OIL — Everyone Has A World In Their Head [Synth Pop]

Wanted a sparse, slappy bassline in a jaunty lil tune so

Here it is!

Hope you like <3

I like it. Simple alt-pop/dream-pop vibe to it.
Reminded me a little of Men I Trust.

Would work well with a vocal, imo.
Check out Men I Trust, as that might give you some ideas about possible vocal directions.

 
One criticism… The background riff/solo that kinda steps up a gear around 1:40… feels like goes on too long - 32 bars (over a minute, I think). I’d either develop some variety and movement into it, or shorten it (the number of bars with instrument/riff, not shorten the track).

I love Men I Trust, so that’s a huge compliment! Thanks for telling me. I’ve been working on giving my future tracks more variety and movement, so it helps to know that I’m headed in the right direction.

Cool. :+1:
I think your track has a similar lo-fi pop sound.

Btw, I’d also consider having a stab at ‘proper’ artwork, something that might be more fitting.
Or maybe it’s just a case of sticking your logo over the images. That way, they look intentionally quirky, because that’s part of your ‘brand identity’, rather than possibly just a random image.

Just a thought.

Oh, and get some genre tags on there. :wink:

Fair :sweat_smile: :joy: I’ll work on doing that soon. Some stuff I need to get together first. I generally have no idea how to categorize most of my songs, hence the lack of genre tags, but I’ll run my music by more people in future so I can tag them appropriately.

Maybe it’s time I started taking my music more seriously :sweat_smile:

I think the seeds of quality are already there.
I’d certainly enjoy hearing more tracks like this one taken to the next level in terms of production finish. :+1:

I’m doing a Sound Tech course at university, and the current state of my tracks are already better than they were before I started. It’s really nice to know I’m making progress! Thanks, homes <3
