Action Thriller | Surf Rock


Campy retro surf rock action thriller music from the 1950s through 1970s for action thriller sequences where suspense, tension and excitement are foremost. This music is generally a fusion of Surf and Rock and occasionally with other styles mixed in such as Jazz and RnB. Utilizing Surf Rock for thrillers is a very kitschy production technique often seen in Quentin Tarantino productions.
