HBO’s ‘Lovecraft Country’ follows the story of Atticus Freeman as he searches for his missing father and uncovers the supernatural forces that exist within his world. The series, which is based off of Matt Ruff’s 2016 novel, explores the duality between the horrors of racism in the ‘50s and the horrors of literal monsters. The show’s composers, Raphael Saadiq and Laura Karpman, sat down with Genius’ VP of Content Strategy Rob Markman to discuss how they brought the show to life with their “gothic R&B”-inspired score.
