London Grammar for "Game Of Thrones"

Posted by

Under The Radar magazine says it best; “We’re not even going to pretend to be cool about how much we love this combination. London Grammar. INXS. Game of Thrones. (Head explodes.)”

If you’re not yet caught up or don’t have the subscription privilege to follow along with the world-famous television epic, Game of Thrones, you’ve been missing out on some mega musical cameos in the recently begun and highly anticipated fourth season.

It seems the show’s masterful screenwriting, excellent cast, and incredible production have finally sparked a fire large enough for the music industry to see. The season’s trailer use of hot British up-and-comers London Grammar should have apparently been a foreshadowing for the rest of the season.

Only in its second episode, GoT unveiled a long-rumored performance by Sigur Rós, which naturally raises the anticipation for what’s to come musically throughout the rest of the season. We also wonder about the licensing arrangements for these types of placements, but since we’ll likely never know specifics we’ll have to settle with enjoying them as they occur!

You can watch Game of Thrones Sunday nights on HBO, and hear the Sigur Rós track on YouTube.

Music supervision, or matching music to all the different mediums from films to ring tones, is one of the fastest-growing careers in the music industry, but finding the winning song for a national ad campaign or compiling a platinum movie soundtrack takes more than just good taste.
