My debut single from April, classified as Jangle-Pop but of course no genre selection has it. Kind of an 80's vibe I've been told anyway.

If you want to use Still There or The Rain for any projects just message me or email me at zacharyarcurran@gmail.com (I'll most probably say yes, I'd just like to know first!).

Lyrics:
All my life I’ve been searching for that sane place in my mind,
Don’t try to open the door ‘cause we both know what you’ll find,
Don’t go looking at my face looking at my space no more,
I don’t want to start chase, looking to replace what’s gone before

For the first time I close my eyes and I finally see black
Gone are the lies and the broken skies but I know that they’ll be back
A respite from my shakes my walls break and fade
A way to fix the mistakes because my soul aches from your blades

So you try to look inside your heart and say it’s still there.,
You’re only kidding yourself you placed it on a shelf made of disrepair,
You’ve got to find the way but if you don’t stay you’ll never find out
I’ll try to right your wrongs try to write those songs that they scream and shout

Lay down your arms and fight your fears and I’ll help you on your way,
There’ll be no truth in the crocodile tears once your debt to us is paid,
Redeem your life from the oversights in your cold as ice routines,
The end of the tunnel shows the light so should throw you plight to the sea

Won't you try to look inside your heart and say it’s still there.,
You’re only kidding yourself you placed it on a shelf made of disrepair,
You’ve got to find the way but if you don’t stay you’ll never find out
I’ll try to right your wrongs try to write those songs that they scream and shout

I like the groovy guitars at the beginning. I love the soul that your voice has. It's a really catchy, yet down-to-earth and organic-sounding piece. I love the classic rock sort of vibe it has. I'm pretty sure you're the only competitor to submit a classic rock-style song to the competition, at least among the Underdogs group. I really like the dry-throated twang your voice has, which is especially noticeable at places like :30. I like the lyrics too, but I really wish you put them in the description (because I'm terrible at discerning lyrics from listening to the music along). You even went for some layered recordings around the 3-minute mark (which I've tried before and they're really hard to do), and they sounded great! One complaint I have is that there isn't really a moment of structural relief in this piece. It's already pretty long, but I think it would help the flow of this piece if at some point you had had a breakdown or re-intro with some dynamic contrast, and then an epic guitar solo before launching into your last refrain. Still, I really liked the ending - the vocal samples fit in well - and I think the mixing was also rather good. Very unique content (compared to many of the rest of the competitors)! Well done, ZacCurran! Keep up the great work! ^^

9.5/10
