The soundtrack was written and largely performed by Chris Roe. The composer and multi-instrumentalist collaborated with Alice Purton on several tracks, whose cello playing is meant to evoke “the wind, waves, seagulls and distant ferry horns of Dover and Calais.” After love won Best Original Score at Les Arcs Film Festival. It follows Roe’s highly praised work on Armstrong, Spitfire, and Children of the Snow Land.
