This was my favorite track of the whole EP! It's such an earworm, the tune got into my head right from the get-go. One thing that stood out to me (and that I heard in the rest of the tracks on Limits) was the vibe that that the percussion was very "playful", if that makes sense? I thought that it intertwined really well with the melodies.

I really love the artwork you made for the EP, too - it has a lot of character, and I think it fits the music really well. Bit of a shame that the audio player only shows the waveform now; it would've been cool to see the artwork spinning around like a record, like you could display on the old version of the player.

Oh, and this isn't really related to the song at hand, but it would be cool if you posted the lyrics to Thought Spiral in the description for that track! Your voice is pretty clear on that one, but there are just a few spots here and there where where I had a hard time figuring out exactly what was said.

Wrapping things up though, you did some great work with this song, and the EP as a whole! Catchy tunes, solid production, and the artwork is the cherry on top.

Thanks so much for the listen and review! I'm glad the percussion stood out, I've been listening to a lot of Fela Kuti and Talking Heads and was trying to channel that Afrodisiac/Remain In Light percussion sound a bit. Trying to turn probably the most stressful month of the pandemic for me into some dance music, living by the wise words of LCD Soundsystem, "dance yrself clean."

Also if you're curious about the artwork, the code for it is up here: https://codepen.io/davepvm/pen/vYXQwBv

Lyrics are now available in that song's description!
