Original score from the 2010 comendy feature film directed by John Stalberg Jr, starring Adrien Brody, Sean Marquette and Matt Bush.
THE STORY: A high school valedictorian who gets baked with the local stoner finds himself the subject of a drug test. The situation causes him to concoct an ambitious plan to get his entire graduating class to face the same fate, and fail.
THE SCORE: The music is by The Newton Brothers, an up and coming film scoring duo whose other credits include the acclaimed indie drama Detachment as well as the recent action movies Hijacked and Setup. Infused with a lot of rhythm and movement, the music for High School features a lot of driving, guitar-based tracks, as well as some quirky underscoring (especially the latin flavored music for Adrien Brody’s character, Psycho Ed) and more ambient thematic material. Our digital album release coincides with the US DVD release of the film.
