It's lifted from her soundtrack for horror thriller 'Nocturne'

Gazelle Twin has shared a track from her forthcoming score for horror film Nocturne.

'Juliet's Rage', which you can listen to above, features in the new film, which is being released as part of Amazon's 'Welcome To The Blumhouse' series. The run of films focuses on new writers and directors, with Nocturne having been written and directed by British director Zu Quirke.

"The director wanted there to be a strong appearance of feminine rage featuring heavily in the score, building around the classical pieces," says Gazelle Twin. "She wanted to use some of my existing tracks, 'Unflesh' and 'Belly Of The Beast', in a couple of scenes, so I took leave from the vocal style of 'Unflesh', which has a lot of strong chest singing inspired by Bulgarian Folksong.

"It became a motif that the music editor, Shie Rozow, weaved throughout the film for those especially fierce moments. Then there's the 'dread drones' that haunt the whole score, getting more and more intense."

Invada and Lakeshore will release Nocturne OST on December 18, 2020.
