Tonight We Drink Wine and Dance

Melancholy solo piano. Amélie-style minor oom-pah chords, growing in intensity and embellishment throughout the track. Another line of piano plays a lyrical melody above the regular chords. An energetic chorus brings a modulation and intricate break. Back to opening chords for a finish. Emotional and wretched, yet passionate, would suit an advert or TV scene requiring Gallic charm and impulsive, reckless emotion.

Cross (Justice Has Been Done)

Synth-heavy mid-pace electronic banger, reminiscent of early Daft Punk or Justice. A steady groove is augmented throughout the track, adding extra layers of fat synth and a retro organ sample. A drop in the mid-section builds to a warped version of the riff before a bigger build back to the main theme. Cool, determined, edgy and urban. Dark with flashes of neon light, this track struts, transforming the grey city streets into a technicolour catwalk. Perfect for fashion or sport adverts, or anything representing street or youth culture.

Another Place

An atmospheric, electronic dance track, like a more laid-back Justice or a more direct Sebastian Tellier. Muted beats joined by warm hopeful synth, clap beats and more synth add depth and anticipation to this soft techno track. A blobby, dreamy bassy synth melody cuts through the beats adding warmth and cool French vibes. Perfect for fashion adverts, the colourful synth and beats providing an atmospheric backdrop to ads for products and clothing for hip young things.

Le Fou Roux

French accordion waltz. Oom pah pah waltz rhythm on accordion with an emotional accordion melody moving between major and minor, happy and sad above. Nostalgic, plaintive and intriguing, would suit a advert or TV/Film/Doc montage referencing Amélie or French seaside kitsch.
