The Music From BOJACK HORSEMAN’S Underwater Episode is Serene (Premiere)

Netflix’s animated hit BoJack Horseman is one of the most adventurous shows on TV today (or online, we suppose). For one, it’s the only program (that we know of) that stars an alcoholic horse-man voiced by Will Arnett, so that’s something. The show also received a lot of praise for “Fish Out Of Water,” the fourth episode of the third season that very daringly is almost completely dialogue-free.

That sort of format also leaves a lot of burden on the sound designers, composers, and everybody else involved with the show’s audio. It was all pulled off so seamlessly, which is why we’re happy to premiere “Chasing Kelsey,” which comes from the episode and appears on the upcoming BoJack Horseman: Music From the Netflix Original Series soundtrack album.

Created by composer Jesse Novak, the keyboard driven track alternates between feelings of melancholy submersion and island vibes, meaning it has the range of depth that it needs in order to match this dynamic episode.

The rest of the soundtrack is worth checking out too, considering it features the talents of Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, Michelle Branch, Grouplove, Oberhofer, and others. Check out the tracklist below, and let us know what you think of Novak’s engaging score.
