Endless Sands

Oud instrumental with strings drones. Oud improvisational melody with a string drone building atmosphere and tension. Intermittent percussive snare rumbles punctuate the drone. Rhythmic percussion introduced and some vocals and a short expressive but subtle ney interlude. Anticipatory, mysterious and exciting, perfect evocative Arabic instrumental to soundtrack documentaries or travel shows.

Alt versions have a more free and meandering feel.

Tide of Feelings

Emotional pop/rock. Drum build with sparse piano chords. Violin-like drawn-out samples mournfully yearn over the drums and piano. Strings flutter build to expressive vocal samples and more string layers. Enveloping, romantic and thoughtful, would suit a Film/TV scene of great emotional and romantic tension.

Before You Go (Suite)

Chilled electronica. Soft, atmospheric synth build becomes background synth drone under a slow, syncopated, tropical beat. Bright, colourful synth shines on top of an ambient base with growing beats and weightless synth lines reaching out like tree vines. Calm, peaceful and futuristic, a musical utopia, perfect for uplifting TV scenes or as an accompaniment to a soothing, hopeful advert for ethical fashion or worthy causes.

Vocal version features Molly Nilsson-style breathy female vocals – cool, calm and atmospheric with a hint of 90s nostalgia.

SH Intro

Bleepy electronics. Vocal sample like wind and synths like water evoke the natural world in an electronic soundscape. Peaceful, ethereal, calm and gentle, but still a little unnerving…suitable for an onscreen hallucination or dreamlike montage.

Kronos

Piano and orchestral string build. Orchestral strings undulate under soaring strings building to a powerful percussive section with vocal-like electronic samples and continuing epic strings. Quiet section with vocals then percussion rejoins building anticipation and tension to a multi-layered textural soundscape. Contrasting soft piano section to finish. Strange, dark and intriguing, pagan sounds reminiscent of singular Scandinavian pop like the Knife. Perfect for an onscreen threat or a bold, epic and uncanny film or TV scene.

Fly Paper

Experimental pop with vocals. Breathy, reverb-laden vocals over Dirty Projectors-style noodling electric guitar, unpredictable rhythms and rattling percussion. Sparse, washed out electric guitar chords replace vocals over jerky percussion. Repeats. Thoughtful, dreamy and romantic, perfect for a reflective indie film scene or nostalgic TV drama outro.

Friday (Woohoo!)

Upbeat rock track. Uptempo electric guitar, bass and drums, classic blues rock with fun vocal ‘woohoo’s. Catchy and engaging, like The White Stripes’ ‘Fell in Love with a Girl’. Loud, brash and ridiculously positive, perfect for an advert for weekend shenanigans, a tasty new beer or a fun foodstuff that can be shared at a big party for all your favourite people. Woohoo!

These Waters Remember Part 1

Acoustic guitar track with female vocals. Slow intro of plucked, Spanish-style guitar with atmospheric reverb. Grows more fast-paced. Ethereal female vocals introduced at end. Sultry, mysterious and slightly melancholy, would suit a shot panning an arid landscape, or a strange romance on TV/Film, anticipation, lust and confusion in the desert.

Get Charged (Righteous Remix)

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.

Zing Wezé Mama

Upbeat Africa-inspired piano track with vocals. Orchestral strings, spirited African vocals, rousing percussion and hopeful piano chords. Driving, positive and joyous, would suit a heartwarming, Africa-related advert or tv/film moment of ecstatic joy.

Instrumental version features driving piano and percussion without the vocals. Rousing and uplifting, would suit any joyous onscreen moment.

1 min and 30 second ad length version, with vocals, also available.
