Hear new Chromatics songs from the directorial debut of Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, Lost River, has been getting negative reviews but the soundtrack seems to be much better. Chromatics’ Johnny Jewels was in charge for the soundtrack of the film and he included two new Chromatics songs, “Yes (Love Theme From Lost River)” and “Yes (Lullaby From Lost River).” Both songs are quiet melodies, bringing listeners with the subtleness of the music and the complexity of the synths. Both Jewels and Gosling worked together for Gosling’s 2011 critically acclaimed Drive.

On a press release on his for on Lost River, Jewel explained:

When Ryan e-mailed me the script my immediate feeling was that the whole film should be sonically immersed in metal and water. I started sending Ryan music in February of 2013 for his early trips to scout locations. Ryan and I live seven minutes away from one another, so we’d watch the film at his house at night, and then we’d drive over to my house and experiment with musical ideas in my studio
