Videogame composer, instrumentalist and songwriter Philip Pendleton has released his latest instrumental synth score, Welcome to Orange County. The subversively chilly soundscape detracts from the warm LA warmth to introduce you to a darker side of the metropolis.
The ornate synths carry orchestral undertones in their glassily spacey timbre, bringing with them a beguiling sense of dystopia while you immerse yourself in the UK-born, USA-residing composer’s depiction of the region.
Being the son of the founder of the 60s pop group, Pretty Things could have easily left Pendleton in the shadow of his father’s supremacy; on the basis of his accoladed career and the cinematic distinction in Welcome to Orange County, he notably stepped into his own limelight.
Welcome to Orange County officially released on September 21st. Check it out on Spotify.
