Fly Paper

Experimental pop with vocals. Breathy, reverb-laden vocals over Dirty Projectors-style noodling electric guitar, unpredictable rhythms and rattling percussion. Sparse, washed out electric guitar chords replace vocals over jerky percussion. Repeats. Thoughtful, dreamy and romantic, perfect for a reflective indie film scene or nostalgic TV drama outro.

Come Through

Downbeat electronic RnB track. Warm piano chord progression, muted, syncopated beats, vocal samples and dreamy reverb build a sultry, expectant atmosphere. Trap beats and breathy Enya-like female vocals added. Warm, fat, nostalgic synths join with electric guitar flourishes cutting through the haze. Cool, clear synth like water droplets takes on the chord progression before a full ending. Romantic, nostalgic and hopeful, like if the Drive soundtrack was a bit more RnB. A subtly determined soundscape, perfect for pensive and decisive TV/Film/Doc moments, ultimately leaving the past behind.

Salutations Plains Wanderer

Dreamy multi-instrumental track. Gentle, swaying, looped piano motif, joined by bright, pealing keys, hypnotic and cyclical. Moves to a jazz keyboard sound, joined by violin and cello sharing fragments of melody. High register violin and ascending keys drive the melody to an anticipatory hight point. A new section: soft, tender Satie-like chordal piano, joined by breathy sustained strings. A soothing variation on the original motif to finish. Romantic, thoughtful and other-worldly,a sonic dream, astral wanderings with one foot in the 20th century. Would suit a reflective TV scene or a very beautiful documentary.

Not My Ask

Romantic jazz instrumental. Breathy saxophone melody, softly strummed guitar and gentle piano chords, joined by a selection of strings playing the undulating melodic idea in canon. Saxophone plays out before melting away to sultry breathiness again for the wistful mid-section. Strings wail, clarinet cuts through as the track builds in intensity before a quiet, reduced ending. Beautiful, sensual, intense and thoughtful, like the soulful East African jazz of Étiopiques. Would suit a highly charged, tender, romantic moment on TV/Film, or a reflective advert for something very special.

Each Day With Me (Instrumental)

Easy-going acoustic guitar track. Gentle acoustic guitar finger-picking with soft piano chords beneath. Breathy vocal ‘Ooohs’ join at the chorus. Next time round more vocals with harmonies and fuller plucked guitar. Hopeful, positive, sweet and romantic, a bit Dawson’s Creek, and as wholesome as the Gilmore Girls, perfect for a saccharine advert or thoughtful, pastoral TV/Film scene.

These Waters Remember Part 3

Chiming guitar track with female vocals. Interweaving electric and acoustic guitars, reverb and delay effects, like an indie guitar track. Breathy female vocals introduced. Guitars duel and layer up, dark and brooding, an instrumental Interpol with slightly jazzy female vocals. African jazz and Spanish guitar influences. Mysterious and atmospheric, would suit a spellbinding TV/Film/Doc scene, spans cultures and eras, a cyclical guitar meditation.

That’s for Eating With

Quirky instrumental. Dramatic opening, sustained keys and brass, sounds like the electronic rainbow blasts of Animal Collective. Gives way to a meandering jazz saxophone joined by a brass blast then an unexpected quirky percussive section with piano and a big build, all instruments in, like the finale of a stadium rock concert. Sparse breathy saxophone section before another epic blast of noise. Solo sax then all instruments in, strings, drums, percussion, vocals and brass with drum crashes and wallops before a peaceful end. Bombastic and epic with slow, thoughtful sections, a fun mix of styles and moods, would suit a silly Film/TV scene humorous advert for a bonkers product.

Frozen Peaks

Soothing vocal track with tinkling glockenspiel accompaniment. A comforting wash of harp, glockenspiel, and a breathy chorus of warm vocals. Peaceful, serene, short and simple, perfect as a gentle TV ident, for reality TV montages or for a heartwarming holiday advert.

Secret Sampler

Whispered female vocal intro chopped up into a rhythmic vocal loop, resolves into an ethereal Spanish guitar and vocal melodic segment. Mysterious, sensual and supernatural, sounding like a Spanish Bjork or Charlotte Gainsbourg, would suit a strange, psychedelic TV/Film sequence.
