Great song! The mix and video are top quality too - hopefully the scenes in the video weren't method-acted¬†ūüėĀ

I like the new website too; it's very impressive - did you write/design it from scratch?

Hi - thanks for those great comments - yep did it from scratch - Glad you liked it

Thanks

Nigel

Everything was outstanding, but that little break at 1;53 really stood out for me.  THe whole song has a great groove that had me bopping my head along with it.

Omg so edgy.  Being a romantic, I can relate to these lyrics.    Your work is conistently great.  You should play these live!

Hi David

Thanks so much for those great comments  - we would love to play these live, but there have been  a few obstacles of late with travel!!!!!

Next year maybe

Keep well

Nigel

Thats fine Nigel don't worry about that!!
Seriously.. great track.
I always listen to all the music on here without watching the videos..  I find the videos can take away your view on the musical side of things.
Then when I watch the video... you also get another picture,,  which changes the whole composition again in another way.
Im just no good with blood!!¬† ¬†ūüôā

Shades of Annie Lennox, the whole thing is great, but I love the vocal most of all.ūüé§

nice tight arrangement...

great performances, dig the vox.

i like how the vibe is maintained thru the entire piece

 

the lowest low end seems to be too light for this mix,

if the mix is too hot, does utoob turn it down/compress it?

it's hard to tell with streaming services, to make any real suggestions about mix or mastering...

As always this is an excellent piece of work Nigel!  A brilliant combination of messaging, visual artistry and aural mastery.  Your website is most impressive also!  It is informative (e.g., the pieces on promotion and tips for independent artists) and is laid out perfectly to encourage the viewer to explore your products.  Quite a lot of talent is expressed at a number of levels.  

Well done indeed!! 

Hi Freddy

I'm really pleased you liked the website - lot of work went into that!

Thanks for the very kind comments re the music and video - really appreciated

Cheers

Nigel

It's songs like this that make me embarrassed to share my music here.  I have nothing but respect for you, your band and music.  This is top notch all the way. Fantastic job. The songwriting, the playing. the singing. Kudos. I hope that this is your most successful release yet.

Hi Bat

Thanks for that, appreciated.

Streaming Services - they are an issue - i am just finishing a new album - this time I am going to try and do different masters for different services and see if that helps - I am going to get something like ADPTR Audio’s Streamliner and see how it goes!

Keep well
