How does it sound when you’re slowly being driven insane? Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to bring you a soundtrack that aurally illustrates this in great detail in the form of Giona Ostinelli’s mesmerising score to DARLING. Written and directed by Mickey Keating (POD) and starring Lauren Ashley Carter (THE WOMAN) and genre favourite Sean Young (BLADE RUNNER), the film is a psychological horror in the vein of pictures like such Roman Polanski’s REPULSION, and features a young woman who becomes a caretaker of an isolated New York mansion and is driven slowly insane while walking the corridors.
One-off numbered pressing of 500 on 180 gram White Vinyl with Black & Grey twisted stripe. Housed inside a 425gsm sleeve.

Giona Ostinelli’s score is an integral part of DARLING, as much a soundscape as a score and exploring the echoing rooms of the house as well as the inner workings of Darling’s mind. It’s a terrifying experience, with a veritable assault on the senses using a wide variety of techniques, including insectoid strings, wild and solo piano, hammering percussion, metallic and electronics, along with echoes of other music in fragments, perhaps representing a past long gone. It’s an intense and fierce work, certainly not for the faint-hearted – and perhaps here should be a word of warning. Listening to DARLING just might drive you insane.
