The Music Of The New HBO Young Pope

Michael Crescitelli

Published

on

The show follows the tale of young Pope Pious XIII as he dictates the direction of the Catholic Church from the opaque office in Vatican City as the first ever elected American pope. A show with many aesthetically pleasing portraits of the papacy, there are artistic over tones that dominate the screen to award the show applause for creative visuals and patterns. To coincide with the glamorous presentation of religious fashion and intriguing camera angles, the final medium to compliment The Young Pope is also its most compelling; the music.

A narrative intertwining religious politics with zealous reformation, the unorthodox radicalization of Pope Pious XIII is only matched by the obscure soundtrack attached to key scenes prevalent throughout the series. During the series there were song choices that seemed diametrically opposed to the suggested tone of the script; hostile dialogues intensified by electronic deep house(as seen below) and emotional backdrops contrasted with poetic instrumentals, and every kind of eclectic genre carefully injected in between. Electricity of words becomes intensified with the low-key bass music injected for added severity.

The striking sound of the series can only be described as eclectic, with no linear sequence to connect the dots. The sound selection intensifies every scene and by initially appearing random, the progression of the show and continued appearance of various sounds allow the show to adapt to its already eclectic plot.

The included playlist below is sonically extensive that makes the appearance of Flume and Jefferson Airplane on the same playlist sound not just normal, but preferred.

NEW YORK CITY – The American Dream, it’s just that simple.

It is every foreigner’s idea of success. Only found in the “Land of Opportunity”. Making it into the U.S. legally is only half the journey.

Widely regarded as one of the breakout songs of the summer, ‘No Promises’ has received a ton of attention and play through. Not to mention, Demi Lovato & Cheat Codes always seem to possess a major gift in being able to constantly top the charts, so it’s not a surprise to many. However, when talking about surprises there’s no way we can forget about Tropix. They exploded onto the scene with a major remix for Two Freinds ‘Out Of Love‘ which took the internet by storm. In fact, it may happen all over again, as Demi Lovato & Cheat Codes ‘No Promises’ receives a signature sounding Tropix remix.

Tropix’s distinct new sound resonates throughout the remix. From the light and shimmering synth plucks, extensive use of catchy vocal chops, swinging hat work, and harmonic use of gliding keys, Tropix really solidify this as a must listen remix. Most importantly, is it even complete without Tropix’s signature iPhone sample tones? A rhetorical question of course, but I’ll answer it anyway, of course not.
