New year woooo. I'm doing this thing called WeeklyBeats (www.weeklybeats.com) where I write a new song every week this year and this was for week 2. Dudes like Trash80 and little-scale are doing it, too.

I used a bunch of instruments including a Roland TB-303 (yeah, an actual one!) and a Squier starter-kit P-bass. Also vocals and handclaps woohoo! I put this in New Wave but it's really post-britpop/post-rock/po st-wank and I don't want indie fags to hear the intro and be "OMG GAY NOT INDIE ENUFF"

In all my years of visiting newgrounds/the audio portal, this is maybe the third song that I've been able to confidently say I love. Keep making music!


Very well done, in fact, so much so that I can't really find anything to nitpick at.. So instead I'll tell you want I liked.

First off, the intro synth, it really reminded me of the opening to "Fireflies" by Owl City, for better or worse... personally, I think that's a good thing. And the synth sound all by itself I think was very charming.
Also, very well done vocals both from a talent and mixing point of view.

Keep it up!

hey hey hey hey

\I see that you are taking music seriously with this dedication to write a track weekly. Keep it up man, you will make it to the top. Great track btw
