Intense acoustic guitar instrumental. Dark, pensive intro growing in speed and intricacy. Quick, repetitive strumming creates a drone effect. Hints of Spanish/Latin American guitar, Western movie soundtracks, as well as Middle-Eastern sounds. Suspenseful, tense and brooding, moving like a seductive dance, would suit onscreen tension on Film/TV or a sombre documentary about seedy goings-on and modern-day cowboys.
Intriguing mid-tempo electronic track. Shaker and hand drum-style percussion, twinkling electronics, bright, glassy synths and sustained atmospheric synth chords unfold and expand. Sustained synth grows in intensity, organ style synth chords chime out, cutting through the dreamscape. Dense, magical, ethereal and futuristic with hints of tension and discord. Feels like a voyage of discovery in a utopian future world, or a personal journey of realisation.
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.
Percussive Spanish guitar track. Washboard percussion, shimmering effects, percussive plucked strings and soaring strings accompany Spanish guitar melodies. Serious, romantic and intense, perfect for a hot summer’s night, on TV/Film, or an advert for a sensual product or experience.
Sample-heavy Eastern-inspired track. Complex beats, jerky string samples, fleeting Asian flute samples, slippery snippets of a dynamic Middle Eastern-style melody with Indian percussion. Serious, intense and changeable, a mix of moods and cultures suiting a food/travel advert or TV/Film scene or documentary exploring the complex history of a colourful place.
Sombre, driving string track. Intro of see-sawing sustained strings, sprinkles of plucked acoustic guitar. Intense bass pizzicato enters, builds and drives track. Faster, more urgent section. Repetitive, choppy string motif, powerful string melody enters, builds further with extra string lines and finger-picking acoustic guitar detail. Serious, threatening, brooding and dark, would suit an escalating situation on film, a move from slight threat to real danger.
Stem tracks available.
Upbeat synth track with vocals. Fat arpeggiated synth, deep bassy beat, shaker-style percussion, ‘Get Ur Freak On’-style beat sample before synth chord progression build to drum break. Tracks speeds up towards the end, building in intensity before a chill, wonky beat slow down. Serious fun, playful and intense, a hedonistic 90s-inspired track for hot nights. Would suit upbeat adverts or a claustrophobic neon party scene on screen.
Slow plodding bass and piano track. Deep double bass notes, repeated piano with delay effects, subtle, slowly shifting sustained strings, sparse percussion. Quiet, intense, concerned, suitable for a tense TV/Film scene, or as moody background music.
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.
‘Underscore’ version features chords only, no melody line.
Relaxed acoustic shuffle with hints of electronica. Acoustic guitar, shuffling drums and bright, fleeting electronic samples build to a steady laid-back groove, alternating between acoustic sections and more electronics-heavy breaks. Passionate, hopeful and romantic, would suit an intense emotional scene or a pensive onscreen road trip.
Vocal version is even more romantic, with breathy male vocals and tender lyrics.
