This is a very catchy WIP you got here. Too bad it's a WIP cuz I'm really enjoying this!!! I'll give you a bit of critique since I know that all great artists, like yourself, like a bit of critiquin'
Your variation was very nice, especially the difference between the hook and actual verse guitar. Plus, you didn't need to much transitioning with the crashes which was very nice and when you did use them to transition, it was very nice. Maybe a lil' softer on the start of the crash rise, but other then that, great!
I really liked the drums in general. I'm guessing you played those too which sounded very nice. Your tom drums seemed either like they had a little too much "release" on them or it was simply played for too long. The only reason I could tell though is cuz I listened with speakers and then headphones. Also, maybe just a bit more on the snare for some extra oomph. I like the percussion you added, even more percussion would be great like a tambourine or somethin' in the hook section.
Also, a small section for the 1st melody guitar that's in the beggining. There was a note that I'm not sure was played hard enough cuz I could hear the rattle noise so just make sure you grip on dat, but it is only a demo so I'm sure you'll get it down, I'm not really counting it critique wise. Also, maybe eq to make it sound a bit thinner sounding and have it with less "warmth" if you know what I'm saying.
That bass is very nice and powerful. It adds that extra flavor too the song that's very nice :D
That funky, wha-ish guitar you add in the last hook is great! Maybe a little quiter and maybe panned to the left ear just for some more flavor for the left ear, but it's great. And before the rise back into that last hook, maybe have the crash rise again and then get into it. This song also has very good consistency with the timing and tempo of each instrument, very good!
Overall, this song was very enjoyable! I really appreciate this kinda music cuz it helps me relax and I don't really hear indie songs like these on Newgrounds a lot. Just a bit more eq for some of the guitars for a "thinner" sound and it'll be great! Also, one last suggestion. At the end, when that loop keeps repeating, maybe cut down the repetition by half and it'll be perfect!!!
Review - 4/5
