Today on underground we are going to look at a soundtrack that just like that game is based on, was truly underrated, and never got the praise it deserved and game and soundtrack is Gravity Rush.
The game was released exclusively on the PlayStation Vita in 2012 and was later re-released on the PlayStation 4 in 2015. The game design, scenario, art and it’s environment were and still is a marvel to this day and the music is also marvelous and it is enchanting.
The music was composed by Kohei Tanaka, who is famous for composing music for famous anime series such as Gunbuster, Sakura Wars, and many of the One Piece films and video games series such as Sakura Wars series and Alundra. The music in Gravity Rush has this 1970 orchestral melody with a hint of French jazz. Tracks such as “Gravity Daze,” “Old Town,” “Pleasure Quarter,” “Downtown,” and “Dousu Shinundakara” shows off Tanaka talent of mixing and fusion two sounds and turn it into gold. While the soundtrack does have its great moments there are other moments that work in its favor to set the tone and heart pacing moments take for example “The Farthest King.”
While being successful, in 2017 Gravity Rush 2 was released worldwide, and like the first game, it was wonderful and a soundtrack that was great even better than the first one, but sadly was overlooked by many but praised by critics.
