Bombay

Meditative oud instrumental with male vocals. Upbeat, melodic oud, resembling sitar, repeating melodic ideas with sparse hand drums and intermittent guttural vocals on top, reminiscent of North Indian Classical Music. Plodding yet rhythmic and driving with an improvisatory feel, perfect for a Film/TV scene set in a vast, unfolding Middle Eastern landscape.

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.

A New Day

Uplifting piano track with orchestral strings and hints of shoegaze. Simple piano intro, building anticipation, orchestral strings swell in the background, plodding bass guitar percussion then soaring strings and quickening percussion build to a retro, shoegaze, slacker grunge section with orchestral strings. Elbow meets The Jesus and Mary Chain. Powerful yet chilled, romantic and hopeful, a dreamy, inspirational build to suit a closing scene on screen or a heartwarming advert.

Giant

Uplifting pop/rock track with orchestral strings. Piano and acoustic guitar intro into hopeful acoustic chord progression, joined by piano chords. Chorus launches with growing electric and acoustic guitars, sustained, soaring orchestral strings and steady, plodding drums. Ascending chord progression signals hope and aspiration. Effects laden guitars give an edge before a quiet build to a rousing final chorus. Stirring, self-assured and optimistic, reminiscent of like Lonestar’s Amazed, perfect inspiring track for a wholesome advert or emotional, triumphant TV/Film scene.

The 8th Day

Country rock jam. Slow strummed acoustic guitar chord intro with subtle snare drum. Full drums and fuzzy electric guitar kick in with a simple riff. Heavier chorus section with more of everything. Electric guitar solo shreds through the guitar later in the track. Brash and confident with a hint of plodding reflection. Perfect for a dramatic TV/Film scene or documentary following a slightly tortured character.

San Marino

Gentle pastoral orchestral string track with soothing male vocals. Slow, atmospheric intro of harp and percussion establishes a hypnotic plod before male ‘Aaahs’ softly wash over the instrumental bed. Subtle sustained woodwind added, along with sparkling percussion and orchestral strings, tambourine and flute. Calm, peaceful with a hint of excited anticipation. The Wicker man meets Green Man Festival, perfect for a fantastical film moment, a trippy woodland adventure, a Wicker Man-style , or nature documentaries.

Geeks Groove

Mysterious electronic synth track. Repetitive synth intro, bouncy and arpeggiated, with spooky synth whooshes. New section of spookier synth riff, twinkling percussive bells and strings straight out of an old James Bond film, building anticipation. Sustained synth section with shuffling percussion becomes a dynamic, rhythmic synth section. Like Santigold but weird and wonky, topsy-turvy. Plodding yet classy, a real mystery. Intriguing and beguiling, would suit a provocative advert, a flashy product, sexy and stylish but a hint of danger.

Bleeps

Electronic instrumental with samples. Gradual build. First, a beat and electronic sound effects, hi hat drums added, other electronics join. Full melody join, the beats settle into a steady groove. New section introduces laser synths and whooshing electronics before the beat re-emerges with simple repetitive synth, a powerful, purposeful strut. Intriguing, playful and mysterious, like the quirky electronics of Moderat. Suitable for a European advert, maybe for a car that can navigate tiny Italian streets. Could also accompany a determined character on TV/Film.

Ad length versions available.

I Gave You the World (Suite)

Blues guitar number. Wailing electric blues guitar, laid back slide guitar, classic blues guitar chord progression, walking bass line and gentle easy-going drums. Electric organ ads extra flavour. Plodding, steady, cool, calm and a bit cocky, self-assured blues rock for an American-style advert for some BBQ meat flavouring or for some Film/TV Americana.

Bed version available with No Lead Guitar.

Desert Robes

Exotic dub track. Bubbling dub bass guitar lurches around like a ghost from Scooby Doo, wistful piano, surfy slide-style electric guitar, mysterious, exotic brass and reverb-laden electric guitar and drums all plod purposefully and carefully across the track. Saxophone solos smoothly, then duets, twangy electric guitar plays Tinariwen, desert rock-style, all in to finish. Thoughtful, exotic, mysterious and suspenseful, would suit a quiet Film/TV scene set in an intriguing, new place, our character immersed in a new and curious world.
