This is an acoustic version of an Brit Pop indie inspired song that I wrote and one day I hope to record it with full accompaniment of drums and electric guitar.
Enjoy!

@mazzmarriott Well, I wonder, what is keeping you then? There are lots of drum machines on the web that sound eerily realistic, also for indie-punk like yours. If you record the guitar in a DAW and then add a VST-distortion modeler to it, you have your e-guitar. When you've done that, you record the vocal. A routine job, really...

I don't know if you have a bass guitar, and if you know how to play it, but I am dead sure that on this forum, there will be people who'd be happy to play a bass track for you.

Ok, it may not be in a recording studio yet, but it will definitely give listeners an idea of what your intention is.

I think the song is worth it.

@mazzmarriott  - coll - the opening verse remins me of Poythene Pam from Abbey Road - but then you go into a new direction.
Good luck with finding a proper band. I'd keep the acoustic guitar in there for sure. May be do a bit of Talk-Talk meets Radiohead, in an Oasis setting.

Cool song and performance.

Sounds good like this, stripped down and live.

Nice guitar playing - you keep a really good rhythm while you sing - not always that easy. Well for me anyway as I keep going in and out of time!

It would be interesting to hear with drums and bass etc. so as @Pleudoniem says - what's keeping you?  ;D

cheers
