The Lure
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Artists: Various
Label: Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 18 August 2017

Lakeshore Records release the soundtrack to The Lure. In this bold, genre-defying horror-musical mashup a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters are drawn ashore in an alternate '80s Poland to explore the wonders and temptations of life on land. Their tantalizing siren songs and otherworldly aura make them overnight sensations as nightclub singers. In a visceral twist on Hans Christian Andersen's original Little Mermaid tale, one sister falls for a human, and as the bonds of sisterhood are tested, the lines between love and survival get blurred. A savage coming-of-age fairytale with a catchy new-wave soundtrack, lavishly grimy sets, and outrageous musical numbers...

The Lure soundtrack is only really going to appeal to those who have seen the movie and fallen in love with it. On its own merits, the tracks are a little... well... weird.

The album contains 23 tracks (50 min, 23 sec) ranging from the ethereal 'Mermaid Calling' tracks to the strange drone of 'Policewoman'.

While it won't appeal to everyone, those who get what this is all about will get a huge kick out it.
