Progressive indie folk with emo-vibes :D

LYRICS:
Like Sarah Midori Perry said
Black, white, green or blue we are all human
I thought the soil stood in agreement
But the roots seep hate I should have seen it

If you feel afraid
Rest assured, I love every-
I know things seem grim but
i'll tell you
I love every-
I love everyone (x4)

Tumbling
Downhill
We've all got our backs
Avalanche
Of unholy proportions
We've all got our backs
Hate speech
Dated views and prejudice
We've all got our backs

Jesus,
Here but unseen
I detest thee
But hope to god there's a
Jesus
Right above me
I'd buy one for free, but
I can't believe

I'd lie and say it's fine
But I don’t make assumptions
As long as we're all
Alive
I love every-
I love everyone (x4)

Tumbling
Downhill
We've all got our backs
Avalanche
Of unholy proportions
We've all got our backs
Hate speech
Dated views and prejudice
We've all got our backs
Jesus
Jesus
Christ alfucking mighty
Jesus
Jesus
Christ alfucking mighty

Awesome title, man! There’s a mic pop at the beginning that I don’t think you want in there, though. That said, I like the organic texture at :08, even if the panning on it was a little too strong. The vocals sound a bit strained at times, like at :32 on the “said” melisma and again at 2:34. The texture is really smooth and soothing, though. I really like the lyrics. The soil/root metaphor was quite clever. The down-to-earth folk vibe of the piece was great. The drums sound nice and crisp in the texture. Nice job incorporating the structural variety at 2:35, too. I think the blending on the vocals would be better with some more reverb, though. The vocal editing could be cleaner. Some pitch correction may be in order, as far as it doesn’t compromise the organic vibe of the piece. Sometimes it just sound like you’re struggling to hold onto notes for as long as you do, which compromises the overall soothing vibe of the piece. I thought the climactic part at around 4:30-5:00 tied the piece together really well, but then the outro (5:00 on) dragged on for way too long. The melodic content at 5:35 is really nice, but at that point it sounds like you’re taking the piece in a different direction instead of wrapping it up. Overall, this is clearly strong work, though. I love the instrumentation and the harmonic content. You’re definitely a talented guitarist and vocalist, and the thematic content of the piece came together really well. Keep up the good work, Verbicidemusic!
