American Horror Stories Soundtrack: Bahari’s Savage has fans vibing to the series’ trailer


What are the songs featured in American Horror Stories? Ever since its premiere on Thursday, 15 July, fans of the chilling anthology have been vibing to American Horror Stories’ soundtrack. Featured in the trailer of the show, Bahari’s Savage is quickly conquering fans’ hearts and ears.

AHS is back – kind of

AHS is back, but this time every episode brings us a new horror story.

American Horror Stories premiered this week on Thursday, 17 July on Hulu

The horror-drama television show created and produced by Ryan Murphy is a spin-off series to American Horror Story, with hour-long, anthology episodes.

The first two episodes of American Horror Stories take us back home to Murder House (2011).

FX on Hulu’s anthology series mirrors the very first episodes of the long-running horror show, as a new family makes their way to the infamous Los Angeles home in the first episode, titled Rubber(wo)Man.

This time, we’re introduced to house-flippers Michael (Matt Bomer) and Troy (Gavin Creel), and their disinterested teenage daughter Scarlett (Sierra McKormick).

As the family makes renovations, darkness takes root within them.

In the second episode of the series, we meet Kaia Gerber as shameless killer Ruby, who soon becomes Scarlett’s new partner in murder and love.

  • MOVIES: Who is Ruby in American Horror Stories?

Yes, there’s a resemblance between Scarlett and Ruby, and the infamous couple Tate (Evan Peters) and Violet (Taissa Farmiga) from AHS season 1, as both couples form an unbreakable bond through their deepest traumas.

But that’s just one more reason to give American Horror Stories a go!

Trailer and teaser song Savage by Bahari intrigues fans

Chosen for the trailer and teaser of American Horror Stories, Bahari’s Savage perfectly captured the series’ romance and tension.

Featuring a slowed down version of the song, the trailer for American Horror Stories’ works as a greeting card for the show.

Bahari is an American alt-pop, electronic and dark pop musical duo, composed of Ruby Carr and Natalia Panzarella.

The band released their single Savage in 2018. This year, the duo has launched EP Forget You, which features a version of their hit song with Boston rapper/singer BIA.

American Horror Stories soundtrack nods back to the original series

Fans of American Horror Story were happily surprised by the spin-off series’ song choice.

Bernard Herrmann’s Twisted Nerve (famous for its use in Kill Bill) shrills in the background while Scarlet’s daydream takes a heinous turn, where she imagines herself choking her crush.

The series’ first episode also features Tonight You Belong To Me by Patience & Prudence, He Said She Said from CHVRCHES, Fire For You by Cannons and A Whiter Shade Of Pale from Procol Harum.

According to tune list, episode two of the horror show, titled Rubber(wo)Man Part Two, features Heads Will Roll by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Right Or Wrong by Wanda Jackson.

If you want to line up all the songs from the first two episodes and sink into the mood of the show, here’s a full list of songs which you can line up on your Spotify.
