Genres

Horror film soundtrack label Death Waltz mostly focus on reissuing classics by the likes of John Carpenter: with 2016’s The Greasy Strangler, they opt for a more recent film – but given how well the American horror comedy was received at the Sundance film festival, it already aspires to a similar cult status.

Composed by Fuck Buttons’ Andrew Hung, the diverse soundtrack complements the incalculable plot of a father-son duo serial killing while covered in grease. The film's greasiness is reflected in morphing textures, evoking associations with liquids of varying densities (take ‘Gulp!’s’ sawtooth pattern), while its 80s aesthetics are mirrored in chiptune vocals (‘Oily Grapefruit’) and plastic synths that sound like toy keyboards (‘Get On The Greasy’). A postmodern gibberish of 60s style psychedelia and goofy electronic pop, Hung uses children’s song melodies to create a perfidious universe of sounds, poignantly capturing the visuals' absurdity. Frighteningly catchy.
