Matt states, "Bringing the musical talents of my brother and sister into this part of the filmmaking process was both rewarding and enjoyable. The song really highlights both their individual talents and showcases a powerful track for the film's heroes."
In a nod to the film's nostalgic flavour, the track has been infused with Signature Sounds of the 80's. The song, which serves to both heighten the film's theme's and action is one of the final creative elements to fall into place during post-production.
