Atmospherically, this is a 10 man. Feels like I'm somewhere else. Love the dejected chords and fucked up sounds you got going on. It all feels very alien. The string inclusions are very well done and fitting, despite the tone of the rest of the song.
I think the piano sound you used is a bit corny/poor quality. That's really the main detractor that takes me out of this gloomy place you've sculpted. I think it's also a bit dry? I would slap some reverb or delay on that to mesh well with everything else. There are also a few sounds here and there that are a little harsh on the ears, that I think could be toned down pretty significantly. But honestly, this is a great piece, composed more of sound than of notes. I'm definitely going to check out what you do next.

I have actually uploaded wrong version of the song which is the video version (linked in author comments). The official song starts after strings section with the "heartbeat" sounds.
I agree piano is cheap quality. I usually sound design all of my sounds but this time I used FL studio piano and as I worked on song for a while my ears adjusted to it and it stayed.
Thank you for your feedback I definitely see all of the points you made. Im self taught and grind alot while making a song and I learn things as I go.

ooo i like it! couldve used a different piano though i recommend stagegrand on directwave if you use fl studio that has a more scary/sad vibe to it

PhantasmosTheData responds:

Yes I will definitely look into that too. I usually sound design all of the sounds myself but this time I used FL studio piano for some reason and I guess my ears adjusted to it with time as I worked on the song. Thanks for suggestion : D
