The Hultquists note: “As fans of the show, we were thrilled to join Good Girls for Seasons 3 & 4. It was an amazing opportunity to bring a new musical perspective to this series, and help tell the story of Beth, Annie & Ruby. Our co-showrunners, Jenna Bans and Bill Krebs, helped push us to discover new sounds and arrangements in our efforts to "never sound like a tv show". We are so pleased we can celebrate the end of the series with this soundtrack release, collecting themes from the past two seasons.”

Her ambient and chamber work also gathers great inspiration from nature and natural sound, as well as the juxtaposition of unlikely sounds with one another.

Her feature-length film scoring credits include HBO documentary "At The Heart of Gold- Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal" (dir. Erin Lee Carr), “Deadly Illusions” (dir Anna Elizabeth James, Netflix) and upcoming film “Night Teeth” (dir Adam Randall, Netflix).
