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.

Ghost in the Machine

Ambient, uplifting guitar track with electronic and orchestral elements. Woodwind intro like a call to the wind. Atmospheric, bleepy electronics seep in, joined by heavily effects-laden electric guitar cutting through the dreamy atmosphere. Horns and woodwind add to the growing soundscape. Incongruous electronics and spacey synths add off-kilter interest. Woozy, peaceful and meditative, a hopeful, enveloping atmosphere suited to TV Drama, inspiring documentaries or epic adverts.

A Happy Death

Solemn atmospheric piano-led track with orchestral strings. Starts with a string drone that builds in force and dissonance. Single piano and glockenspiel notes tinkle on the edges. This fades out and is replaced by regular melancholy piano chords with ambient percussive rattles and mouse-like squeaks adding a layer of intrigue. Intense and melancholy yet playful, an unusual combination of sounds to suit an off-kilter film or quirky yet sombre advert.

Osier

Thoughtful orchestral string track. String intro like a Purcell opera, gives way to warm, tinkling piano with sensitive string accompaniment, lush and lyrical with a slightly Baroque feel, piano acting as walking bass. Marimba arpeggios join later, adding an off-kilter, unexpected further element to the mix. Intriguing and hopeful yet conflicted, a steady piece of music,gliding through genres. Would suit a TV/Film drama, documentary or advert conjuring a regal past with a hint of eccentricity.

Bonds

Acoustic guitar, piano and percussion. Dynamic, jazzy percussion, strange drum rhythms and a disconnected piano melody. Unpredictable and off-kilter. Emotional orchestral strings mingle with playful percussion and jaunty acoustic guitar. String section, soaring, beautiful violins glide above the rattling drums and jittery guitar. Mysterious, enigmatic and pensive. A strange world that draws you in down the rabbit hole, would suit sophisticated adverts or curious TV/Film/Doc scenes.

Kite

Melancholy piano and orchestral string track. Piano leads an off-kilter waltz, joined by orchestral strings that build throughout, soaring by the finish, and gentle marimba murmurings. Slow, solemn and sensual with hints of light and hope breaking through. Perfect for a desolate TV/Doc/Film scene, imagine a kite stuck in the upper branches of a tree, disintegrating in harsh winter winds, or a sad silent movie. Also suitable as woozy, tragic, lonesome background music to an advert.

Angry Boys

Fuzzy trip hop instrumental. Stop/start rhythmic synth and drum riff. Robotic, fuzzy synth plays drum ‘n’ bass influenced riff, joined by laser beam samples over a trip hop drum beat. Cool and breezy but with a determined edge, a bit like an instrumental Thievery Corporation, suitable for a TV/Film drama focused on a gang of youths living in an unequal world, or an advert for 90s throwback garms.

The Real Business

Two part brass instrumental. Unsteady jazz piano and erratic saxophone notes begin before settling into a mellow, lyrical piano and sax melody with warm string swells. Slightly off-kilter tuning counteracts the sweetness of the melody, giving it a quirky edge. Dreamlike, nostalgic and strange, would suit a reflective documentary moment or a sentimental but not sickly-sweet Film/TV sequence.

Voices of the Night

Unsettling electronic track. Random beats and electronic sound effects build a rhythmic base, unusual sound sources used to create percussive, sensory music. Bird sounds and male vocal samples introduced, like a call to prayer over glitchy beats. Strange, unexpected and off-kilter, experimental electronics to suit a curious, Vice-style documentary or quirky advert.
