Commenting on Life with Melodies

M83 - Solitude ( Felsmann + Tiley Reinterpretation), Single
2020—05-14

Super honoured to rework M83's Solitude, a fitting theme for these current times. We took the melancholy of his original and further intensified it by distilling it into a synthy reduction.

Grab it right by the feels and contemplate your inner canyon.

Music
April, Single
2018—07-17

We're delighted to announce our second synth-only single April. Available now for your listening pleasure.

Stream or download here: http://smarturl.it/ftapr

Compared to slow-paced and epic October, April is a bit more on the dancey side of things with a melancholic twist. We sneaked in synthesized kickdrum, which is technically in breach of our Manifesto but it had to be done for this song. It's kind of an hommage to our dance music roots.

Check back soon, there's another single in the pipeline for next month.


Music
October, Single
2018—06-13

October is the pioneering debut single from Frankfurt and London based composer duo Felsmann + Tiley.

Stream or download here: http://smarturl.it/ftoct

The song, as well as further compositions in the pipeline, explores the grandeur of film scores, the simple beauty of contemporary piano compositions and the wide sound spectrum of electronic music.

“October” is a beautiful, timeless “synth-only” piece, stripping away all the percussive elements of electronic music. It is Felsmann + Tiley’s musical interpretation of an epic final battle, fought with pride and glory, all while being aware of the inevitably dramatic outcome.

The debut single marks the start of a string of releases to come over the next few months.
