Naive hyperpop. Catchy synth melody over sweet synths and a serious beat build. Beat drops, wobbly synths, whooshing samples and warm, enveloping, pretty chords. Another build, squeaky synths and a beat break. Happy, sincere, cute and sparkly, like the bonkers kawaii of PC Music, or computer game music, perfect for Reality TV montages/interludes, or adverts for young and fun summer festivals, or rainbow computer game fantasy worlds.
Playful orchestral track. A jaunty woodwind motif to begin, joined by sparse glockenspiel setting a cheeky and playful tone. Languid strings join, adding an air of grandeur. Strings take prominence, woodwind takes an accompanying role. Then short bursts of strings interspersed with determined oboe. Stronger string section builds to a call and answer between gentle woodwind and serious strings, before calm finish. Pastoral, light-hearted, with serious undertones, like the Animals of Farthing Wood bounding among the trees only to come across a gun-toting farmer, before an ingenious escape. Perfect music to accompany intriguing documentary scenes about nature and animals, or reality TV, showing humans in their natural habitat.
Anticipatory electronic track. Fade In. Moody beats, fat synths and a repetitive melodic synth motif emerge fully formed. An insistent 4/4 beat underpins 90s-style samples and electronic flourishes. Determined, serious, yet upbeat, would suit a half sophisticated, half cheesy advert for a functional product, think chrome and flashes of steel, shiny and indestructible. Would also suit Film/TV scenes of anticipation and action.
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.
Atmospheric synth instrumental. Layers of echoing synth. Fat, warm, 80s reverb-laden sound. Sombre orchestral string effect, chiming piano and glacial beats gives a serious, driving feeling. Intriguing, mysterious and strange, Twin Peaks-style ambience crossed with Enya and the Crimewatch theme tune, would suit a dark TV drama or as tension-building background music to an eye-opening documentary.
Funky 90s vocal and sample track. Vocals burst in from the start, laid back 90s samples, squelchy beats, cymbals, funky keys. Added orchestral strings add a serious note under the breezy beats. Chilled and cool with a slightly serious edge, a mash up of samples and influences, swinging between cool and intense. Ultimately a funky call to action.
Non-vocal version available.
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.
Sombre acoustic guitar and piano track. Percussion, moody repetitive acoustic guitar and piano, dark sustained strings, tense choppy strings. The mood lightens, expanded acoustic guitar and pretty piano. Dark, sombre, quiet, worried a relaxed finish, would suit a tense TV/Film moment of uncertainty and fear before a slight hint of resolution.
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.
Atmospheric piano and orchestral string track. Delicate, sparse piano intro, choppy orchestral strings, feedback-like string drones building in intensity throughout. Threatening, sombre and foreboding, a post-apocalyptic soundscape for a dark TV/Film/Doc moment.
Alt version features additional squelchy electronics.
