"Getting the chance to score Emily Dickinson's world was really exciting to us from the start, as what Alena Smith (creator, showrunner and executive producer) has created with this show is really special and unique," say composers Drum & Lace and Ian Hultquist of the soundtrack. "Incorporating modern musical sensibilities against the contrasting setting of the 1850s was a thrilling challenge, and we had a fun time pulling it together. For the score, we were inspired by legendary performers such as The Prodigy and Missy Elliott, but also gave nods to the current musical landscape with artists like Billie Eilish and Lizzo. The use of vocals in the score gave us a way to tap into Emily's mind and externalize her thoughts and struggles through music."
