This track caught my ear because of the lush string arrangement and also Emma’s strong vocal on top. She sits right in the mix. I love the lyrics:
“I am like a tree without its leaves
I am like a river without its water
And nothing will ever be the same…”
The beat is four on the floor, I just noticed on second pass there’s no real snare drum it’s just a hi hat and a synth noise coming in on the 2 and 4 of the beat very effective.
There’s a nice instrumental section at around 2:18 where Emma’s backing vocals are heard way back in the mix and she comes in with a bridge section. It just builds and it’s fantastic.
Ahhh 808 claps! Perfect.
This is track three in a 5 track project “EPThree: End Credits” and as the name implies it’s part of a series.
Tiger Mendoza is Ian De Quadros. Music maker, producer, over thinker according to his twitter profile, and he’s from Oxford.
Emma Hunter is a musician, performer, a jump up and downer and eco warrior also from Oxford.
I like these two!
