The Affair
Season 2
Music from the Showtime Original Series


Composer: Marcelo Zarvos
Label: Varèse Sarabande
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 09 December 2016

Marcelo Zarvos's score for the second season of The Affair is released through Varèse Sarabande. The TV series explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship. Noah is a New York City schoolteacher and budding novelist with a wife of twenty years and four children. Alison is a young waitress and wife from Montauk at the end of Long Island, trying to piece her life back together in the wake of a tragedy. The provocative drama unfolds separately from multiple perspectives, using the distinct memory biases of each character to tell the story...

Marcelo Zarvos delivers another 21 tracks (53 min, 03 sec) for the second season of The Affair. If you thought the music for season one was a little by-the-numbers, then there's nothing in this second collection that will change your mind. In fact, the only track that I was really struck by was the subtle, beautiful 'Alison & Cole Love'.

If you're a fan of the show, or of background atmospheric music cues, then you'll probably enjoy this collection of tracks.
