I like the melodies. The percussion is jarring to me. I want to hear this with a slower... distorted... maybe even bit crushed beat. It's like you really committed to the dissonance in every way except the percussion. The percussion sounds like it's from a dance track but the rest of the song is this weird exploration of dissonant melodies.
Lol I guess, thanks. I guess that's the point, weirdness with catchiness? I used to make songs a lot slower, just depends on what mood im in guess.
Honestly, when I first started making music I feel like I focused on song structure first because I didn't know how to produce at all. Now I go in and I just mess around with stuff so much I'm just grateful to have something that I find enjoyable to post.
For every song I post there are like 25 songs I scrap, not complaining you learn every time you work in the studio.
The bass drum in this song the is generic Fl Kick Drum, I'd never used it before haha. I'm a huge fan of using all kinds of external vsts that are free on the net. So I spent like an hour fiddling with the settings on it and messing with different pitches. I could do that all day unfortunately and drive myself crazy trying to decide what sounds right.
