From the Press Release:
Lakeshore Records will release GIRL HOUSE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on February 10th and on CD March 10, 2015. The album features the film’s original score by tomandandy (The Strangers, The Mothman Prophecies) along with an original track performed by Slaine, who portrays Loverboy in the film.
“We tried to develop a suspenseful tone while avoiding cliché. The themes of the film, while obviously contemporary, are also connected to primal human experiences; and it was dark fun for us juxtaposing terror and imbalance with the trappings of modern internet life,” said tomandandy.

GIRL HOUSE follows a beautiful young college student who, needing money for tuition, moves into a house that streams content to an X-rated website. After a deranged fan hacks in to determine the house’s location, she finds herself in a terrifying fight for her life.
“We really enjoyed the thoughtful and engaging process of working with Trevor Matthews [director] and Nick Gordon [writer],” said tomandandy. “We had meaningful dialogue from the spotting session to the ‘Loverboy’ theme at the beginning of the film until the ending. Their take on the implications of technology and society [was] very interesting, and we were excited to help accentuate that by creating music that was at times technologically influenced, yet often traditionally orchestrated. Our goal was to help to support the visceral experience they captured.”
