heart

Great jwh bass stem, creates a dubby feel. The mixture of chipmunks, synth, drums and your voice is extremely refreshing.

Love the groove of this and those brassy loops circling about.  Slick jwh_bass that gives it an extra sway and makes you nod along.  Excellent vocals especially on those extra verby replies.   Love the line "so much that a heart can hold"  Haifway there!!! yayyyy! smile

I like the way this builds from fairly to minimalistic to a colorful swirl of sound.  Also love that the birds/chipmunks/wildlife sounds remain a prominent element throughout.

Love those trip hop vibes.

I know that chipmunk screech all too well.  Like the intensity of that kick drum and the dubby vibes from the bass.  Nice touch with all those synth stabs weaving in and out. Again fantastic vocals and the way the vocals sit in the mix floating above everything. 

cool as hell bassline. nice symbolism. lots of space in all the elements, while the drones create the water rising feeling. sick drums too, nice compression on the snare or idk exactly what's going on. maybe a cool sample but yea amazing mix. full disclosure: listened on soft laptop speakers tho. thx for sharing! and stay safe from the water rising!

Such a cool mix of sounds, love it

One of Rory's best friends is a chipmunk!

Envious of the beautiful singing-in-the-round you have orchestrated with yourself, is quite beautiful and mesmerizing! Chippy!

While cooking, I had a random weekly beats Playlist on. When this song came up, my ears immediately perked up and I thought "The vibes tell me this is an Emily song." I'm happy I was right =P
Awesome stuff, I reeeeally like the vocals in this!
