From Your Garden

Slow keyboard instrumental with slight atmospheric effects. In between harpsichord and piano, melancholy, plinky-plonky broken chords moving from dark to light. Quiet, reflective, intimate and thoughtful, perfect ambient background music to an emotional TV/Film scene of repressed desires and dark, emotional secrets.

It’s Just What I Think

Nostalgic soundtrack to kids playtime. Naive intro on warm, retro keys. Joined by sound effects, tinkling cans and crunching paper. Vocal ‘Ooohs’ enter with uplifting drums, interrupted by spoken word samples. A steady drum beat, keys and percussive tin can groove settles in, sounding like a microscopic recording of ants in work in the backyard. A new synth-led section brings fantasy, twinkling lights and gurgling sound effects, before a return to the melody with added percussive effects. Innocent, hopeful and nostalgic, suitable for a heartwarming advert looking at families, kids and the joys of childhood.

Acoustic Roaming

Happy-go-lucky acoustic guitar track. Lightly strummed acoustic guitar, bass guitar and soft drums introduce 60s Hammond organ style keyboards, and shaker percussion. A chorus of sustained chords on keys and electric guitar flourishes before a quieter guitar and percussion section. Back to full sound for an upbeat finish. Cheerful, hopeful and chilled, laid back fun, suitable for a upbeat, positive advert for a nifty service that will make life easier, or a product that will brighten your day. Also suitable for light-hearted documentaries.

Dominoes

Funky guitar instrumental. Wocka wocka guitar, funky slap bass and 90s keys, with retro samples and electronic effects. Woozy, laid back and upbeat, the 70s as imagined in the 90s, a stoner on a spacehopper. Fun slacker music for easy going adverts or 90s throwback TV.

Bat Milk

Chilled jazzy reggae track. Slow piano skank and tip-toeing bass guitar intro with surf-style guitar effects and laid back drums. Brass plays a lyrical melody that sounds like a raised eyebrow, joined by subtle sustained keyboard chords. Saxophone takes a solo, accompanied by jazz drums and skanking guitar keeping the relaxed, mid-tempo beat. Back to melody on brass, before a keyboard solo like The Specials’ Ghost Town and a fade out. Thoughtful and searching, yet relaxed and easy-going, perfect for a Film/TV scene where the protagonist is on a solo journey of discovery in a new place or a strange, intriguing situation. Would also suit an advert for a new, exotic and surprisingly tasty food or beverage.

Pressing Bruises

Happy piano build with vocals. Cute piano, keys, glockenspiel and hand clap intro. Anticipation builds with extra keyboards and piano chords. Female vocal ‘ooohs’ add a calming, dreamy quality. Excited, positive, relaxed and peaceful. Suitable for an advert full of anticipation that leads to a successful and calm resolution. Feels like a job well done: a beautifully painted room, a well-risen cake or a good night’s sleep.

White Sofa

Lounge jazz track. Gentle strummer acoustic guitar, fleeting synth fx, subtle drums with laid back jazz keyboard melodies on top. Occasional electronic and vocal samples wash over the shimmering soundscape. Chilled, positive and laid back. Air-does-Ibiza. Would suit an easy breezy advert for stylish beverages or white sofas, or as background music for soothing TV.

Byron

African jazz-style instrumental. Dynamic drum intro, bold brass enters in unison, African-style jazz guitar, Étiopiques-style keys and lively marimba before a siren-like chiming, dissonant brass build, over increasingly frenetic marimba. Returns to jazz groove with a sax solo on top and a repeated melodic motif underneath on keys. Full band to the end. Joyful and excited, reckless and strange at times, would suit an upbeat summer advert, or as evocative mood music for a travel documentary.

The Art of Being Sneaky

Pink Panther-esque jazz instrumental. Double Bass jazz motif tip-toes across the track, joined by clipped hand drums, Rhodes piano keyboard sound and sound effects. Mysterious, playful and suspenseful, perfect for an onscreen intrigue or a pastiche of retro whodunnits.

13 sec version available.

Pagume

African jazz instrumental. Snaking double bass intro, joined by jazz drums, vibraphone, electric guitar and keyboard playing a rhythmic motif. Change of rhythm, horn blasts then saxophone melody, subtle African-jazz style, effects-heavy electric guitar solo, brass noise before vibraphone motif returns and all play until the finish. Intriguing, exotic and sensual, with hints of Mulatu Astatke and a little Fela Kuti influence, would suit a travel documentary or Film/TV scene evoking the spirit of a hot night in urban 1970s Africa.
