Run, Wild by Dead Letter Chorus
The girls planning Anya’s 18th birthday party.
This scene went through a few songs, until we felt right with this one. It travels perfectly in the background of this scene, not too much energy but definitely enough. We love Dead Letter Chorus, the Australian band that melted our hearts when they played the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto with Two Hours Traffic.
People In The Hole by Catherine Feeny
Little Miss Steak’s Source / Anya rejected from University.
Catherine Feeny is an amazing songwriter – and it shows. These poetic lyrics vibe so well with Anya’s inner turmoil. We’ve been trying different things with music, going from scene to scene, and this worked out perfectly.
This Was Not My Best Day Ever by Acres of Lions
KC is feeling down, gets a job at Little Miss Steak’s.
An amazing west coast Canadian indie band, we also saw these guys perform some unrecorded material and once it is recorded, we will try to place them again. In the meantime, this song off their recorded album was so peaceful in it’s simplicity that it helped guide KC on the right path – instead of feeling sorry for yourself, get up and do something about it!
Take You Home by Final Thought
It’s Anya’s birthday and she can cry if she wants to!
A great example of a song that was in the character’s world, as source from Anya’s party, that turns into a Feature for us listeners. The lyrics are pounding and we all feel what Anya feels, desperation, loneliness and confusion, after all, it’s your party and you can cry if you want to!
Girls Like You by The Naked and Famous
Anya kisses Owen…and a little more…!
We loved The Naked & Famous so much that we decided to bring it back for another use, creating a sort of “book-end” to these two episodes, beginning with a Naked & Famous song, and ending with a Naked & Famous song. This song tells Anya’s tale, and the lyrics “don’t you know people who write songs like girls like you” hit a home-run in this moment. Although we’re pretty sure Owen doesn’t write songs…does that mean he doesn’t really like her? You decide.Tweet
