I covered the song "In the Backseat" by Arcade Fire using a crappy in built microphone, my voice and my hands to make the beat... thoughts?


I agree with Ornery.

Noble effort, but Cloudy, you're no singer. Not at the moment.
The way you did the background sounds is kind of cool, and I think the lower parts sound a bit better than the higher parts where singing is concerned. Perhaps you should choose a song that Win sings (Neon Bible would probably be a great choice; short, simple, and yet great) instead of one sung primarily by Regine, because, man, falsetto really doesn't work for you.
Vocal work is like visual arts, in that with enough training and work, no matter how much you suck, you can eventually get good with it, as long as you realize what you're doing wrong, figure out how to better yourself, practice, and have some semblance of understanding of music. I know this because I spent some odd three months teaching myself how to sing well enough to keep up with chorus kids in my school's musical. I can't really tell how serious you are about making music, but if you really want to do well with this, keep at it. You've got a long way to go, but it's not impossible.

CloudEater responds:

I am pretty serious about making music although I didn't make this very seriously. I probably would be a lot better off doing a song that Win sings. I'm alot better at singing than I was a year ago. Hopefully I can make a good cover one day.

Nobel effort

Interesting beatbox attempt, but jesus god boy you cant sing.

CloudEater responds:

I didn't use my voice for the beat :P It was hard to sing it because the original is sung by a female and I struggled to sing in the right voice range. Thanks for the review orn!
