Exclusive: Kreng Brings Sinister, Contained Rage to Lowlife

One of the most talked-about movies that has been making its way through the film festival circuit is Ryan Prows’ Lowlife. A combination of stories from an addict, an ex-con, and a luchador, the film’s Tarantino-esque presentation is energetic, chaotic, bizarre, and delightfully outlandish. To keep a constant thread throughout, Prows enlisted the musical abilities of composer Pepijn Caudron, aka Kreng (Camino, Cooties, “Monster!”).

Today, we want to give you a taste of the intensity that Kreng’s music brings to the film by premiering the title track, “Lowlife”. Pulsating with barely contained rage and bristling with ferocity, the song is like a powder keg that is mere inches away from a struck match, the anticipation of explosive violence thick and palpable.

Kreng’s soundtrack gets a digital release this Friday via Lakeshore Records. You can pre-order it right here. You can see Lowlife in select theaters this Friday (screening list here).

What happens when you throw together a fallen Mexican wrestler with serious rage issues, a just-out-of-prison ex-con with a regrettable face tattoo, and a recovering junkie motel owner in search of a kidney? That’s the premise of the berserk, blood-spattered, and wickedly entertaining feature debut from Ryan Prows. Set amidst the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, Lowlife zigzags back and forth in time as it charts how fate—and a ruthless crime boss—connects three down-and-out reprobates mixed up in an organ harvesting scheme that goes from bad to worse to off-the-rails insane.”
