A Body Up Against Itself

Folk rock instrumental. Short ambient intro, then main intro of mandolin with strummed guitar chords, solid drums a strong bass line join, adding punch and depth. Arpeggiated synth then an electronic break with synth strings, muted, faraway drums and atmospheric synth before the drums, bass and guitar kick in again. Confident and strident, yet thoughtful, folky with a harsh rock edge, perfect TV theme music to suit a terrestrial drama, or for an adventure/travel advert for the British outdoors.

No Drums, Stems and Ad length versions available

Clear Water

Atmospheric electronic track. Drum machine beats joined by chordal intro on synth. Arpeggiated synth plays a repetitive melody. Warm sustained synths underpin the bright, clear, undulating melody, fresh like rainwater. Extra texture with added beats and ambient synth. Intriguing, optimistic and cool, soothing synths bringing to mind water droplets on new saplings, cool rocks and epic green/blue vistas. Sounding a bit like Santigold, perfect for stylish eco-advertising, a flashy electric car driving through a crisp mountain road, or travel Documentaries.

Breeze

Atmospheric electronic track. Japanese-sounding chiming percussion, textural water sounds, shakers, rattling beats and melodic beats growing in intensity. A definitive gong and a trail of dripping water to finish. Evoking the natural world, as well as ancient Eastern wisdom, ethereal, thoughtful and intense, like a more urgent version of the Lost in Translation soundtrack, or the original music for American Beauty, curious and evocative, suitable for intriguing adverts, soul-searching TV/Film or nature documentaries.

Sneak Peek (Suite)

Light electronic track. Tranquil atmospheric electronics, bleepy sounds, vocal samples and warm synth mix with a mellow throbbing beat and upbeat percussion. Delicate electronic break, gentle swooshes and muted beats. Drums kick in, build anticipation over the gentle bed track. A snare drum section followed by an understated yet triumphant chordal synth build. Joyous, anticipatory and considered, elation but in a classy way, sounds like a more upbeat Beach House or Au Revoir Simone, low key but playful, perfect as background music for a positive, thought-provoking charity video, or for slightly suspenseful reality TV montages.

Evening Star

Pensive piano track with electronics. Fast-paced, wave-like piano with electronic swells. Undulating repeated piano underneath a simple piano melody and airy electronics build an absorbing fantastical world. Breathless, atmospheric and dynamic, with a hint of melancholy. Piano poetry for screen to accompany the excitement and possibility of heady romance.

Phantom Pariah

Spooky atmospheric electronics. Dark soundscape, ambient noise like a distant vehicle, A flurry of electronics and threatening horn-like sustained blasts come and go like scurrying creatures. Alien-like samples build the tension further. Frightening, horrifying and chilling, the sound of an invasion of planet earth by intergalactic rat aliens, for troubling Docs and comedically freaky TV.

Sunset on the Beach

Classic surf rock. Drum intro, followed by mysterious bass guitar, then wonky effects-laden surf guitar chords like the wavy sky at sunset.. Bass and drums underpin a plucked guitar section, joined by the vintage sound of Hammond organ and more distorted electric guitar chords. Wobbly surf guitar solo, then organ break over big chords. Another guitar solo to fade out. Cool, seductive and atmospheric, a retro nod to the music of Quentin Tarantino films. Pure Pulp Fiction, would suit an advert playing on cult film references, or involving smokin’ hot BBQ meats, or a TV homage to Twin Peaks-style dark Americana.

For There is Much to Dare

Atmospheric piano instrumental with subtle strings and electronics. Sustained, dramatic piano notes, another layer of delicate piano bubbles underneath. A melody with delay and electronic effects emerges from the murky ambience created by string-like scratchy drones and muted layers of repetitive piano. Strings grow more harsh, piano builds, ending on a gentle hocketing motif on high-register piano, like gentle chiming bells. Sombre, emotional and quietly, epic, a cinematic soundscape with Philip Glass-like rhythmic piano, perfect to accompany images of nature or a tragic human drama.

Instant 3

Ambient downbeat electronica. Soft harp-like synth arpeggio to begin, sparse synth melody joins, along with atmospheric sound effects, rattling, deep, sustained synth and tentative hand drums. Cowbell-like insistent beat introduced over the melody. Tense, moody and dark, reminiscent of Wild Beasts during their reflective moments, like Four Tet, the build up section of an electro banger, or like trap without the trap beat. Would suit a documentary or film scene loaded with anticipation, uncertainty and suspicion.

Laid Bare 2

Atmospheric new age-style instrumental. Glistening, shimmering drums and effects-laden electric guitars with steel pan drums conjure a magical realm. Becomes slightly more sombre but still sparkles with hope. Gentle, calming and ambient, a spacey meditation, prefect for ethereal advert or reflective TV/Film/Doc scenes.
