sounds splendif - interesting combination of styles. Tiny remark : around 1.19 and 2.12 the piano and guitar could be more 'together' - it now sounds as though they aren't really played at the same time. Just on this spot.

This is really, REALLY good! I love those heavy @Jambrains  guitars with that perfectly matched @Zedd voice. Fabulous production as well.

Love the harmonies.

Serious playing here on those guitars. Good drums as well.

I'm hearing Pentangle meets Jethro Tull with a seriously heavy drummer sitting in.  8)

Hey @Zedd and @Jambrains aka Ashes for Dreams, that's beautiful!
Production-wise and performance-wise I have absolutely no suggestions, it sounds perfect to me! Signature Jambrains sound and signature Zedd sound combined... synergy!
I guess maybe sharing what was painted on my musical/imagery 'canvas' helps you 2 most (although of course my interpretation is all subjective), so you can see if this was the intention.
I 'got' a somewhat 'shy' subject wanting to express him/herself, but isn't able to, because he/she is dominated by the one he/she is into a relationship with. The dominating character paves the path for the submissive subject, so he/she can't be who he/she is. Apart from the excellent dark music, to me that was beautifully expressed by the vid as well. I experienced such 'dominators' in my life, so this song stroke my emotions immediately. Fan-TAS-tic work guys, you're magic together!!
Cheers!!

I'm always reminded of the great diversity here in the kitchen, with everything from mellow folk rock, to electronic, and then modern rock. I love the piano part, and a very unique and interesting vocal performance! Great job.

Wow and now with video!
Cool song @Zedd . I think we all have that inner battle to some extent. The escape from freedom.

Cool song.

Like the Merger of two styles almost like that there is a stand off between the two.

Good listen.

Thank you all for your great comments. @mov

I've already commented on SoundCloud about this track and didn't realise it was on here too.
A classy sound.

Watched the 2nd vid @Zedd , wow @Jambrains did you compose that video? What kind of software do you use to do that if I may ask?

In the first vid I saw a character that seemed to want to burst out of their skin (I interpreted as someone who wants to escape something or someone)
In the second vid I see a character peforming an escape dance, seems to be full of fire so to me that character is going to 'make it' for sure.
Because of that for me the 1st vid expressed the message better than the 2nd one. But wow how beautiful a creation is that second vid.. Respect!
Cheers,
