This is really good! It has a great beginning, it feels like it'll be upbeat but you know it won't. I really like the take on the accordion sounds. It sounds like European themed songs, (what the artist was going for) but the beat makes it really interesting, almost like an R&B or smth.
I find myself wanting to parrot Real's review. If the opening were dropped with the arp already present, I feel the song would have been stronger for it. You're not really dropping anything new with the synth is why it sounds so strange.
Now, 00:58, we see some of your real intent, which is good, but I feel the percussion is laying down just a bit much. Needs side-chaining or... something. You've got an interesting piece going here, with a lot of elements that alternately clash and gel. Minimize where they start clashing, work on velocity and transitions, and you'll find success follows you.
Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, definitely needa work on all that. No excuses, was very minimal(lazy) on mixing.
It has a strong atmospheric opening, but then the energy gets lost with the synth that pops in. I like the percusssion, but sometimes the hihat is offbeat after the first minute. I'm not a fan of the lead synth, sadly to say. The other elements I like though. 2:30, it sounds like another song with the melody, it kind of clashes with the different parts, the different chord changes, they don't fit together to me. The structure is chaotic in the way it sounds like two songs being played at the same time. It would work if the instruments were on key together.
I also feel there are elements missing from this song that could bring out it's full potential. It's a bit repetitive with the lead synth. I feel the structure needs work, but it has potential to be a great song, there are pieces of it i like. Keep at it, hope this feedback helps.
Thanks for the feedback!
