Detective is music for and inspired by cinema. Detective No. 1 particularly draws from genre film, and composers like Bernard Herrman, John Carpenter, Angelo Badalamenti, Brian Eno, Isaac Hayes, Goblin and more, to weave together texture and narrative into emotionally driven instrumental music. It’s a record for fans of horror, sci-fi, true crime, suspense, and blaxploitation. But more than simply paying homage, it looks to build upon these themes and archetypes to create a sound that is both familiar and yet thoroughly modern.
