We've said it before and we'll say it again, if you haven't started already then you need to sort you life out and watch Netflix's Dark. The cult German series returned for its third and final season and while we were sitting back, completely lost and mesmerised by the whatever the hell was going in one of its episodes, we suddenly copped a familiar voice.
The incredible Dark soundtrack had been one of the highlights of the first two seasons of the series and the latest season is no different. The haunting music plays a huge role in setting the tone of the show and often provides the perfect backdrop as we sit through a montage of telling shots that often explain what the hell is going on far better than any script.
While the show has introduced us to many new artists, we felt a little bit of national pride to hear Hozier's "In The Woods Somewhere" ring out midway through episode five of the new season.
His popularity among viewers is plain to be seen given the amount of views and countless "Dark brought me here" comments it has amassed on YouTube in the just the couple of days since Netflix released the new season.
"In The Woods Somewhere" featured on the deluxe version of Hozier's self-titled debut album so it's one that some may not have heard before. The inspiration for the song apparently came to him in a dream.
In the Woods Somewhere! Someone asked me here also would I rather fight a horse or a wolf. Once dreamt I had to fight a horse in a nearby field as it was kicking and maiming a group of tiny school children. I found an axe but as I ran through the trees I found my hands were empty https://t.co/Ba5jYHjgDn

Aside from Hozier, for those interesting in the series soundtrack, we're big fans of Teho Teardo & Blixa Bargeld's "A Quiet Life," Soap&Skin's "Me and the Devil" and of course, the intro music, Apparet's "Goodbye".
Apologies to the “Skip Intro” button that will be ignored by everyone watching DARK today.#DarkNetflix
