Pulsating with Carpenter-esque lows and an almost sensual aesthetic, the song is clearly a build-up to something intensely physical and potentially violent. Taking its time, the song makes the best of its 3+ minute length, filling every moment with just the right amount of intensity. – Jonathan Barkan, Dread Central
Listen to “Lisa Undead” by HUMANS (Peter Ricq and Robbie Slade) now at Dread Central! The track comes from the forthcoming Dead Shack (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), available on all digital music services on Friday, February 16 via Lakeshore Records!

Critics have called Alice Lowe’s new slasher flick, Prevenge, everything from maniacal to funny to subversive and brilliant. I’m happy to report the same praise applies to the film’s score, a compelling collection of giallo-referencing, synth-driven cues created by the talented duo Toydrum (UNKLE folk Pablo Clements and James Griffith). – Vehlinggo
Vehlinggo reviews the score to Prevenge, Alice Lowe’s brilliant new film, opening this week in select NY/LA theaters, and you can read the full story here. Have you listened to the entire album? Let us know in the comments below!

The film opens in select NY/LA theaters on March 24. PREVENGE is now playing in UK theaters (get tickets).
PREVENGE benefits from a ’70s-throwback synth score by Toydrum (Pablo Clements and James Griffith) that evokes vintage Argento at his most lurid.” – Hollywood Reporter
“Our heroine’s raddled state, meanwhile, is aptly reflected in the deliberately unpolished nature of the filmmaking — of which with the icy, stabbing synths of Toydrum’s excellent score are the most expressive asset.” – Variety
Lakeshore Records is pleased to present the North American digital release of Prevenge (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), featuring the synth-heavy score by Toydrum (Pablo Clements and James Griffith). See full album details below. Grab the UK release now via Invada Records.
