Pokerstars — Bear

  • Production Company Outsider
  • Director Jim Gilchrist

Continuing our work for Pokerstars, we wrote a swaggering piece of rock ’n roll for this film. Allowing the action to unfold in the first half the film without music sets up for the reveal. Our composition then kicks in and celebrates our prankster’s mood as he has cleared the packed out bar for the best seat in the house.

Nectar — Get Your Nectar On

  • Production Company Agile Films
  • Director Noah Harris

We found and licensed Harry Belafonte's 1961 Calypso hit "Jump In The Line (Shake Senora) " for this new Nectar TVC. David Reviews suggested it was "oddly appropriate" - we would say it was just appropriate... and it will definitely make you bounce.

Edwards — Storks

We created a sensitive orchestral score as part of this beautifully crafted animation for Edwards Lifesciences' innovative heart valve Inspiris Resilia. The combination of animation and music elegantly brings to life the emotions involved in such a delicate subject as heart surgery. It has been awarded a Bronze at the 2019 London International Awards.

Imodium — Instants

  • Agency JWT
  • Production Company Chief
  • Director Ben Tonge
  • Year 2019

We were asked to write a guilty pleasure 80s pop hit to feature in this singalong comedy spot.

The ad’s hero celebrates feeling ‘comfortable' in rush hour traffic by dancing and miming to our song pumping through the stereo. 

We produced an over length track to help with the casting process and the final song was then used as playback to get the best from the cast on set.

SAGA — Home

  • Agency VCCP
  • Production Company HLA
  • Director John Hardwick
  • Post Production The Mill
  • Year 2019

We re-recorded The Isley Brothers' Motown classic 'This Old Heart Of Mine' for SAGA. A two day recording session at Ray Davies's Konk Studios at London brought together amazing musicians with period correct instruments to create a track that serves the film. Hear the film with just the music here.
