FINNEAS, Billie Eilish’s older brother and primary collaborator, is scoring the forthcoming movie The Fallout, Variety reports and his representatives confirmed to Pitchfork. The movie, directed by Megan Park, stars Jenna Ortega as Vada, a teenager who “navigates the emotional fallout she experiences in the wake of a school tragedy.”
Peymon Maskan, the film’s music supervisor, told Variety:
FINNEAS brought a level of empathy to the characters that could only come from a composer who is from the same generation. He’s young, so he can relate to the story in a personal way, which was a big reason we considered him. But in order to tell this story with insight, it takes artistic maturity. FINNEAS is a singular artist who could offer both. Once he and the director Megan Park had their first conversation about the movie, I think we all knew he was the perfect composer for the film. His score is very much inspired by the hope and willingness to overcome such trauma, and it’s quite memorable.
