With the conclusion of The Banner Saga series quickly approaching, Stoic shared a video of the talented musicians responsible for the series’ amazing soundtrack discussing their time working together.

Violinist Taylor Davis and vocalists Peter Hollens and Malukah share how much they loved working with composer Austin Wintory and his clear vision for the games’ soundtracks, and all three also talk about how important it is to each of them due to how specific the score’s tone and instrumentation really is.

Each one also shares an anecdote from their personal experiences, with Davis talking about how strange it was at first to create the rustic, almost out-of-tune sound that Wintory wanted, and Hollens and Malukah discussing how hard it is to sing in Icelandic.

The Banner Saga 3 will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android on July 26th. You can watch the entire video below, and you can head over here to read DualShockers’ preview of the conclusion to the series.
