New Song - Movies
on: May 09, 2018, 12:40:27
So this is my second newest track out at the moment,
it's inspired by 80's style, but for a modern audience,
using lots of synths to fill out the sound.

It was recently played on BBC introducing which was amazing,
and I'd appreciate all feedback to help keep producing.

Just one guy on a laptop with Logic.

Thanks!

Nice full sound with an infectious beat and some pretty hooky synth sounds. The tuned vocals definitely give the song character.

cool buildup @JedLong  - fine mix too. BBC6 introducing is a great program for new music! keep at it. I like the vocoder effect in this track - but for variety sake I'd use it sparsely, not on every track you put out. Any chance of putting out the lyrics?

@oorlab Thank you for the feedback! I use auto tune on my lead vocal and then harmonise it the second vocal track no vocoder, I have just got in to the habit of doing it and I should mix it up when making new songs.

Lyrics:
i know
i see
your eyes light up like the movies

your face
brightens the dark
and draws me closer

(Chorus)
don’t
don’t worry about
where it ends
just
just worry about
where it begins


you trip
you fall
i catch you just like the movies

you smile
we laugh
your eyes draw me in closer

(Chorus)
don’t
don’t worry about
where it ends
just
just worry about
where it begins

It's very dreamy and full of interest. Lots of control over the light and shade, and an original atmosphere created.

Well done on the BBC6 outing, hope there's more to come!  ::thumb::
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

hi @JedLong, sounds good...i loved the very laid back intro, and the 80's synth and drum computer handclapp and beat sound

and how you then make the sound full and warm then

very cool  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

i perhaps wouldn't drop back that far after that chorus...all the way back to the handclaps

but then again, that makes the next full part work perfect again

 ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

very, very nice!!!!  ::headphone:: ::headphone:: ::headphone::

@Dutchbeat  thank you, appreciate it! And yeah I see what you mean, hard to balance coming out of the chorus, but Iíll try and do it differently next time to see how it sounds  ::thumb::

Good work for getting on BBC Introducing. I love songs like this (80's throwback). Sound a little like The 1975 which is a huge compliment. I'm not too keen on the vocals if i'm honest, a bit too robotic/washed in effects and high pitched for my ears but the music is quality.

@realkevm thanks! really appreciate it, definitely similar to their style, glad you enjoyed it. and yeah not everyones taste i know with my vocals, I need to invest in mics, this is all recorded straight through the laptop, hopefully the quality of vocals will improve. I can't help myself adding effects haha just love using them!
