Night Teeth
Soundtrack from the Netflix Film


Composers: Drum & Lace and Ian Hultquist
Label: Milan Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 20 October 2021

Milan Records releases the soundtrack from the Netflix horror film Night Teeth, by Drum & Lace (aka Sofia degli Alessandri-Hultquist) and Ian Hultquist (husband and wife). In the film directed by Adam Randall, college student Benny earns extra cash by chauffeuring two young women around Los Angeles. But he soon discovers they have an insatiable lust for blood, forcing him to make a life-changing decision. Previous Drum & Lace scores include the thriller Deadly Illusions, the series Dickinson, and the Amazon series I Know What You Did Last Summer. Ian Hultquist is a composer and producer but began his career in music as a founding member of the band Passion Pit. He has worked on the Netflix horror Rattlesnake, the Peacock series One Of Us Is Lying, and the feature Die in a Gunfight. For this one they ‘landed’ between Electronica, Synth-Pop and Hip-Hop. The soundtrack is available for download...

Track List: 'Come Alive'; 'The 3 Rules'; 'Crossing the Line'; 'Good Morning Mr Perez'; 'Jays Knife'; 'Good Evening, Ms Moreau'; 'Make it Icy'; 'No Turning Back'; 'A Bag Full of Money'; 'And Please, Drink Responsibly'; 'No More Funny Games'; 'Victor'; 'Long Live the King'; 'The Dark Prince of Gossip'; 'Go a Little Crazy'; '3 Kings'; 'You See the Light Now'; 'Rosso Puros'; 'Venice'; 'I Don’t Want You Like That'; 'Take a Bite'; 'Draining Chamber'; 'Have You Ever Tasted Fresh Blood'; 'Nights Over'; 'Burnt'; 'Turning'; 'The Morning After'; and 'Bookworm'.

The opening track by The Kid Daytona, Mez & Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. is not the most auspicious of starts, as I dislike Hip-Hop and Rap with a vengeance. It doesn’t even sound like it’s in sync with the music. Fortunately, the other tracks are instrumental music and, whilst a few of them sound remarkably similar with light synthesiser, low bass and rudimentary Electronica, many of the others are actual tunes seemingly influenced by such sources such as Kraftwerk and the many exciting sounds from the late 1970s and early 1980s. Of course, it’s much more basic than the likes of Gary Numan, Ultravox, The Human League and Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark – but it holds your interest… just. Adding the sound of early drum machines to many of the tracks is just plain annoying, however. There are some notable exceptions to the blandness of similarity. Sampled sound effects work quite well, and 'Victor' reminds me of 1980s computer game music (which they still sometimes use on platform games!).

I’m a lover of certain Electronica; it can work really well on soundtracks. But this one utilises the same techniques played at different tempos. Although okay, it doesn’t incorporate nearly enough variation. There is no light and shade; no real emotions come through, making it come across as variations on a theme.
