Mmm...not bad

I love those drums!

The drums are good but too repetitive without much variation, the highs on the drums are a bit loud too.
The melodies and chords don't clash well with each other, and some notes are off key, you should dive deeper into music theory, learn basic chord progression, play with octaves.
This was an overall boring song, there's no sense or feeling of progression, make more variations in your song, make an intro, buildup, chorus, breakdown, instrument solos etc.
I wish you the best of luck in your music journey ^-^

The drums go on without any variation for too long, the main lead melody feels unfocused, the section at 0:37 is too sparse, and loses my attention. the pads that come in at 1:07 need a cadence at the 4th repetition. The pad that comes in at 2:37 opens up and is jarring because its pitch changes too slowly, and feels too dissonant to me.

That being said, your aesthetic choice in synths, drums and the like are really appealing and do capture a feeling of the 80s. Your mixing is good and have some knowledge of mastering, too. Keep at it, Alice! You got a lot going for you.

Hmmm, not bad
