If there is one thing that we can all love from Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding is the fantastic music and soundtrack and its perfect use of it. The soundtrack is a combination of indie and electric sounds that compliment the environment and protagonist Sam Bridges’ introspective journey. One of the bands that Kojima used for Death Stranding’s soundtrack and its first trailer at E3 2016 is Low Roar. The track I’ll keep coming by Low Roar sound in the background of the trailer, while Sam Bridges was shown naked cradling a baby in the middle of a breach. Netless to said, it was an impactful event not only for the public but for the band itself too.
Prior to Death Stranding
The band is a post-Rock and folk-ish group based in Reykjavik Iceland. Before Death Stranding happened, the band was in a really low moment in its career. In a recent interview with VG247 lead singer of Low Roar, Ryan Karanzija explained how they were even recording their music on a laptop before the trailer release. It was at this point that they were surprised to receive an email from Sony asking to use the song I’ll Keep Comming. However, they were not notified for what they were going to use the song. Yet, because of the precarious situation, they accepted the offer. Later on, they discover that it was for Death Stranding.
Thanks to this, thousands and thousands of fans were sharing their love for the song in the trailer. Later on, the band had dinner with Kojima twice since then and composed most of the soundtrack of Death Stranding. Thanks to this, Low Roar is getting back on track with band tours, and playing their music to all of their old and recently acquired fans. All these thanks to one fan, Hideo Kojima.
