This song has a cool, mellow soul to it.  There is also a kind of atmospheric vibe the song gives off that is cool.  Well done.

Thanks so much @Andrew Jezmund - much appreciated...


@marcus_jb funny you should say that... The song was inspired by another songwriter's song that I kept listening to "again and again" hence the line... Thanks for your lovely comments...

I love this one @Zedd

the start reminds me of a Smiths song (can't remember what it's called) and I think it has a Smiths vibe to it - melancholy, mournful but beautiful at the same time.

I think others have raised some great feedback around the production and I can't help with specifics. But I do echo the comments on the vocals - they sound a little muffled and could be brighter.

The guitar also disappears a bit but then I'm biased to always wanting the guitar parts up front competing with the vocals  ;D

I really like the flute sounding piece that comes in around 2.50.

cheers

Jurgen

Hey @Zedd I'd be more than happy to mix this track for you! If you're interested please send me a zip with all stems (without ANY effects) and I'll give it a try! Just sayin'...  ;) ;) ;)

This is great @Zedd

I suppose it really is about where you want to take this song.  I personally think it sounds great like this, intimate and warm.  It sounds like a captured live performance.

I suppose everything depends on what you want to do with the track.  If you wanted to make it 'bigger' you could look at adding cello.  Slow bowed notes in the verse which change to staccato during the chorus.  They don't have to be dominant but would be fitting in keeping the mood of the song. Use very sparsely though.  They'd definitely help push the middle eight.

You could play with counter melody towards the back end of the song. Possibly even a lovers voice to provide a counterpoint to the your emotion in the song.  Some words that indicate they are both in the same place but they don't know it. So timing means they are forever just missing each other emotionally.  One turns up the other has just left etc.   Love in songs has be unrequited  :)

Is that a flute or a penny whistle?  Either way it's saying Ireland which I'm sure i your intention  :)

Even if you don't touch it you should still be really proud of this one. I love it   ;D

Oops @MartiMedia I can see that seemed like a VERY unsubtle public request for a mix!! I was only joking and really just complimenting yours and @Jambrains for your production wizardry but having re-read my post I can see that it doesn't look like that.. Thank you so much for the offer - I believe I shall be gratefully accepting.. I have to figure out if I should ask my guitar-player mate to redo a couple of the guitar parts first.... I'll PM you.. Thanks a mill!!!!


@jurgen thanks a mill for your feedback.. I think I hid the guitar parts more because I'm not really very happy with them (see above)... And yes I'm a bit of a reverb fanatic when it comes to my vocals so I'll see how to address that.....


@Nick thanks a mill for your lovely comments.. And for your suggestions - I had originally a counterpoint vocal in the last repeated chorus but I took it out because i didn't like it.. Could be just that I executed it badly.. Like the idea of strings... may play around with this although again, my skills in using VSTs etc not too high so I need to be careful.


Re your question on the whistle, yes it is a tin whistle you hear (we don't call them penny whistles over here  ;D ).. Actually you hear two - there's a low D whistle motif in the verses (comes in first at 4 secs and is repeated throughout) and the later piece is a regular D whistle.


Thanks so much... I'm delighted with the feedback to be honest....  ;D ;D

Zedd,
I really enjoyed this track!    Great singer, great feel, and love the whistle you have in there.    Great job!   I don't hear anything I would change on this one.
