If our hearts break like waves, I'll be here holding on.
Eighteen fathoms won't hold us apart if you'll stay with me when I'm gone.

The sounds are amazing, very atmospheric and I felt dragged in once the song started. I haven't been able to really create a good acoustic guitar sound and you nailed it on this how did you do it?
The pad is very good, once the higher pitched pad came in it fit very well. This wasn't just a song, this told a story.

I'm really curious how you made the acoustic guitar, I feel that's really hard to make in my experience.

I used my friend's Martin guitar, micced it with an AKG C214 on the soundhole and a Sennheiser e914 on the neck, and recorded it through a FocusRite audio interface into ProTools 10.

Wooooooooooooow.

That intro pulled me immediately into a town next to the sea; I even felt the salt-water splash on my face for a second, but then realized that was only my single-bedroom apartment's roof leaking again from my neighbor's excessive bath sessions.
Anyway, this song is really interesting and not in the bad way that most "post-modern" and "indie" music typically is. The dissonance in the chords brings you closer to the true meaning of life and with each strum, you start to fall more and more in love with the very essence of music.

To be brutally honest, I was really just overall awed by this song. Hope to hear more like this in the future.
