The Defenders Season 1 Soundtrack

Published on EST

The Defenders is finally here and with it, a fantastic soundtrack that manages to sample each of the four characters personalities and backgrounds perfectly in the eight episodes.

Season 1 of the show released on August 18th bringing with it eight episodes where Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Daredevil are brought together to fight the hand. As a result, there are lots of high octane action sequences that bring with it the fantastic work of the orchestra. With any luck, Netflix will release a soundtrack with all of the orchestral pieces.
