Milan Records has released PAPER GIRLS (AMAZON ORIGINAL SERIES SOUNDTRACK), an album of music by Bobby Krlic for Amazon Studios’ new series based on the best-selling graphic novels.
Available everywhere now, the 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 as well as a successful career releasing music as The Haxan Cloak and working alongside artists like Björk, Father John Misty, Khalid, Troye Sivan and more.
Set in 1988, Paper Girls tells the story of four girls caught in the midst of a war between time travelers and transported to the year 2019 where they set out on a high-stakes journey to return to their present and change the course of their future. 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. All eight episodes of Paper Girls are available exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
Of the soundtrack, composer Bobby Krlic had the following to say:
“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.”
ABOUT PAPER GIRLS
In the early morning hours after Halloween 1988, four paper girls—Erin, Mac, Tiffany, and KJ—are out on their delivery route when they become caught in the crossfire between warring time-travelers, changing the course of their lives forever. Transported into the future, these girls must figure out a way to get back home to the past, a journey that will bring them face-to-face with the grown-up versions of themselves. While reconciling that their futures are far different than their 12-year-old selves imagined, they are being hunted by a militant faction of time-travelers known as the Old Watch, who have outlawed time travel so that they can stay in power. In order to survive, the girls will need to overcome their differences and learn to trust each other, and themselves.
