A Dream Where My Teeth Fall Out

My first attempt singing in any of my own songs. I'm really proud of this one, I would love it if you left a review!

Say what I need to want, I don’t want to want what I
Don’t need, in my dreams I don’t need a thing but I
Can’t seem to release what I want to think about
That’s why I love that dream where my teeth fall out

I understand that you don’t know where to go
When to show you’re in slow motion
It’s bad day when you find a new way
To prevent your teeth from falling out

I like the atmosphere at the beginning and the melodic content. The vocals at :18 are really smooth, but the mixing effects on them are a bit heavy, to the point that I have trouble making out the lyrics. Part of the problem might be the synth arpeggios that play along with the vocals, but either way that’s a relatively small detail. The funky synth at 1:10 is awesome, and I love how you fill the texture mostly with the atmospheric content here. The vocals and melodies really keep things engaging, and the sound design is strong as well. I think you could’ve done a bit more with the drums, though - they seemed to be a pretty straight kick-snare-kick-snare for most of the piece. I also would’ve liked to hear a little more variation on the vocal phrases. Still, the quirky instruments, atmosphere, and mood of this one are really cool. I’d love to see the lyrics, too, if I could bother you to put them in the author’s description. :) Strong work overall, Drewpy! ^_^

Emotion, atmosphere, and catchiness
Originality and uniqueness
