So before I begin this series of posts, let me explain why I decided to add music to a film blog. As an editor, rhythm is extremely important. And just like a drummer, knowing rhythm and keeping a continuous beat is a well-practiced skill and talent. In addition, I love music just as much as I love film and I find a film is always best enhanced by the perfect soundtrack.
I’m going to begin this series with the highlight of an artist. I’m always looking for new and interesting sound - ironically, a lot of the “new” sound nowadays is just a regurgitation of older classic sounds with a fusion and/or twist to the genre.
The artist I’m featuring this week is a band called Wild Belle. This brother & sister duo play a gorgeous mixture of ska, jazz, rock and reggae. Check them out: Wild Belle - Keep You.
