LISTEN: Stream Mica Levi's Insane 'Under the Skin' Score in Its Entirety

Jonathan Glazer’s “Under The Skin” is unlike any film you’ve ever seen and, fitfully, its score by Mica Levi of indie band Micachu & The Shapes sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard, either. You can stream the whole album now via Pitchfork.

Glazer’s film about an alien sent to Earth to inhabit the pin-up girl body of Scarlett Johansson is a disorienting, terrifyingly nebulous thing of beauty. And, like the experience of being picked up by an alien Scarlett Johansson in a white van and then left to incinerate in an inky pool of blackness, it’s a beguiling and beautiful nightmare. 

In her off-kilter, prickling, unnerving score, young English composer Levi evokes this atmosphere completely. Head to Pitchfork and listen for yourself. 

Here’s our review of “Under the Skin, out April 4 via A24 Films.
