Can you share the playlist you listened to while writing The Island?
Absolutely! I listened to the full score soundtrack for The Hunger Games and to the album ‘Wind in the Wires’ by Patrick Wolf. I especially liked ‘Rue’s Theme’ from The Hunger Games and ‘Shipping News’, ‘Penzance’ and ‘Wind in the Wires’ by Patrick Wolf. The HG score put me in the right mood to write a dystopian, and the songs by Patrick Wolf have a definite ‘coastal’ feel to them so I could imagine being on an island, listening to the sounds of the sea.
