Alex Turner's Filmic Debut: Submarine Soundtrack
Share This Article:
Submarine is the new film from first-time director Richard Ayoade, most famous for his character work in television shows The Mighty Boosh and The IT Crowd, but also a man with a strong resume behind the camera as well. He may not have directed a feature film before Submarine but has worked extensively in the music video scene, with Kasabian, Vampire Weekend and the Arctic Monkeys to name a few of the acts he’s worked alongside. It is the Monkeys, in fact, that have propelled him to the top of the list of exciting-new-British-directors, with his work on the unique and edgy At the Apollo live DVD remaining a highlight of his career thus far. It is no surprise, then, that Ayoade turned to Artic Monkey's frontman Alex Turner for the score of his first ‘proper’ film. But, what can we expect from Submarine's soundtrack? Is the six-track collection just a movie score? An Alex Turner solo work? A hint at what the Monkey’s own fourth album, Suck it and See, will sound like?
