Hi guys, this one's hot off the press. I really like this one, and I'll probably make a video for it to accompany the release of my upcoming album. With that, seeing as though I plan to give this song a bit of push, I thought I'd get some second opinions before it officially "drops" :hihi: . Cheers team! :tu:

Removed for revision... because Soundcloud's given the song a bunch of fake listens... cheers Soundcloud, but that doesn't help. :roll:

Excellent work. All catchy and pleasing in the sonic sense. However, if I may, the gated vocals took me out of the flow. To me they were obvious and not needed (not needed in a nice way).

Cheers, when you said "gated vocals" I initially thought you meant the screamy bit during the last choruses... but I think you mean the long one with tape-stop effect during the first chorus. Hmmmm, I was just trying to be a bit clever. :hihi:

Cool, thanks! I do reckon this one's done, but it's nice to get a second opinion. :tu:

Top notch songwriting. An enjoyable listen. :tu:

Other feedback:

* The vocals are too low. No need to bury them considering how good your voice is.
* I liked the sound at 0:36 the first time I heard it but having it repeat so often is irritating.
* The mix is muddy with too much reverb.
* I am not sure what you are saying at 2:34 but those words don't fit in the space allotted. :)

Despite all of the above nitpicking, this is a great song.

Cool, thanks. I am going to have another look at the mix, I'll try a few things. I knew the "too much reverb" comment was coming... it always is! :lol:
The annoying noise is a clap, but I was playing with effects and ended up distorting it, then expanding it with ADT, it's where a clap should be, but it ended up not sounding like a clap... but I kind of like it, I think it fills gaps between the sparse vocals.

I think it would be good to use that sound for every second (or possibly fourth) clap and use a normal clap the rest of the time. The sound would remain interesting without becoming irritating.
