Celestial Souls are 2 brothers from East Kilbride, Scotland. Our most recent work is called the Mind Shield Project and is a collection of laid back, ambient, beat driven instrumentals.
Our main aim is to offer something a bit different from what's already out there and people who enjoy anything from psychedellic guitar riffs to ambient soundscapes should find our sound interesting if nothing else.. I've thrown some sequenced drum beats in there to help drive the mood and tried to capture some improvised ideas to help retain that original euphoric feeling i sometimes get when a jam reaches the point of perfection in its first take!
Over the years we have had various gigs and indulged in jam sessions with a list of musicians too long to remember and with so many different inputs and musical experiences to draw upon we felt it was important to distinguish our style and sound from other forms of new music available. It was with this intent the concept behind Celestial Souls was formed. Our aim was to create a new form of music which wouldn't slot straight into the established genres you'll find in most music shops. During this period we both became fans of electro/house music and when these influences started to combine with our earlier guitar based spacy, psychedellic sound some interesting collaborations were born. We now offer a collection of unique sounding laid back ambient tracks, predominantly beat driven and complimented by guitars and synthesizers. Our distinctive sound is created with live guitar and synthesizer riffs/drones laid over sequenced drum loops. Inspired by music's power to both drive and create desired moods and emotions, most tracks are hypnotic soundscapes which could form accompaniments to tv or film as well as offering easy listening in their current form.
