A Body Up Against Itself

Folk rock instrumental. Short ambient intro, then main intro of mandolin with strummed guitar chords, solid drums a strong bass line join, adding punch and depth. Arpeggiated synth then an electronic break with synth strings, muted, faraway drums and atmospheric synth before the drums, bass and guitar kick in again. Confident and strident, yet thoughtful, folky with a harsh rock edge, perfect TV theme music to suit a terrestrial drama, or for an adventure/travel advert for the British outdoors.

No Drums, Stems and Ad length versions available

Heuristic

Moody electronic intrigue. Pulsating electronic beats, anticipatory synth strings, fizzling synths punctuated by throbbing beats. A plinky plonk melody enters, the repeated synth notes building tension. Choppy orchestral strings, fleeting echoing synth and crackling feedback. Mysterious, suspenseful and nerve-wracking, perfect for a tense TV/Film scene, sneaking around corners, tip-toeing across creaky floorboards, trying to remain invisible because the consequences could be grave.

Vision Ambient Piano

Atmospheric piano track. Gentle piano chords with reverb effects, subtle synth with warming, female vocal effect, synth string line, piano chords build and intensify. Meditative, quiet, searching and heavy with longing, would suit as emotional mood music for a mournful but hopeful TV/Film/Advert sequence.

Unapologetic

Punchy urban electronic track. Dramatic 90s-inspired catchy synth strings, bouncy beats, unforgiving electric guitar and church music choral samples. Serious, forceful and full of conviction, a modern mash up of guitar and beats perfect for an youth advert or for a heightened moment in a contemporary TV show.

2009 AD

Electronic trip hop instrumental track. Water sounds, electronic lasers, organ-like drone snatches. Naive riff on cutesy synth turns is joined by trip hop beats, shuffling drums and synthesised string interludes. Fleeting sitar samples and scratchy electronics punctuate the beat. Electronic/drone break before the riff and frantic electronics, like vinyl-scratching, rejoin until the end. Cool, laid-back and urban, a throwback to the baggy trouser days of the 90s, with a hint of Morcheeba. Would suit adverts for clothing or lifestyle products, or as background music for an urban drama or documentary.
