FLOCKS – “CNX”
FLOCKS is a 3 man band made up of Tom Buckley (drums/samples), Josh Jessen (synths/keyboards), and Stephen Patota (bass/guitar) who have a knack for creating dynamic and cinematic instrumentals. Their new release titled “CNX” really caught our attention and it is only right we share it with you all. The track is a vibrant piece that is made up of solid groovy drums, lush synths and alluring keys that blend into each other seamlessly. The 6-minute long production is far from being stale as it keeps evolving as it progresses with new elements like the breakdowns and transitions that introduce nostalgia-inducing feelings.
FYI: the title is a reference to the airport in Chiangmai, Thailand

Intoishun – “Can You Hear Me?” (W/Eiden Spilker)
