Light grooves and chiming piano set an atmosphere of mellow, chilled reflection in this instrumental track. Gently building from soulful piano over a thin resonant beat to a fuller blown burst of energised expression using rock drums, electric guitar and a brass section, the mood is always one of developing thoughtfulness with a cinematic edge. Slightly dark and sombre but with enough positivity to generate optimism, and enough animation to generate interest.
The title says 'News', but in truth, it's more than that. It certainly has a current affairs/political theme running through it, with its grand orchestral hits, tension-building ascensions, string ostinato, tremolo, percussive chimes and brass swells, but capturing such a cinematic dynamic opens it up to many other uses where a time-led intensity is required. Think James Bond on a deadline.
