It's not often that a film's soundtrack receives as much buzz as the film itself, months before it is even released! Yet this seems to be the case with Cherrybomb and the soundtrack's composer, David Holmes. Holmes, a long time friend of directors Glen Leyburn and Lisa Barros D'Sa, has collaborated with the duo several times beforehand.
But who exactly IS David Holmes, and what makes his music so unique?
Simply put, he is Belfast's "resident musical prodigy" whose career in music has seen him do everything from DJing, composing soundtracks, and putting out solo albums. Unlike some musicians who stick with one sound,
Holmes is not afraid to experiment. "Iâ€™m into music first and foremost, rather than just one style, so my next
record will be completely different again. I can guarantee you that now," he is quoted as telling EQ Magazine. Also, if you've ever seen any of the wildly popular Oceans 11-13 films, the credit for their awesome soundtrack also goes to this man!
So now what to expect for Cherrybomb's soundtrack? In a recent interview, Holmes mentions the likes of the F*ck
Buttons and fellow DJ, Andrew Weatherall. The Twin Kranes has also been a name that's popped up in the blogosphere. If the sounds of these musicians and bands are anything to go by, then Cherrybomb's soundtrack is sure to be a must have, and we're as eager as anyone to see how it compliments the film!
