Written for the AIM contest. A brief chill song about the nostalgic summer days and the natural world.


EDIT: Frontpage, Les gooo


Music written and recorded by: Thomas Torres (POST ELVIS)

this song is inspired by an art piece by @RK-d



Lyrics:

Flowers Bloomin' inside your mind,

don't try to hide those feelings deep inside

turn away and begin to fade,

let's take a walk and admire the current place

take hold of all your artifacts and begin,

to make the day seem lonelier than

all those warm and sunny afternoons

where we were sleeping 'till August, or maybe June.


Daylight flashing against the sky,

the sun beats down against my beady eyes,

with a warm and inviting view,

I float away on a sun that's meant for two,

I can't recall my summer days, I guess,

they must've lost themselves inside the rays of death,

so forget it, there's no need to even try,

I'll sit right here, hoping that you'll drop by.

was browsing newgrounds for a geometry dash level song, and this was absolutely perfect- until it wasn’t allowed for use- other than that lmao this is a great song, vocals and background music match perfectly and its just such high quality

POSTELVIS responds:

oh sorry about that, it should be available now.

I don't think I've ever heard a song in these compos that perfectly encapsulates a mood like this so perfectly and thoroughly. The accompaniment alone already evoked the summer heat, the laziness, the melancholy and the vocals and lyrics were the cherry on top. Great representation of the art inspiration for sure.

The vocals were exceptional. I love the echo effect, and even the way the vocals don't *quite* hit the notes properly adds character rather than detracting from the song. It feels organic and gives me a sense of longing - the "summertime sadness", if I could call it that, haha. One small issue I do have with the vocals is that it's quite easy to hear the pop in the diction - that and some parts sound like you're smacking your lips as you sing. It could have done with a cleaner recording, but that's my only big complaint there.

Overall, this entry was excellent in all aspects, and I definitely consider it to be a top contender, even on that first listen.

This is awesome - great instruments, vocals and production.

dam, very good!!!

Nice!
