Florist Share New Single ‘Riding Around in the Dark’ for ‘I Saw the TV Glow’ Soundtrack

    Florist have unveiled ‘Riding Around in the Dark’, their contribution to the soundtrack for Jane Schoenbrun’s upcoming horror film I Saw the TV Glow. Listen to it below.

    “Reading the script for I Saw the TV Glow immediately took me back to my own teenage years,” Florist’s Emily Sprague explained in a statement. “Growing up in a small town, never feeling like I belonged, and being obsessed with the liminal spaces between fiction and reality. I used to drive around at night and soak in these coming-of-age emotional tidal waves, dreaming about the world beyond my doorstep while simultaneously feeling a sense of ominous darkness. I wanted to try capturing that feeling in our song for the film. In many ways it defines what being young meant to me. Believing that the world is ending but somehow still living in it.”

    Out May 10, The I Saw the TV Glow soundtrack features new original music by Sloppy Jane (featuring Phoebe Bridgers), Caroline Polachek, Snail Mail, King Woman, yeule, Florist, Bartees Strange, Jay Som, L’Rain, Maria BC, the Weather Station, and more. Upon its announcement, A24 shared yeule’s cover of Broken Social Scene’s ‘Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl’. Alex G, who worked on Schoenbrun’s feature debut, We’re All Going to the World’s Fair, scored the film.
