Set in a postapocalyptic Chicago where teens are segregated by their virtues, Veronica Roth’s debut novel quickly became a sensation among teens and young adults, inspiring sequels and a budding film franchise via an 2014 adaptation by director Neil Burger. Its eclectic song-score was executive-produced by Hollywood musical mixmaster general Hans Zimmer, with textures by Dutch electronic artist/producer Junkie XL (Tom Holkenborg). Anchored by German electro-house artist Zedd’s "Find You" (featuring Matthew Koma and Miriam Bryant), it features standout new contributions from Northern Ireland’s Snow Patrol, M83, Skrillex, Pia Mia w/Chance the Rapper, Pretty Lights, and France’s Woodkid (Yoann Lemoine) deftly channeling the spirit of Morrissey. But it's the young, eclectically rooted English singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding who quickly becomes the musical focus: "We started working with songs from Ellie's album Halcyon and soon found that the texture of her music and the tone of her voice perfectly matched our film," notes director Burger. "In many ways Ellie has become the inner voice of our heroine, Tris."
Ellie Goulding's Time to Shine
The main reason I'm going to see this movie is because of Ellie Goulding. Her voice is supposed to be "interwoven" throughout the film, and if "Beating Heart" is any indication on how this film will sound, it will truly be amazing. Her other songs on this soundtrack are great too, as they are from her latest album Halcyon Days.
Okay, I’m a fan of the novel. But from what I’ve seen so far (not so much the trailers which are promising, but from that hokey romance clip), I feel like the movie will be mediocre at best. With that said, whoever decided to get Ellie on board with this soundtrack was completely spot-on! I can’t think of anyone better to voice this futuristic vision. It’s perfect. Immediately purchased Beating Heart, which gives me hope that the movie will be better because of how fantastic the song is. 10/10
