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.

In Dry, Glassy Air

Mysterious solo piano track. Busy, melancholy piano melody over sparse, broken chords, moving between major and minor, from darkness and confusion to moments of light. Simple, curious and reflective, like an conversation with yourself, would suit a thoughtful, wintry TV/Film moment or puzzling documentary scene.

I Can Be Fearless

Driving alternative rock instrumental. Subtle electronic swoosh before simple strummed electric guitar riff. Effects and light keys added. Extra electric guitar line joins before the full alt rock chorus blast, uplifting and euphoric. Chilled verse with chiming anticipatory guitar before full chorus returns. Rocking mid section with punchy guitars and 60s keys. Chiming guitar duet takes things down a notch before the driving chorus. Single guitar outro. Brash, bold and excited, 90s alt rock throwback, perfect as upbeat TV background music or for a slick, rocking advert.

Old Roots

Melancholy solo piano track. Thoughtful, yearning piano melody over simple, repeated two-note patterns on piano. Grows in volume and intensity with lower register piano accompaniment and added interest with Bach-like modulation. Slow, solemn and restrained, a desolate piece, perfect for a quiet onscreen tragedy or a rain-sodden, lonely, rural scene of sparse neglect.

Long Dream of August

Emotional piano and orchestral string track. Broken piano arpeggios accompanied by deep, lyrical strings. Builds passionately to reach the higher register of the piano and the lowest cello notes. Slow-paced, reflective and moving, the melodic simplicity of Satie, coupled with a cool, contemporary vastness, like Sigur Ros. Perfect romantic music for a heartbreaking onscreen moment or for a reflective walk away…

Healing

Yearning piano and string track. Soft repeated piano notes to introduce the delicate piano melody. Hints of electronic effects. Expands into a beautiful piano melodic motif. Another layer of piano harmonises in a higher register. Reduces to tinkling notes. Simple block chords enter above, followed by the melody. Builds with added strings. Thoughtful, introspective, then dramatic and romantic, would suit a heartbreaking TV scene, our protagonists driven apart by circumstances outside of their control. They still cling to hope. Time heals.

Morning Glow

Piano with string accompaniment. Repetitive piano motif intro, joined by lyrical string section, playing simple, overlapping sustained harmonies and a flutter of electronics. Opens out and warms up with added piano and fuller string parts. Thoughtful and gentle with a hint of romance, would suit scenes of the natural world on a TV/Doc. Flowers unfurling their petals, leaves going brown and falling to the ground, the natural cycles and rhythms of life.

Sleepy Lullaby

Gentle piano and glockenspiel lullaby. Slow-paced, shifting broken piano chords accompanied by piano and glockenspiel softly playing a simple, childlike melody. Soothing, calming, loving and warm, would suit an advert for something that will safeguard your loved ones, allowing you to rest easy, or a sentimental TV show about cute kids or beloved pets.

‘Underscore’ version features gentle broken chords only, slightly 80s feel.

A Lack of Conviction
