Roots (Suite)

Acoustic guitar and piano track with experimental elements. Gentle acoustic guitar punctuated with electronic noise and water sounds. Joined by warm piano and hints of playfully subtle saxophone, minor chords growing in intensity and turning to major for a hopeful finish. Mysterious, cheeky and subversive, brings to mind a magical woodland scene of trees going walkies while your back is turned. Perfect for TV/Film/Docs, pastoral settings and subtly powerful storytelling.

Bed version is more intimate, featuring more raw, sparse acoustic guitar, brings out the scratchy, barely-there violin and teasing background noise.

Everybody’s Got One (Suite)

Retro TV theme tune with saxophone. A football whistle and hint of samba drums gives way to a mellow, homely piano chord sequence, with jaunty horn section, saxophone passionate soloing and a lush string build to meet the end. Comforting, positive and reassuring, like a 90s American family sitcom theme tune, cosy, retro and warm, think ‘Who’s the Boss?’ for good old-fashioned family japes.

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.

Warm synth notes and tinkling piano melody bring lightness and joyful anticipation. Angelic choral vocal samples break in before a change to a harder synth section. The sunshine breaks through the clouds with electric guitar cutting through the wash of strings and choral vocals. Piano rejoins with a simple, hopeful melodic pattern. Powerful and moving, yet gentle and thoughtful, Elbow-like emotional build to suit an inspiring advert or a triumphant onscreen finale.
