TUNE Sparrows - Gold In The Tide (feat. Fazerdaze)
With its propellant organic beat and light, galloping guitar strums, the kinetic ‘Gold In The Tide’ fits the theme of travel that so often underpins the work of Sparrows (aka Ryota Miyake, component of electro-meisters CRYSTAL).
Minor key guitar melodies summon the mystery of travel, unravelling like a path through a misty forest, whilst brass blares feel celebratory: driving a coastal highway as the sun gleams on the waves. A fitting fanfare for the FLAU family.
“It’s an old song,” says Sparrows. “About 10 years old. But after hearing her voice at RBMA, I decided Fazerdaze would be a best fit, so I asked her to write the lyrics and sing for me.”
The breathy, faraway croons of Faderdaze give this soundtrack a human side, bringing a forlorn but carefree atmosphere to the proceedings.
