Track by Track Review


Sonar Ghost dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Sonar pings echo through the deep as moody tone and dramatic percussion pave the way for a smooth, coastal instro. Echo in lieu of reverb, organ, groovy glissandos, and a splendid melody reminiscent of Rake and the Surftones all add up to a very cool track.

Sad Day In The Waves dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Muted, echoed rhythms and a sparkling lagoon melody line, along with some edgy grit and spooky keys. "Sad Day In The Waves" is a solid track that's just perfect for a dawn patrol!

Viper Trails dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"Viper Trails" is a rockin' track with a jam feel, but more melody than that usually means. Its coastal sound and feel are amped with gritty glissandos.
