I Tried For Years

There's only so much one man can do.

I'm scared and I need help.

Warm, pretty, depth to the field… certainly something you can get lost in! Bright synths sound magical. Wonderful harmonies all around. Like what's being cut from/emphasized in the guitar, though it may be a *tad* extreme toward the lows. The off-scale, birdlike creaks do a nice job enhancing the track's overall organic quality. On my first listen, I was kinda ready for just one more gentle element to be introduced around ⅔ of the way through, to *really* sell it. Doesn't seem quite so necessary now that I've given it several loops, though. (… and I could still stand a few more!)

Also gonna be checking out that EP. For now, I think this has eased me into the idea of sleeping at an appropriate hour. eeexcellent…

I tried adding other elements, but tbh it oversaturates the sound.

I'm really glad you liked it! Thank you so much for the review!

Oi, YES man! Love it. I'll check out the rest of the EP, tonight!

Ooohhh, I know rain can be a little cliche, but the stereo effect is just straight up ear candy. This track really makes me wish I still lived next the beach and had a pair of waterproof phones if you catch my drift.

can't say i'm a fan of 80's inspired vaporware sound, but i like this.
there's a sort of screaming sound that blends in and out in the background that really helps portray the mood of this track.
the track overall feels like rain and despair.
