Katie Crutchfield aka Waxahatchee has revealed that she’s written some music for the soundtrack for a new animated show called El Deafo, which will premiere on Apple TV+ on January 7. It’s based on the graphic novel of the same name by Cece Bell. Crutchfield says:
“I’m so happy to finally announce an amazing project I had the honor of being a part of. Last year I wrote some original music for a new show on Apple TV+ called El Deafo, based on the book of the same name by a true hero, Cece Bell. Myself along with Rob Barbato spent a few months arranging and recording these tunes and it was an amazing experience all around.”
She’s also shared a song called “Tomorrow”, which is as positive and upbeat as you’d expect for a youthful show about overcoming your perceived weaknesses. It still possesses plenty of Waxahatchee magic, as Crutchfield has a perfect voice to embody that discovery of inner strength, while the straightforward pop arrangement is imbued with excellent synths and other colourful adornments.
