OKAY - HOLD YOUR GIFS FOR A WHILE. CLOSE YOUR EYES, IT’S TIME TO LISTEN.
FUCKING LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF SERIES 3. WHAT YOU HEAR ARE NEW PIECES, NEW MELODIES, NEW TRACKS - IT’S A COMPLETELY NEW SOUND BUT STILL “SHERLOCK”.
But it’s darker. Oh, it’s so much darker. Just that dusky, heavy, pulsating and dramatic dubstep thingy from the launch trailer? Oh man, season 3 is gonna be grievous. I mean, there are freaking apocalypse choirs in the soundtrack.
And the “thrill-of-the-chase” track, oh yeah, those ferocious strings definitely make the blood pump through your veins. But it’s not only dark and serious, it’s beautiful too, almost noble. Listen to that pompous, magnificent masterpiece when Sherlock gazes over his London. It’s massive. It’s grand.
And then, we have John’s old melancholic theme. It’s heartbreaking. It hasn’t changed much I believe - oh - except that hopeful and gleeful new ending? Which is perfectly synchronized with Mary’s appearance in the interactive trailer?
And the last sound clip is from this vid where Michael Price gives us some hints from the soundtrack. It’s spooky, thrilling and awesome. And oh jesus christ his second track is just killing me. So much feel. I can’t. Series 3 is going to be really emotional and we better get our shock blankets ready, now.
