One of the things the original Life is Strange has come to be known for is its emotional score and soundtrack. Of course, this was something that had to be emulated for the game’s upcoming prequel, Life is Strange: Before the Storm. It was recently revealed that the indie pop/folk rock band Daughter has composed the entire score for the game.
Daughter is a band from London, England that currently has two albums, four EPs and several singles. The score that they wrote for Before the Storm will be available on an album called Music from Before the Storm, which will be available to purchase from digital retailers starting on September 1, the day after the first episode of the game is set to premiere. The album is currently available to pre-order.
In addition to writing the score, Daughter will be providing a few songs for the game’s soundtrack as well, alongside other licensed tracks from other artists. Fans recognized Daughter’s song “Numbers” from the Before the Storm E3 trailer and the band also announced today (August 8) that a new song entitled “Burn it Down” will also be on the soundtrack.
The first episode of Before the Storm, entitled “Awake,” will be available on August 31 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
