Tomorrow, June 5, ABKCO Records will digitally release the original soundtrack to the FilmDistrict feature “Safety Not Guaranteed.” Directed by Colin Trevorrow and written by Derek Connolly, the film stars Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, Jake Johnson and Karan Soni, and features an original score written and performed by Ryan Miller, the singer, guitarist and founder of the alternative rock group Guster.
The soundtrack album is bookended by “Big Machine,” the opening cut written by Miller and performed in the film by Mark Duplass’ character, with the closing cut a studio recording of the song performed by Duplass — an accomplished musician in his own right.
Other soundtrack highlights include Guster’s “Architects And Engineers,” along with Philadelphia-based indie band Summer Fiction‘s “She’s Bound To Get Hurt,” the Hoppin’ Haole Brothers’ ukulele-powered “Litter Box Beach” and Hearts On Fire‘s “Hard On Your Man” — an unreleased track from a band that included Bob “Woody” Trevorrow, the father of “Safety Not Guaranteed” director Colin Trevorrow.
“Safety Not Guaranteed” opens in New York, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle on June 8 with additional markets being added in subsequent weeks. Samples of the entire soundtrack can be heard on Amazon.
