So this is pretty good, I'd almost call it charming cause the guy down below is right it sounds like an indie song. Its composition kind of reminds me of a more structured "Frank" soundtrack (great indie music in that movie).
I'll go ahead and start with the problems. Its really obvious you are not particularly adept at music production. While its clear you're basing your instrumentation off a indie 5-piece band, but you clearly don't know how to mix these fake instruments in a convincing way. This track is dying for 1)better samples, something other than directwave instruments from Fruity Loops 2) More mixing and processing like reverb, delay, and whats great is with indie you can stylize how you mix. You could mix it to sound like its being played in a bar or something.
If you knew how to push your production sound further this would be a nice little indie track that I would download and listen to in my car. Or if you somehow recorded this with a four piece band (which, I know, is super hard).
Besides the production though, the composition is really nice. Its very clean, not cluttered, and sticks in your head. Its very calming, almost nostalgic. Not used to hearing nice compositions from this level of production quality.
Keep at it! This stuff is really nice, you just have some things to learn!
Hi, first at all, thank you so much for letting us know your opinion. We're actually a band but this song, and the other ones i uploaded weren't recorded by us, we use Guitar Pro 6 soundbanks, a program were you can archive and write your own partitures, and can reproduce the sound of a lot of instruments, a really good program to practice your instrument, or even with the band, cause right now we're a 3 piece band, we don't have drummer, and until we found one, Guitar Pro is like our drummer, all we need is a laptop and a stereo, and we have a fake drummer playing for us. We're pretty young, we were just practicing with it, playing instrumental covers of bands and that, discovering music. Then, we had the idea and we wanted to start practicing composition. It's a pretty cool program to practice composition actually, but of course, the sound it's not 100% convincent. This song its pretty old, but i uploaded one with small changes in instruments and with a LOT better sound, so if you don't like too much the sound right now, i don't know what would you think of the older version. But thank you so much for that, we're trying to found drummer and the other guitarist it's learning to sing, and maybe, we can record this in a studio, but by the way, it's a fun song to play.
This song really sounds like an indie song. I think the instrumentation is very well arranged and the melody is uplifting and varies so it does not get boring. I like the little disonances during the main parts, it makes you listen more carefully to the song again. Also the mastering is very clear without clipping or mashing. Only thing that I don't like is that till 0:44 and from 1:35 till 2:40 the pan of the lead is too much on the left side, which is very distracting. But all in all a very nice piece of music. Keep it up :)
Thank you very much, glad you liked it!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
