I listened but once again found the vocal to be a bit submerged. The unusual title is a bit of a "hook" but it will help your listeners if you post the lyrics... or get them to scroll across the screen of your video. Musically, I believe this has potential but I'll withhold a real review until I can understand the message a bit better. Thanks for sharing. Keep at it.
I simply cant convince my bandmates to raise the lyric volume. I agree with your assesment and its a constant criticsm here which again i think is accurate. I am starting to think a new band my be in order. Literally the guy who plays electric only listens to his parts. Doesn't care about the song. Its getting annoying.
The song has a cool vibe, too. What needs work is the timing between the guitar and the percussion. They are not quite locked up. The vocals sound pretty good to me.
For this song, I would either add bass to those drums or lose them in favor of an acoustic version. You could always use some type of latin percussion instead of a drum kit if you are married to the idea of percussion in the song (with or without bass). It never hurts to experiment! In either case, given the current vibe, I would let the drums take a back seat to the acoustic and vocals instead of kicking like a rock song. You could obviously change things around to present the song differently but given the current direction I feel this is good advice. In any case, I would be interested in hearing a new version if you do one.
You guys are creative, cool arrangement. Just a little too much reverb with the vocals IMO, they'll feel more out front without as much reverb. There is no "one" way, but experiment. Neat song, I've only heard this version, so I can't compare it to any other.
