The Militant Upcycle

Bloopy, psychedelic electronic track. Gentle, reverb-laden synth patterns, repeated, morphing into a noisier sound, growing more intense. A wash of fuzzy, atmospheric noise drowns out the synth melodies. Hints of My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab, Broadcast and Air, sepia-tinted electronics mingle with harsh noise in a satisfying contrast. Warm, gentle, searching and plodding to begin with, more intense, powerful and expansive as the track progresses. Perfect atmospheric film or documentary music, retro-futuristic and edgy, reminiscent of the Lost in Translation soundtrack.

Before You Go (Suite)

Chilled electronica. Soft, atmospheric synth build becomes background synth drone under a slow, syncopated, tropical beat. Bright, colourful synth shines on top of an ambient base with growing beats and weightless synth lines reaching out like tree vines. Calm, peaceful and futuristic, a musical utopia, perfect for uplifting TV scenes or as an accompaniment to a soothing, hopeful advert for ethical fashion or worthy causes.

Vocal version features Molly Nilsson-style breathy female vocals – cool, calm and atmospheric with a hint of 90s nostalgia.

Powerful and moving, yet gentle and thoughtful, Elbow-like emotional build to suit an inspiring advert or a triumphant onscreen finale.
