Ólafur Arnalds : Broadchurch OST

Back in April, Broadchurch the TV series was a revelation. A gripping, tense drama to rival those clever whodunnits the Scandinavians have been feeding us for several years now that dealt with the subsequent fall outs more than the event of the murder itself. Like all good soundtracks, Ólafur Arnalds’ contribution to the show is directional. The main theme is dark, brooding and oppressive while each character’s theme (sadly not all included in this EP) is reflective and grieving in its own way. In isolation, it’s a splendid snapshot of a remarkable series.
