The Haxan Cloak (Bobby Krlic) composed the score to Ari Aster’s latest cult horror film Midsommar which was released to huge critical acclaim in July.
Aster said he wrote the film’s script while listening to the Haxan Cloak’s last album—2013’s Excavation—so he always intended music to be a big part of it. Krlic’s score is diverse stylistically, and uses many Scandinavian folk instruments, marking a departure from his normal electronic textures.
The soundtrack is now available to stream.
