A sign of the times, I'm afraid

Ah, but I do write ABOUT it, as I said.

This one is a little heavier than the one I did with Fabienne. Considering the topic, I think that could be expected. I hope you can appreciate it.

Wow @Pleudoniem  . you work with the young you know it I know it .. most adults out there have no idea what is coming. The parents are fine with it because the kids are so well behaved as long as they are in front of the screen.

Anyway, the lyrics are intense! I'm not even commenting on the music yet. Nice job! Really good.

@Bill from November Sound Thank you. The topic is serious, I wouldn't want to mellow down the message.  I'm glad that it hit you  ::e-guitar3::

btw. I was wondering about that -11 in front of those notes you added. Is that some cyber code I might still be oblivious of?

Ah!  ;D

First time I've noticed, really. I shall admit this with a slight sense of embarrassment. Sometimes, obvious things are foolishly overlooked. I beg thee forgiveness....

@Pleudoniem, nice rocking track, vocals remind of Talking Heads a bit...
awesome, you have great sounds coming in and out all over, great detail in the music   ::thumb:: ::thumb::
great mix of the vocals, great vocals  ::headphone:: ::headphone:: ::headphone:: perhaps a bit louder in the mix at some points?

very, very nice @Pleudoniem and @Fabienne

@Dutchbeat Possibly. Could you tell me at which points you think the voice needs to be a bit louder?

Wow! How cool is that guitar intro!!!??? Those guitars in general great. The way you deploy your instrumentation is seriously good....and some of those sounds are incredibly creative.

Can you hear me major....something.....what a great reference to a great song!

Id like to stay that lonely man
Looking up to the clouds
Yearning for rain
That is honestly wet.


Seriously good lyric.

I need to listen again........

@Leonard Scaper Thanks :) Those lyrics were not written by a machine  ;D There is even a lick on the standup bass there with a bow. I just cannot play it with a bow very well yet, so it is only a bit that I could manage. Possibly in future songs you'll hear some more. The effect is there none the less.

Hi @Pleudoniem

You are alive! Lively! This track proves it, whether it's my style or not, it has a mix of risky instruments, those "fried" guitars that battery from before, being from now, your voice and its history
of the real and the unreal of what happens in spite of your astonished and frightened look, and that part from 1'41 that relaxes the song to throw you fully again to the bewilderment of what already suffocates us all with the smile of the stupid ...
Good portrait, you had to be a painter.
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

@LePlongeur Thanks, my fellow partner in rhyme! I don't know what I do either. Possibly it has something to do with the fact that I never use computer generated lyrics...  >:D
