Let It Fly (2012 Demo)

Author Comments

Here's another demo for you guys, from 2012. It wasn't meant for an album or anything, and before you review, yes, I know the mixing and singing is terrible, this was years ago. But, I still enjoy it for what it is, in a way. This is one of the rare songs where I sing.

Sometimes I liked making punk rock songs that were upbeat with positive messages, I love listening to that stuff too sometimes. Bands that inspired this piece include: My Chemical Romance, AFI, New Found Glory, Jimmy Eats World, and Japanese rock music I've heard in anime shows I forget the bands though. Enjoy!

This song is really catchy. I feel really nerdy listening to punk music as an adult but I like to throw on NOFX every so often when I'm driving. I can bounce it.

The guitar squeals in this track were funzorz. Those arps towards the end were love <3

I'm tempted to say the vocals are a little off putting but I'm really coming to respect vocals more as I beat box. Using your voice as an instrument is an under rated skill because it comes so naturally for some people. It's easy to look at a good vocalist and envy their shit like "I wish they sounded more like Freddy Mercury or Beyonce. I wish I could sing, fuck this person." Also, punk music vocals aren't supposed to be perfect.

THE REVERB. That's what I find off putting about the vocals. A lot of original punk artists disdained special effects. I think I hear why. Maybe put some mid to low emphasis on that vocal track and let it rip. I'd turn that crash down a tad, it fills up a lot of space as a pad.

I listened to this a few hundred times on loop. I forking love that squealing hook melody. Have my mohawked punk babies.

Thanks, I agree. Punk music is awesome. Just a shame I couldn't have made this song later, mixing would be wayyyy better, it's horribly mixed. Plus my singing isn't as good as it is now since I practiced more. Thanks. For 2012, I didn't really know what I was doing mixing wise. I like making songs like this though, it's fun.

The instru is nice,even if not the most unique thing I've heard.
Though your singing skills really need to be improved,it seems as if you're singing out of tune.
If you're planning on making new stuff where you'll sing,you should work your skills.
Good continuation dude.

This was 2012....lol my singing has improved much since, I just don't sing a lot anymore but I do have newer singing tracks in recent years (like this year). Thanks though.
