift on by TV channels on amicable media is irrationally

Thanks for fasten me, and good night.


This film is so good. So good. Oddly thoughtful soundtrack changes rebound off
it. Any time we wonder, “why am we here? What am we doing with my life?”
we am soothed by a excellence.

Word from a TV desk:


Ah no, here we are. To The Bone. Mercifully quote-free.


Ooh! ZZC (aka Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil) isn’t singing To The Bone, it’s Borganza.

To applaud this, he has given Radio One a many tedious quote in a world.

Well. we should wish so.


Finally! An whole song. There’s been definitely a bit of fad about Bastille’s
The Driver
on Twitter tonight. Not that Bastille would notice – their
thespian Dan is carrying a poetic discuss with Popjustice about selfie sticks.



Mellow Man by Laura Mvula gets a large one, a lift scene. More! More!
Those creaking shards of Bowie-esque strain work ideally (sorry, though it is very
late and we competence indeed be hallucinating).

The Neighbourhood take a rod with Shannon, that is a
ideal element to Mvula’s song, and a one decent instance of mixing
listened all night. we competence never get over that Bring Me The Horizon bit during the
track. Shocking.


Good mood now, some happy tweets


FINALLY! Something fits – Baauer’s aptly-named Hammer Time,
that is a ideal bit of composition.

That theatre doesn’t get any reduction heavy, though this is as icy as a girls sitting
around like emporium window mannequins. Amazing percussion, like ping pong
balls. This is creepy, irritable stuff.


While we wait for Ryan Gosling to finish sharpened people, some tweets.


Sigh, no. A deposit of that, and now a allegation of Meditation Song by BANKS.
Is Masterchef soundtracking this film?


Bring Me The Horizon finally get an outing, and if it final all a way
by to a motel, afterwards a stone show character they’ve left for creates total


A criticism from Matt:

Oh dear! Im struggling to see since anyone would redo a strain to one of my
favourite films that also had one of my favourite soundtracks? Granted its
ok though certainly a indicate of a redo is to urge and improved a strange ,
isnt it? Maybe a artists are immature so they are removing their possibility but
pierce behind college and Electric youth! Or subsequent time only take a film which
doesnt have a noted soundtrack




Untitled by SBTRKT takes us to a Kid anticipating beaten adult Gabriel
and his bad child Benicio stealing in a corner. The cinematography in this film
is out of this world. Every shot is perfect.

Literally, 4 bars of SBTRKT followed by a bit of warbling into glass
bottles. In a imperishable difference of James Callis’s Tom, come a f— on,


I’ve been looking brazen to being angry all evening. Outrage spin so far
is minimal, though afterwards so is “Oh! You did that! Interesting!” He’s
personification it unequivocally safe. If you’re going to hang to especially electro, afterwards why
do this during all? Cliff Martinez owned electro in his strange score, and not
many opposite is function here.

We’re now onto Standard Gabriel’s lapse from jail with a smidgeonette of Pretty
Boy by The Neighbourhood
. we don’t wish a smidgeonette, we would like a
whole song, please. Somewhere in there was Foals’ Howl (Supermoon),
that we wish we get a bit some-more of since that left in a flash.


It still amazes me that Ron Perlman is significantly some-more frightening as a
plain aged human, than when he’s a hulk red demon with blunt lobsters for


I was wondering what they would do with a immaterial pieces of measure that
gleam along underneath all – and what they’ve finished is got John Hopkins
to write Rescore Arrangement. It doesn’t sound extravagantly different,
that is…good, we guess?

Oh it’s that poetic “we’re all so happy, zero will ever go wrong!”
montage. Medicine by The 1975s replaces College,
and it’s going beautifully. Very good choice.





Oh NO. No. That was a horribly remarkable transition into…I think, Bring Me
The Horizon
. It’s only seemed and afterwards left again. Guys, this isn’t
a time to forget what you’re doing with your switches.


“What do we do?”

“I drive.”

Yeah we do!


No, some-more like Knightrider. This is Eric Prydz with Sequence One,
soundtracking that initial extraordinary drive. Radio One have posted a pic in which
he says “If we could collect any theatre of that movie, that’s a one for me.”
Well we got your wish!

Onto CHVRCHES now, whose Get Away gets a credits sequence.
Huge adore for CHVRCHES – what a band, what a song.


Gosling, we cool, cold dude.

First song’s up. My God is this…is this Tubular Bells? Tubular Bells crossed
with Mission: Impossible?


Zane Lowe’s introduced it – bit of defensiveness there, understandably – and
we’re off. Red symbol during a prepared if you’ve got it.


Nearly time. Get your cuppa and optimism. Or vat of booze and despair.


Me too. Oh – oh we meant a rescoring. Well this is embarrassing.


The 1975 is substantially my favourite new one so far, that seems as good a time
as any to insist we listen to my favourite from a strange soundtrack.

Under Your Spell, by Desire, takes centre theatre in a smashing montage. The
Kid and Irene are only about removing it together when her husband, the
impossibly-named Standard Gabriel (Oscar Isaacs) is inconveniently released
from jail.

This plays over his acquire home party. It’s a overwhelming square of electronica
that positively nails a absurd collection of emotions going on in.
Gabriel can see something’s been going on, Kid is delicately not-uptight,
Irene is torn. If Lowe can get this theatre right, we can all breathe a sigh
of relief.


