Shackled – Original Soundtrack

Shackled is an atmospheric psychological thriller set in a 1950s circus in Louisiana, starring Emilia Clarke & Hadley Fraser.

Held captive by a circus, Malu (Emilia Clarke) is frantically rescued from her shackles by her husband. As she waits anxiously in the darkness for her chance to escape, a disturbing truth she’s hidden away seeps back in.

Composers Alexandra Benedict & Tris Taylor worked with award-winning director Nour Wazzi (Habibti) to develop a score that reflected and deepened the world of her psychological thriller – using calliope, gypsy violin and circus percussion to reflect its setting; and accordion, music box and soprano voice to bring out the atmosphere and speak Malu’s feelings in a script that has very little dialogue.
