Change in the wind
on: April 11, 2020, 22:30:24
Made a clip for this one


forgive me my limited video-making abilities.
You can listen here and read the lyrics too.

Started the song in february , during a storm called Ciara. This week I redid it, to get another sound.

Love your literal video making skills. haha, every reference in the song has a reference of imagery. Great to read along with the lyrics, it's extremely tedious to add that, I know, so thank you.

It's a great song, love the laid back feel of it and the non-chalant vocals with its little meanders and nuances in tone.

The ancient synth solo is great too.

Some good elements, with some good raw mixing. Like the feel of it.

What a versatile artist you are @oorlab .
Every time I think what you’re up to, you invent something new.
Very well done.

Thanks @LePlongeur and @Monty Cash Music   - Glad you noticed the meandering / raw aspects. My idea for this was not to polish i too much but have more of a band feel (boy would i love to go to a rehearsal room or studio and have a proper jam...)

I like the doomy bass driven backing @oorlab  and your vocals sounding clear and relaxed above the rhythm. The synth does give the song a late 60`s feel.
Having tried a couple of music videos and realised how much I didn`t know, yours is forgiven- and has some nice image syncs with the lyrics.
Your musical style is ever changing and always enjoyable; my kind of eclectic ::thumb::

It's got an early Weezer vibe to it musically and the stories got a Daoist feeling to it. I like it. Cool video too, I recently made a "shit" video that's very close to my heart. You are helping me realize it doesn't have be fancy and flowy to make it work. Thanks.

Interesting lyrics... Your instrumentation has a darkness to it that suits the subject matter.. Vocals very nice.. Lovely melody.. Has a bit of an 80s vibe to it... Right up my street! Lovely synth / keys....

Big thumbs up from me!!

Thanks @Goatrelated   - glad the song reached your ears.
@Zedd - cheers! Didn't think about the instrumentation being 'dark' but now I know what you mean.
You're welcome @irwin, @Mo and @robertkc  .- indeed the bass was intended to be a dark or at least foreboding presence.
'Early Weezer' - I had to look that up @GaryHynes ,  Spotify gives this as their oldest song
