To prepare myself for travelling I wrote a suitcase song:

Delsey
https://soundcloud.com/oorlab/delsey 

My trusted Desley,
where would I be without you
You carry mine,
I carry you
Together we go places, and pull it through

Here comes another transit
ready or not,
Another check-in
in another spot,
ID, OD
What is next?
It takes a clairvoyant,
to know what to expect...

Take me to customs
to file a report

On the road to nowhere
(that's wehre we want to be)

The label is lost,
the key is broken.
But we'll carry on,
by the same token.

My trusted Desley,
where would I be without you
You carry mine,
I carry you
Together we go places, and pull it through

My trusted Desley
(shoop - shoop- shoop dohwaaah)

My trusted Desley
(shoop - shoop- shoop dohwaaah)

Comments, feedback, new ideas for the track, lyrics and mix most welcome

Hola @oorlab
I like the lyrics, I read them before listening and then I listened to the track and I liked it, the rhythm is great, dynamic, great to start traveling with a suitcase full of yourself, in reality....
The rhythm stops come in handy, they play great with the lyrics.

Stay well

Mora

Hey Oorlab . . . pretty funky delivery, lots of interesting change ups, really enjoyed this ! Fun in the lyrics.
Perhaps my favourite part is "Take me to customs, to file a report" . . . delightfully sarcastic the way you inserted that.
The end monologue sounds like you're travelling to eastern Canada, western Canada would have been a better choice :)

this is nice.  the vibe is funky but comes across as psychedelic too.  the acoustic little wah riff may be too loud but iím weird i may take out the guitar all together. shrug. nice work.

Love the funky Disco beat and the tasty guitar licks! All tied nicely together with the vocals and the story.

Was hoping to give some advice on the mix... but what can I say? Nothing wrong with that mix! Everything crisp and clear (especially that snappy percussion!)  :pompom:

Enjoyed it very much @oorlab  :yes: :thumbsup:

Like @Mora Amaro La Loba , I read first and will be back for a thorough listen.
And it includes clairvoyant (Amsterdam dialect: klŤrvojunt) so thatís a bonus kudo from me to you.
Iíll be around, donít worry @oorlab
Kind regards, Gus
