    Our band The Mersey Flows have had a demo published on all major platforms. Its rough around the edges and I've gone for a Floyd ish backdrop, instead of my usual electronic leanings. Really effective chorus.

    Here is a nice note from our Spotify profile about the track - ".....poignant lyrical commentary on the unprecedented pandemic. Bass driven, with an acoustic undercurrent, Pink Floyd influenced atmospherics and a contrasting soft falsetto chorus, it proves to be one of the topical musical highlights of 2020".

    I'm on keys, our bass player sent a bass line, then our guitarist sent some acoustic stuff that fitted and our singer sent the vocals with more acoustic guitar added. I then had the task of cutting it all up and arranging it into a song, with piano, atmospherics, extra bass and guitar added and strings, synths, samples, etc.

    The outro has a bit of a Floyd/Knopler feel. Lyrically we've done better, its a bit "to point" but its a start.
