On their latest track "Trading Time", Electronica duo Allen Folk exhibit their knack for weaving compelling melodies between ethereal spaces within a track.
The background is adorned with immersive pads and slick guitar arrangements that effortlessly compliment the piercing piano's in the foreground. I actually love how they switch between piano and guitar arrangements throughout the track as this keeps the progression dynamic and continuously fascinating with surprises lurking in every corner. There is a deep and introspective tone "Trading Time" carries and that's no surprise considering the themes attached with this gem.
With this piece we were aiming for organic and lush sound, rich atmosphere that helps to transcend the monotone routine of our lives and ponder the time we have on this Earth and how we exchange it for money, working the jobs we hate, doing things we’re not really fond of - Allen Folk
