Retro Brit-Am Pop is a great style of music that entices you to listen for metaphors & find your own personal meaning in songs. There’s creative harmonies and lush instrumentation. You can hear songs that are built part by part by individual artists or cohesive bands instead of a team of writers that typically sit behind the current pop stars. The music may even emulate some of your favorite bands of the past but in pieces and parts. You can listen to it over and over, and years later, rediscover it. Not surprising it will probably grow on you more than once!
What kind of instrumentation is used for this type of music? It’s a splash of the best 60’s, 70’s with a slight splash of 80’s sound. The music production sounds quite similar to what was created by the likes of producers in that earlier era, George Martin and more. You’ll hear Harmonies, Horns, Sitars, Strings, Synths, Rhodes, Harpsichords, and many different instruments and sonic layers, with acoustic, 12 string, and electric guitars. All I can say is – what a incredible journey back in time with brand new music, catchy lyrics and deep musical content all done in a retro style of yesterday.
Creating music that has the essence of the 60’s requires a channeling of a time gone past. Instruments existed back then that aren’t typically used the same way today, guitar licks had a style.
Most importantly the songs often have harmonies, personal topics and song structures that don’t subscribe to the typical modern song flow and sometimes where more of a song storyboard then a formula. Don’t get us wrong, we like some formula style songs, they can be amazing but we also embrace songs that have a lot of twists and turns.
