yes it's literally not your firefly

I like the cheesy piano riffs at the beginning and the cutesy electronic elements that come in soon after. The melodies at :20 or so really remind me of 2014 Johnfn. :) The panning is a little heavy for my tastes, though, and some of the transitions are a little sudden (like :34). The melodies at :50 are really good, but I can't help but feel that the balance in the texture is a little off at 1:05, with the chords/harmonies overwhelming the melodies. Same thing at 1:27, but at least you've got a thematic justification for it, lol. The melodies in the last minute, especially with the flute at 2:25, are also solid. I especially like the heavy bass drum at 2:10 or so. Overall, strong work! I hope you'll post here more frequently over the summer - also, we should catch up sometime. PM me. ^^

cute

There's a lot of genius to this song.
1- The synths that begin at 0:12 remind me of Fireflies by Owl City
2- The way you used panning and EQ to make such an interesting feel is unparalleled
3- The melody is so ADORABLE and the climax is just too amazing, especially 1:44!
It's amazing how songs that start like this can really end up like this.
TL;DR: TRULY GREAT SONG, PALLY

I love the ditty like nature of this tune! I especially like the dissonance around the :30 mark, it was foreshadowed in such a clever way leading up to that moment that I wasn't even caught off guard by it! So much variety and really great arranging in a little less than 3 minutes! Spectacular piece!
