Call Out To Me - Ashes for Dreams
on: November 02, 2019, 09:33:21
Hi all!


Hot off the mixing desk, delighted to be back with another Ashes for Dreams song - itís been a while  ;D


This one is dark, heavy and a bit loud. As always, working with the fab @Jambrains has been a complete blast.... all feedback on any element welcome.

Chorus
Call out to me
I might not hear
Please persevere
Donít give up on me


I drag my foggy head from my quicksand bed
Weariness seeping through my bones
My reticence mistaken for an olive branch not taken
Your coffee an umbrella in a storm


Chorus


Fear is flowing through me
What ifs become reality
In absence of a pill or a remedy
But I know you can save me
From the demons and the crazy thoughts
That paralyse me so that I canít breathe


Chorus


Donít believe
When my eyes are tightly squeezed
And Iím curled up into a ball
That I want you to leave
That I donít want to see
That I donít want to be seen at all


Chorus

@Zedd - superb! Very pro sounding production and uber catchy chorus. I wouldn't call this dark or heavy. I got a positive vibe out of it, the piano and positive lyrics sure strengthen this impression. It has an anthemic vibe.
Liking the slide.

Mixwise, may be the drums could have a wee bit less reverb,... but that is a matter of taste off course.

Killer opening @Zedd - its so energised and almost jaunty that the darker verse lyrics don`t shake the feeling that your call out will be heard :yes:

The arrangement is so well thought through, performed and produced... and I like those bassy,boomy drums.
Fantastic work :pompom: :pompom: :pompom:

Love it.
I think that part of the fun is that the voices are a bit sunken in the backing. I like that very much. A voice is an instrument too. And now it's more a 'whole'.
Fantastic piece of music @Zedd @Jambrains !!!
I go back for another spin.
Kind regards, Gus

A vividly song so nice sung, it does good summer mood :-)

As a not english native 'hearer' I payed a bit more attention to the sound than lyrics .

This is great @Zedd - there's a lot going on and it all works.

I like the words - especially "Your coffee an umbrella in a storm"

The part that starts "Don't believe" is really good. It sounds like it isn't going to belong to the song but it works very well.

Didn't get a dark feeling from this - actually sounds quite uplifting to me.

great stuff!

cheers

Great tune @Zedd  and @Jambrains   ... I love the rhythmic drive of this! The bridge section is killer!

also

"My reticence mistaken for an olive branch not taken
Your coffee an umbrella in a storm"

is the coolest lyric ever!   :)

Good show!

@Zedd!! :)

It's always great to get an Ashes for dreams update! :) I'm glad you're back to creating together, you complement each other exceptionally well :) and I really enjoy following your development and listening to your distinct zedd and jambrains marks that together create such a beautiful combination :)

I like your new track, it sounds fresh and full of energy. I like the way your voice sounds and its place in the mix, and the layered voices/harmonies are exquisite :) I also like the design of the artwork :) ..and the lyrics are well thought and interestingly knit.... great work!! :)
