Johnny Jewel, the man behind electro outfit Chromatics, has reportedly been working closely with Ryan Gosling on soundtracking the latter's first effort as a director, Lost River. One of the tracks taken from the score is 'Yes (Love Theme from Lost River)' – it's filled with all the urgent magic and slow dependencies of love, awash as it is with glassy pads, jouncing synth bass and rich, emotive strings.

You'll also notice the choral vocals, wordlessly casting a spell on you. It's a triplicate effort featuring Ida No (Glass Candy), Megan Louise (Desire) and Ruth Radelet (Chromatics) – all of whom both sing as Johnny Jewel-produced acts, and call his label Italians Do It Better their musical home.

It's not the first time Mr. Jewel and Ryan Gosling have worked together. Two efforts from the musical maestro appeared on the stunning soundtrack from 2011's now-classic indie film, Drive ('Tick of the Clock' by Chromatics and 'Under Your Spell' by Desire). Will Lost River similarly scribble its number on a napkin and deposit into our hearts forever?

Well, it premiered at Cannes Film Festival last year and the reception wasn't perfect: it was both cheered and booed. Currently, it's got 25% on Rotten Tomatoes and 35/100 on Metacritic. This is just critical opinion though – public opinion might be wildly different.

• In other news, Chromatics' new album Dear Tommy should be out in time for Valentine's Day.

• We interviewed Chromatics back in 2012. It's really quite extensive – dive back through time here.
