Blizzard’s Overwatch has had one of the most successful video game franchise launches in recent memory, thanks in part to its energetic gameplay and its uniquely diverse cast of playable characters. The game has been out for just over a month, but it’s already the subject of a new original song by Gavin Dunne a.k.a. Miracle of Sound.
Dunne’s “Get the Gang Back” is an incredibly catchy tune that primarily focuses on Winston, as he brings Overwatch back together after the team was disbanded years before. The lyrics of the song also acknowledge the previous fall of Overwatch, while mirroring the game’s relentlessly positive outlook as the new and returning heroes come together. And of course, there’s lots of Tracer in the accompanying video as well!
We’ve featured several of this Miracle worker’s original songs before, and it’s become a tradition to include a bonus song that is thematically appropriate with the primary song. In this case, we’re going with “Messing with the Best,” Dunne’s Bayonetta 2 inspired song that was released last year.
You can find both of those songs on Dunne’s Bandcamp page, which also has six albums of his Miracle of Sound music, a Heavy Metal album, instrumental albums, and other recordings. Additionally, he frequently updates his Miracle of Sound YouTube channel, which features video game and movie inspired songs, as well as a new series of videos that go behind-the-scenes of his creative process.
