 New Music: Air and Oneohtrix Point Never contribute new tracks to Boss

Following Jim James’ footsteps, both Air and Oneohtrix Point Never have contributed original songs to the Starz original series Boss. Air’s “Express” recalls past scores by Stewart Copeland (Wall Street), while Oneohtrix’s “Ceiba” seems to take a page from Hans Zimmer (Inception) or Elliot Goldenthal (Heat). You can listen to them here.

Boss stars Kelsey Grammer as Tom Kane, “the mayor of Chicago who has recently been diagnosed with a degenerative neurological disorder.” “Express” and “Ceiba” respectively soundtrack the third and fourth episodes of the second season, and both sound perfect for any Kelsey Grammer-taking-over-Chicago-like situation.

Other musicians, including Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis and Shearwater, have contributed original songs to the show’s episodes, which air on Friday night.
