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.
Gritty grunge rock. Light, scratchy electric guitar intro, followed by all out fuzzy effects-laden guitar chorus. Simple bass guitar and steady drums accompany a lighter break before the heavy chorus re-enters. Righteous, punchy and perfect for slow head-banging, like early Nirvana, 90s grunge to suit dark TV/Film, incendiary documentary scenes and reckless adverts.
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.
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.
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.
Gentle acoustic guitar track. Softly strummed acoustic guitar plays an ascending riff. Low key drums shuffle along, electric guitar adds subtle high-pitched highlights. Natural, laid back and chilled, a warm country-style track to suit bright, pastoral TV/Film scenes or uplifting advertising.
Tense acoustic guitar track. Acoustic guitar riff, repeated, building anticipation. Electric guitar line joins, building the texture. Electric guitar effects added, delay creates a chiming effect. Guitar layers added, creating a cacophonous, reverberating atmosphere. Wordless female vocals join, like a flamenco song or Portugese fado. Earthy, meditative and tense. Would suit a dramatic TV/Film moment, a female wailing, like Mother Nature herself crying out.
Intricate guitar instrumental. Plucked acoustic guitar lines interwoven. Electric guitar with some reverb and delay effects picks out a melody on top. Electric guitar grows more prominent, sounding like an instrumental Warpaint, while the acoustic lines grow stronger and more intricate. The interplay of guitar lines creates a chiming effect. Atmospheric, melancholy and enveloping, a melancholy, hypnotic sound world, perfect for tense TV/Film/Doc moments in unfamiliar environments.
Upbeat, electronic rock stomper. Bouncy synth riff with DnB beats, pauses then crashes back in with added effects-laden electric guitar. Ends on a guitar wail. Driven, single-minded, effervescent and slightly dangerous, perfect theme music for a ‘Fresh Meat’-style drama about dysfunctional University life, or a high energy advert for a youth-giving product.
Fast-paced alt rock instrumental. A tight heavy metal style electric guitar riff over quick, insistent drums. Short, sharp stabs of sound with elaborate, manic drum fills bridging the gaps. Aggressive, mischievous and incendiary, sounding like Foo Fighters or Queens of the Stone Age, provocative music that spells danger and rebellion. Perfect for badass rule-breakers on TV/Film, or for a ball-busting advert where the status quo is crushed to smithereens.
