“First of all I always enjoy working together with Ambulo on projects. There is a very natural flow of ideas between us and it seems to show in the music we make. On this track ‘Tidepool’ we started it off with some cool guitar ideas. From there we elaborated and tried to piece the track together.”mell-ø
A sonic bridge between Finland & the Netherlands. Frequent collaborators Ambulo & mell-ø deliver their Stereofox debut.
“Tidepool” pays homage to the sea and the bygone summer – with an impeccable blend of guitars and lofi beats, with calmer & stronger sections just like a tidal wave.
“The track started with a simple idea from mell-o and we then started to throw parts, and ideas back and forth feeding off each other until an arrangement started to form. I remember getting really inspired by one of the delayed guitars by mell-ø later in the track. We did work on quite many tracks for different projects but we couldn’t figure out where Tidepool would fit in so I’m happy it ended up as a single not related to any other projects.”, elaborates Ambulo.
