Quicky

By filby on January 30, 2016 11:43 pm

This is an old idea that I've resurrected! I wrote and recorded the vocals this week and re-recorded the entire track as well.

Vocals were done "live". No auto-tune and minimal effects - Compression and EQ mainly... little bit of delay.I don't have a lot of experience mixing vocals so let me know if anything sticks out!

LYRICS:

I'm naked
She's magic
Everybody's got their own ideas
What's normal?
I'm vacant
She's the one who'll watch me fly away
This program
These voices
Distant echoes of things that are unreal
I'm tragic
She's poison
Swallow it down like it was your very last meal

I've got a problem here with feeling down
She treats me like a bitch
I'm going down
I'm sick of living on the edge of boredom
On a ledge
She makes me....

I'm jaded
She's faded
Nobody wants to admit they've got it wrong
There's justice
In chaos
A passive play to make you go insane
This program
These voices
Are getting louder inside my little mind
Don't look now
She's coming
Open it up and take a look inside

I've got a problem here with feeling down
She treats me like a bitch
I'm going down
I'm sick of living on the edge of boredom
On a ledge
She makes me look down.



Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy it. As always, I welcome your constructive feedback! \m/

WOW this is awesome.  Favorited!!!!  Love the vocal melody & chord interplay during the chorus.  As well as the dissonant lead guitar notes during the verse.

Great vocals and lyrics. Loving the chorus, it's really sticky. How are you handling the drums? Are you playing everything? VSTs?
