Based on the best-selling graphic novels written by Brian K. Vaughan, and illustrated by Cliff Chiang, Prime Video’s new sci-fi adventure series Paper Girls tells the story of four girls — Erin, Mac, Tiffany, and KJ – who become caught in the midst of a war between time travelers while out delivering newspapers the morning after Halloween. Transported from 1988 to the year 2019, the girls come face to face with their future selves, and must set out on a high-stakes journey to return to their present and change the course of their future.
This project is the latest in multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Bobby Krlic’s extensive resume, which includes both critically-acclaimed, award-winning film, television and gaming scores. Throughout the album’s 17 tracks, Krlic has crafted a dark and atmospheric soundscape that straddles the series’ two timelines, utilizing foreboding synths and tension-building instrumentation to capture the thrilling onscreen story.
Of the soundtrack, composer Bobby Krlic says, “The world of Paper Girls is something I’ve wanted to explore musically for a long time. It was such a pleasure to have something so rich and nuanced to work to and be inspired by. I wanted to encapsulate the spirit of youth, not only in its boundless energy, but the naivety, trepidation and exploration that comes with the transitory period of childhood. The show and the performances encapsulate that beautifully, and it’s my hope that the music will do the same.”
Starring Camryn Jones, Riley Lai Nelet, Sofia Rosinsky, and Fina Strazza, all eight episodes of Paper Girls are now playing on Prime Video
