Complexx - Under Her Thumb

Author Comments

About Complexx:
The music they play has a cool vintage blues-rock sound with pop elements. They have also proved that they can also play acoustic very well. The voice of singer Joop combined with the immersive melodies of guitar and keys ensure it has a catchy effect, which gives them a totally own sound. After gained experience with a whole bunch of covers, they now have own material. (for higher bitrate, check our myspace)

I play keys in the band, though, in this song they aren't that important. Please review and check our band-myspace:

Look this girl
She's okay
When she sings you've got to listen to her anyway
She's got a burning heart also said slow down little one
I'll go wherever I goooo

An now I see this guy
He's jammin' his guitar
He likes his own licks but he wants to hear her sing once more
So she will open her mouth
And the words will come out
She got him under her thumb

They know nothing worth faking
Also in the terms that they cant promise anything
No deeds fake with just those two around
Not even with the light out

And then he'll ring the bell
She will open the door
They'll kiss each other
And he will ask for an encore

He looks her in the eyes
Said he saw a guy
With blue roses and a very large and happy smile


She got him under her thumb
So long, so long
She got you under her thumb
So long, so long

Lyrics are beautifully done, no scratches, nothing of the sort. They just seem to over power a bit at times. Lovely song though, we're both in bands now :P

lol, I'll tell him XD...


Wow, sweet song here man.

To be honest, I wasn't going to review this until I went to the myspace to check out the better version. The bitrate you have on here is ridiculously low compared to the quality you've got on the myspace page.

I was originally going to mention something about the mics being better quality, but that wasn't the mic's fault haha.

Alright, well the song's pretty sweet, and I like the bluesish feel you've got on it. The song seems to be mixed pretty well too. Nothing really stands out and everything fits in. I did thing, though, that the crash throughout the song got way repetitive. Maybe it was the quality of the drum miccing you guys did - I know that recording drums is an expensive process. That is just the one thing that stood out to me. Then again, maybe with an even higher quality recording that may be remedied.

I really liked the lyrics - I don't really do lyrics so I cannot provide you with anything constructive here.

The structure of the song was good too. Typical rock song and I liked it. Fit well with what you had going.

I couldn't really hear you playing though. There was like one part where I could hear the keyboard part, but then it blended in to the rest of the song. You may be able to bring it out just a bit by fooling around with some panning and reverb effects. That would take some fiddling with, though. You might also want to EQ out the frequencies that the instruments don't use so you can carve a place out for each instrument.

Then again, I'm not sure if you're in charge of mixing or not and these are just suggestions.

Great song here, man. You're band is pretty sick and the singer's awesome too. Keep in practicing and let me know if you guys hit it big! (I can write orchestral backings for you hahahaha).


mjattie responds:

XD, I'll definitely going to send this link to every member of the band XD, awesome review, again!!! I love the way you review XD

Now to the business: I think you're right about the crash and you're also right about the piano, I think it's too low, but I'm not in charge of the mixing, the studio did haha, but I had to leave before the mixing, else it could've been better, I'm not sure though...

Very much thanks for the review, you can always ask me to review one or more of your songs ;)
