Winter Tunes: Project Pitchfork, “Terra Incognita”

project_pitchfork

Fresh air, twinkling white lights on snow-covered branches, stars in the sky. Glassy synths shimmer like icy crystal as ghostly choral samples loop in the background. A perfect soundtrack for a cold winter’s night – with a little emotion added to melt your cold, cold heart.

You’re going to need to watch this one full-screen.
