Sometimes life feels like a dream that you can't wake up from. "Days Without End" tries to capture that dark, claustrophobic feeling. Aika Zabala provided addtional vocals.

Comments: You really need to post more. Your stuff is so fresh. It's not the same old same old. Had you been doing this in the 80s I have no doubt you would have made it in the business.

Really good variety in the arrangement. I'm more of a major-chord focused kind of guy so I was looking for more maj.
That female vocal does add an extra dimension. Half of the tracks posted on kvr, to be honest I skip through because they are very predictable, but yours keeps me engaged all the way through because of the creative variety.

Great song here Franz!

I especially liked the awkward juxtaposition of your tortured vocals and the sensual, siren like female vocals. I think the chorus really nailed this one. Good musical ideas and a solid mix.

It made me think of the B-52s, although quite different in style.

Thanks very much for your kind words. I worked on this on weekends at a leisurely pace, gradually polishing it. It was an enjoyable process even if my productivity is low these days.

+1 on the two voices complementing each other well. Good song too!
Voted KVR's resident drunk Robert Smith impersonator (thanks Frantz!)

Lovely arrangement and melodies with hints towards Bowie / John Foxx and the Maths.
Distinctive vocal tone and delivery.
Excellent stuff :phones:
