Regardless of how it turns out as a movie, Divergent is shaping up to have a fantastic soundtrack. Besides M83’s offering “I Need You,” there’s now “In Distress” from A$AP Rocky and French DJ Gessafelstein. The track is moody and ominous with a dark bassy beat, various synths, violins and a high pitched vocal loop. Rocky fits in quite nicely, his calm delivery and occasional slowed down vocals allowing him to stay above the chaotic backing. It’s a solid offering that stands up to the rest of Rocky’s catalogue, and lives up to its name, offering a little slice of a state of emergency to put the listener on edge. A little stress can go a long way.
Check out A$AP Rocky’s “In Distress” below and look for the Divergent soundtrack, out March 11th.
