Killing Eve / Coloured vinyl soundtracks

The soundtracks to both seasons of Killing Eve, the acclaimed British spy thriller TV series, will be released as limited edition ‘splatter’ coloured vinyl in December.

Fresh from her success from Fleabag, Phoebe Waller-Bridge was the lead writer for the first series which introduced us to British intelligence agent Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) who becomes dangerously obsessed with assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer).

The music was an important ingredient and DJ turned film composer David Holmes worked with music supervisor Catherine Grieves to develop a mixture of songs from his band Unloved together with a pick ‘n’ mix selection of suitable pop songs. The approach was explained to BBC 6 Music, below:

Both soundtracks come as limited gatefold vinyl packages with series one pressed on clear vinyl/red splatter and series two on red vinyl with black splatter. These are available on CD with Amazon in the UK offering an exclusive 2CD edition with both series.

CD and vinyl formats are available direct from the PIAS online store as well from the usual channels detailed in the SDE the widget below.

Both Killing Eve soundtracks will be released on 13 December 2019

    Pity Jeanne-Marie Sens ‎– ‘Tape Tape Tape’ from her 1974 Jeu De Mots LP (used in series 2) is not on this comp. The LP itself has never been reissued as far as I know. Here the song on Youtube

    Can’t remember the last time I really wanted to buy a soundtrack album. But this is certainly an exception. Shame Tim Abbott finds the music “incredibly irritating”, but I’d say that’s still better than having background music that’s so bland and unobtrusive that it completely passes you by. That often seems to be the case in TV series (less so in movies). I guess I’ve always been a lover of foreground music, rather than background music (Sparks, Cardiacs and They Might Be Giants are amongst my fave bands!). So I much prefer songs that really stick out and get your attention, for better or for worse. I guess it can be a bit distracting from the action while you’re watching Killing Eve, but it certainly stands up as music I’d want to listen to outside of the programme.

    • Tim Abbott says:

      Trust me, Sparks and Cardiacs are two of my faves too, but as I wrote that comment below, I started wondering why it was irritating; could it be that it was just too obtrusive? I remember it seeming really loud whenever there was a musical moment. Can’t say I’m gonna try and find out though.

      And just to fight my corner a bit, there’s plenty of good ‘background’ library music that’s great to listen to away from its natural home; Trunk Records have just put out a pink 7″ single with a bunch of beds for adverts that are very listenable on their own, and there’s plenty of other releases like that!

      • Stuart Ansell says:

        Hey, isn’t it lovely to have 2 cardiacs shout outs in the same comments page? Now THERE’S a band that deserve some deluxe versions, as and when Tim is up to it….

        No need to fight your corner – taste is ephemeral and if the music annoys you there could be any number of reasons, not always rational and you don’t have to rationalise or justify it! Everyone has their little hill on which to die (don’t mention Eddie Vedder’s voice to me… I have no rational justification, Pearl Jam are a great band but his voice makes me want to chew my own arm off)

        You weren’t being disparaging about anyone else for liking it, merely expressing an opinion. Which is fine.

        I’m going to listen to All That Glitters Is A Mare’s Nest. Enjoy your day everyone!

    Nice looking records, and have been a fan of David Holmes since This Film’s Crap Let’s Slash The Seats came out, but the soundtrack to Killing Eve made me want to put a boot through my telly. I really enjoyed it otherwise, but there was something incredibly irritating about the music. So, it’s a pass from me. I’m sure everyone will be heartbroken…

    No Jodie Comer picture disc? That’s get pride of place on my shelf…lol

    This is great soundtrack music for a great series, and while I don’t generally buy soundtrack albums, this is an exception.

    I’ll also just note that “Killing Eve” introduced me to a great artist, Fabienne Delsol, whose “I’m Gonna Haunt You” is a great track, and led me to buy the album that song is on, and one of her others (so far).

    She follows in the style of the French “Yeh-Yeh” girls, but the performances are totally modern. Well, worth checking into

    Subtle! (Great music though)

  7. Ashley Plath says:
