AUSTIN AUDIO: THE MUSIC OF FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
That atmospheric music you hear during each episode of the television show Friday Night Lights is the work of Austin-based instrumental band Explosions in the Sky. They also provided the entire soundtrack for the 2004 Friday Night Lights film (although it remains a mystery why none of their tracks appear on the actual CD from the TV series).
The music of Explosions in the Sky sets the perfect emotional tone each week on Friday Night Lights, and I love listening to them while I’m writing. I highly recommend that you buy any of their four albums, or at least download the following songs on iTunes:
- First Breath After a Coma
- Remember Me as a Time of Day
- Six Days at the Bottom of the Ocean
- Your Hand in Mine
