Coming off the back of a five year creative relationship with the two motorbike giants, Solebay Music are set to release the much in demand ‘Sessions’ EP’s.
Following the hugely successful global ad campaigns, this previously unavailable collection of songs is set for release in December. Fans of the adverts have long been calling for the music to be released as they dream of riding to the roadworthy tunes.
The EP’s are the creation of the hugely successful music production house Solebay Music. Founded by producer To Be Frank, aka Frank Pescod, the company has created bespoke music for such companies as Louis Vuitton, River Island and the BBC, as well as numerous other apps, games and online media. Having never before released their material to the general public, the demand was too great for these ‘Sessions’ to be ignored.
The Harley Davidson Sessions:
Combining a mixture of musical styles, the EP opens with the song ‘Desert Songs’. Sounding like something straight out of Wim Wenders Paris, Texas, the solo guitar piece emphasises the sometime feeling of loneliness on the bike. Moving in a rather different direction, ‘Full Steam Ahead’ has an almost Krautrock feel as the constant beat and minimal synth melody drive the song. Elsewhere, ‘Time To Ride’ is a toe-tapping, rugged indie-rock piece and ‘You Keep Lifting Me Higher’ comes in three different versions – acoustic, rock and rockabilly – each evoking a change in feeling. The collection is truly a testament to the musicianship and songwriting abilities of the members of Solebay Music.
‘The Harley Davidson Sessions’ will be released on February 11th. Pre-order the EP from iTunes here.
The Triumph Session:
Featuring the five pieces that have been at the heart and soul of the Triumph adverts, the perfectly crafted songs are a journey in themselves. Opening with the pumping ‘Going My Own Way’, the EP neatly moves between sounds which all lend themselves to Triumph Motorcycles. The rugged rock sound of ‘La La La’ sits comfortably next to the melodic indie piece ‘Sally’ and the more electronic, Rapture-esque track ‘I’m Not The Only One’. The collection is truly a testament to the musicianship and songwriting abilities of the members of Solebay Music.
‘The Triumph Sessions’ will be released on February 11th. Pre-order from iTunes now.
