Looking for an escape from her recurring nightmares, 18-year-old Sarah (Julia Sarah Stone) submits to a university sleep study, but soon realizes she’s become the conduit to a frightening new discovery. Dreams twist and nightmares come true in this mind-altering new work of science-fiction from Anthony Scott Burns (Our House) that haunts the space between wakefulness and sleep. Come True is an unforgettable cinematic dream well worth the submersion.
the soundtrack includes a mix of original music by duo Electric Youth as well as additional score music composed in partnership with Come True director Anthony Scott Burns under his music-making alias
The soundtrack was originally introduced with lead single Modern Fears an original track by Electric Youth which features as one of the film’s most resonating music moments and showcases the composing duo’s signature blend of melodic strings and synthesized vocals. For the larger musical universe of Come True, Electric Youth and Pilotpriest have crafted a score of moving live strings, ethereal synthesizers and emotive vocals, with the 15-track collection also including Electric Youth’s original title song Come True as well as new versions of previously recorded songs re-worked for several of the film’s pivotal scenes.
Of the soundtrack, Electric Youth says, “Working with Anthony Scott Burns again meant working with a director so much on the same page as us, someone who likes to work from feeling the same way we do. To evoke the deeply visceral and immersive quality of the film, we started on the music before the script was even finished, so that the film would be completed with much of the music already a part of its DNA. That allowed the emotional and internal core of our main character Sarah to be expressed in a way it wouldn’t have otherwise. We created much of the score in direct musical collaboration with the director (under his music making alias Pilotpriest), a unique opportunity that made for a deeply personal result, for what is a deeply personal film for Anthony. The musical result was something that feels internal and ancient, something otherworldly but from within.”
