I like the quirky, distorted synths at the beginning, although I think the drums at :10 are a little over-compressed, especially the clap. The harmonies come together well by :30 or so, but the short-lived piano riff at :21 confused me a bit as to the direction of this piece. There are a lot of different compositional ideas here, joined by jarring, sudden transitions. The arrangement overall sounds really choppy, and while I like the mood and harmonies overall, the sound design can be a tad cheesy at times and the composition feels very thrown-together. The sudden ending doesn’t help with that concept, either. Overall, this is a good start. You’ve got a number of fun harmonic ideas here, but you needed a stronger sense of flow and direction in the texture in order for this to feel like a cohesive piece. Keep at it, HoneyNutCheerios! :)

Thank you, I truly appreciate the feedback

Loving the sound and minimalism in the beginning building up as the song progresses.
Strong production. All the elements are fairly diverse but fit the mix and complement each other very well.

Really enjoying that mid-centric guitar-like main synth.

Great work!
