In "40 Days" and "Crazy for You" (and in other Slowdive songs) they have this really ambient tone that sounds like a synthesizer tone. You can hear it pretty much throughout the song, but some times its less prevalent (i.e., the beginning of the 2nd verse). Its subtle but pervasive. Its like a watery sound without any attack. That's why I thought it might be a synthesizer. How was this sound created?
If it was through FX pedals and attack, how can I get that sound?
You can really hear it build in the second verse when they sing, "If I saw something new, I guess I wouldn't worry..."
Any help would be appreciated.