New strain time! And wow, YouTube really, unequivocally likes Medicine by The 1975

THE TEARS WON’T STOP. That aside, this is enchantingly pleasant – a song,
not a YouTube conversation, keep up. It’s lilting, honeyed and a arrange of
confident regretful strain that’s a auditory homogeneous of someone personification with
your hair.

I competence be overtired.


I really, unequivocally approve of a supplies this man and his cat have pulled


This only in from a Kiwi correspondent: Zane Lowe, starring in a 1994 New
Zealand soothing splash advert.

He’s Mr Cunning Architecture, in box we were wondering.


Apologies for observant rockers. I’m not indeed 70.

If we were wondering where a scrupulously scrupulously Zane Lowe things is, here’s a
jar in a form of Bring Me The Horizon.

Me The Horizon ft. Orifice Vulgatron (Foreign Beggars) – Don’t Look Down

Regardless of your thoughts on metalcore (promise, it’s a thing), this is
unequivocally impressive. Once we get over a early, rather sore lyrics with
metaphors about devils, it unexpected turns into a full-on steel opera. Of all
a songs I’ve listened so far, this feels many like one tailored specifically
to The Kid, to Drive, and to a tract and – presumably – to a climax.


Next adult it’s rockers Bastille with The Driver. Hmm. Hmmm. Trying to guess
where this could fit.

Actually, there’s copiousness of places it could go. Martinez’s measure is loaded
with tension, and Bastille goes for a same with a pared behind sound until
a chorus. That wheels out a low drum and some electronic clapping, with
terribly aspiring vocals, like HiM
circa Sacrament era

“Hey now, what’s a sobriety on your face?” “Um, we don’t really
have a choice about that actually, it’s science.”

I’m not terribly worried where this goes, it chugs along indifferently


If we go still for a while, it’s possibly since my computer’s crashed or I’ve
found a REALLY good or DESPERATELY AWFUL strain from this new soundtrack. Oh,
and also since a film doesn’t indeed start til 10.

It’s series 2, Cilla. To The Bone is a initial solo tour by Biffy Clyro’s
Simon Neil, famous here as ZZC. we see where he got a name from; I’ve
unequivocally sealed off texts as that before.

I’m a large fan of Biffy anyway since of their argent work speaking
adult about mental health
, though this proud, still strain is something
else. This could go in a motel shoot-out – ooh, that delayed suit – or for
a unequivocally on a nose matching, The Big Lift Scene, You Know What I’m Talking

(God, contemptible for anything who hasn’t seen Drive before, though unequivocally – you’ve got
time to watch it before Zane Lowe’s kicks off.)


If you’re of a stay that would rather leave Martinez’s strange measure alone,
afterwards a grant from a Scottish electro contingent CHVRCHES should ease
we in nicely.

So where could it fit into Drive? It shares a overjoyed lift of a film’s
pleasing ‘A Real Hero’, that plays while a Kid (Ryan Gosling) drives
Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her son Benicio around city in a poetic scene
that always creates me consider of a drag competition in Grease, though reduction campy. Maybe
we’ll see it there. Contrast and compare, people. Contrast and compare.

Also, both are only unequivocally poetic songs.


This is a bit sexual.


*has a crater of tea*

Sorry, only had to have a mangle from all that cold H2O we only poured

Drive’s executive Nicolas Winding Refn, is totally on board. Speaking via
web couple during a QA in London on Tuesday, he pronounced that mouth-watering others to
rescore a film was a bit like courtship other women and he found it “very
sexual”. Oh, and a bit like drugs.

“It’s like going by your drawers and anticipating a biggest pot,”
he says (NME
). “You breathe it and it’s so good again, except
opposite 5 years later.”

Sex, drugs, and if Lowe does his pursuit right, stone ‘n’ hurl will be ticked off
a list too.

Further good news: Zane Lowe has fabricated a fantastic, sundry choice of
wholly strange songs. CHVRCHES! Laura Mvula! Foals! Bring Me The
Completely, definitely opposite – well, solely CHVRCHES who
specialise in Martinez’s line of festive electro.

The full choice so we can Google a ones you’ve never listened of:

Jon Hopkins
Laura Mvula
The 1975
Bring Me The Horizon
Eric Prydz
The Neighbourhood
ZCC (aka Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro).


Evening all. I’m Kat, and like we I’ve sealed adult to declare what we wish will
be a shining reimagining of a complicated classical but, since I’m English and
fear change, worry competence spin out to be a gigantic bucket of aged bobbins: Zane
Lowe’s rescoring of a cult 2011 film Drive, on BBC Three during 10pm.

divided a critics
, though Cliff Martinez’s high electro-pop score,
bolstered by beautiful female-fronted songs by Desire, College and Riz
Ortolani, became a word-of-mouth hit. Unsurprisingly, some people weren’t
furious about Lowe’s devise when it was announced.

Including many of The Telegraph humanities desk:

Lowe has during slightest expel his net superbly wide: 13 strange songs will feature
– that’s specifically created for this project, not only B-sides that they’ve
blown a flint off. But was Drive unequivocally a film great out to be redone?

As Hayden East pronounced progressing in his estimation of Cliff
Martinez’s best scores
, “It’s an excellent effort, though a
some-more deferential pierce would’ve been to let it be.”
