Bobby Krilik composed the song for the Blue Beetle soundtrack. Bobby Krillik, also known by his stage name The Hexon Cloak, composed the score for Blue Beetle. His previous soundtrack credits include the Ari Aster films Midsomer and Beau Are Afraid, the TV series Snowpiercer, and the video game Returnal.
He has also produced an album for Goldfrapp and collaborated on tracks with the likes of Father John Misty, Khalid, and Troye Sivan.
Speaking (via BusinessWire) about composing the soundtrack for Blue Beetle, Krilik said: “It’s always been a dream of mine to write the music for a superhero film. Ángel explained to me how he wanted to make one that felt different, something non-traditional that would make an impact.
“Working with him was an effortless and truly joyful collaboration. He pushed me to make music that was at once unique, challenging, and expansive, whilst also being able to exist within a superhero story. I’m incredibly proud of the score, and feel it marks a new chapter for me as a composer.”
