Soundtrack

Moristoun OST

Music plays a key role in Moristoun, from the agonies McSorely suffers as a sadistic Clyde 2 DJ inflicts torture on him during the height of his insomia to the education in country music he receives after becoming a regular at the Tortured Soul.

We've cobbled together a very much unofficial soundtrack for the book on Spotify, 20 tracks that give you a real taste of life on the island. Eighteen of these songs are mentioned in the book and they are bookmarked by two others that reflect the ethos of Moristoun. Here's the full track listing with their YouTube Videos thrown in for good measure.
