PASTEL is the soundtrack to an 80's film that doesn't exist. I composed it over the course of 2 months in the fallout of an acoustic album I realized wasn't very good. I had a ton of influences for this one, some of which you might pick up, some you might not. Hopefully you'll enjoy it, it's the most fun I've had making music in a long time.
Special thanks to: All my friends and family, everyone who listens to Nuclear Grizzly; the people who've stuck around since the beginning, and the people who are just discovering it now.
