Sentimental Melody (WB20)

By spry on May 17, 2020 9:27 am

Well this one took me longer than I expected. I had a vision and I don't think I quite got there but as of 5 am this sounds about as good as its going to get for now.


Spent a solid 2 hours making patterns, deciding on structure and adjusting instruments, another hour and half playing it on loop while I tried to write lyrics, 30 minutes recording some vox trax, about an hour mixing and matching vocals to find something that didn't totally suck (ended up cutting a lot of the vox and just sticking to the low register part I recorded), another 1 and a half hours mixing, adjusting, fxing and volumizing. Total work time about 5 and a half hours!

Lyrics:

If you were making it easy I wouldn't be alone
And it's making me queasy just thinking about what you meant to me

The momentum of the moment carries on
And its coming back to me

I dont mean this to be hurtful
To you or anybody else
But I'm done keeping secrets
If you couldn't tell
We're surly deserving
Of seeing through the lies
And just maybe if we're quiet
Through each other's eyes

The momentum of the moment carries on
And its chasing after me
The momentum of the moment carries on
And its coming back to me

Really solid! Picking up tones of New Order and Depeche Mode but with a more contemporary sound. Great balance on the vocal and backing instruments.  Your voice sounds really good in the lower register. The backing vocals are a nice subtle compliment as well.

I didn't even think of it at the time but there's definitely a new wave feel this. Thanks for the vote of confidence in the lower register big_smile
