An older song of mine written on old retro keyboards and synths back in about 2005.
I re-mastered it a little to coincide with the release of the animation by Whirlguy.

thanks brohan

You know that feeling you get when you think you've listened to your entire music emporium and searched and searched for something to satisfy that urge to hear something fresh and beautiful?

You just satisfied that feeling for me mate.

Very ethereal

I agree with the Thom Yorke reference, it almost sounds like Beatles-ish, and I don't even listen to the Beatles!

The first part kind of reminds me of any Chris Clark track that breaks down into a rhythmic ambience. Very calming, very ominous. Cloudy premonition for the big kick-in.

The vocal layering and falsetto singing style fit in real well with how upfront that synth is, my first immediate visualization is that dancing synth and it's kind of like a dude trying to climb a rainbow colored escalator. An uncontrollable and psychedelic event where the singing tries to guide you through the craziness.

Even though it's a very tame sound, I'm suprised you didn't do something special with the beats. But I suppose the simplicity kept the rest on track.

I've always been bad with lyrics so I can't make them out on this one.

Nice work m8.

P.s., I submitted a Hermit track not too long ago that's aching for your input.

Thanks for the review. The main body of this trk apart from the end synthline was on an old casio tr-20 even the beats, so i just kept it really simple and let the riffs try to do the talking:P (also, this whole song was made before I really got into the whole beats mashing and gltiching thing:)
The lyrics are.... "Any chance that I might go ahead of you, Is there any chance you might let me skip the queue", then layered over that "If anything I said, it wouldn't be easy, trying to get from the back to the front." then underlaying that quietly in the background i'm singing '"too many cars" but i learnt how to sing this line backwards then forwarded it to get that sort of odd sound to them.

As always, an excelent piece of music.

It's a great song, just to be expected from you. The solid abstractness is always refreshing.

keep on creating.

Cheers man:)

Moving.

I feel confident in saying that you are the most distinguished and talented artist in the Audio Portal. Of course that could be put up for debate, as people are attracted to and affected by different genres depending on their tastes, but as far as I'M concerned, I have yet to find someone here with the amount of ability you possess.

Your combination of emotional melodies, perfect haunting sounds, and interesting lyrics is so well defined - it's obvious that you have something to say, and you say it well. This is clear to me because I can truly get lost in your music, just close my eyes and feel.

I can hear a likeness to Radiohead in there. Your voice is similar to Thom Yorke's, though there is a quality in yours that I feel I may prefer.

I've been bored with my music, and I check your userpage once in a while to see what's up. This is exactly what I needed. You are a breath of fresh air. This is the music I wish I had written, the music I feel I completely and totally GET, the stuff that creeps inside and does things to me.

I apologize for the lengthy fanboy review, but I have not reviewed any of your other tracks (many of which I feel as strongly about as this one), and I am just so very moved by your music (as if I hadn't made that evident enough already).

I look forward to seeing your music in the NG store and hearing more from you.

All hail the Bastard.

Loving the Glitch

I really like your sound, KB, always have. It's kind of like... A lite version of Oval (if you've ever heard of them). Anyway, I've gotten a bunch of your songs off of itunes, waiting for the new album to come out.

Great work, keep it up :D


Kingbastard responds:

New album eh.... If you mean the New EP/CD it's already out:) www.kingbastard.co.uk soon to be available on Newgrounds too.

Thanks for the review
