I really enjoyed it. I liked the call and response with the male and female voices. I can see this being in a the credits of a movie or even a music video. Nice job!
Thanks Devin! I appreciate the feedback.

Listened, liked, came back for more.

I think the vocals are fine in the verses, but you could separate them more in the chorus.
Thanks sjm! The video contains a newer mix with some minor tweaks to the chorus vox.

Cool!... :dog: :hihi:

I listened on my laptop speakers a couple of days ago, and didn't want to comment then, but just now listened on my reference monitors and can honestly say that it sounds good to me! The song as far as writing, the singing, and the mix... all good, I really can't think of anything to critique.

Nothing wrong with the vocals in the chorus either (maybe you've changed it since those comments were made). In theory, the male and female voices should be fine dead in the centre, because your voices couldn't be more different!

I'd probably put a lot of plate reverb on the male vocal... but then everybody would moan about the plate reverb on the vocals. :hihi: I truly believe that there are many "right ways" to mix a song, two people could mix the same song completely differently, yet they'd both be as right as each other.

Oh, and I immediately thought of the soundtrack from the movie Drive... so that's another lil' bonus. :clap:

Nice tune! Well done.

It does sound like post Spiders D.Bowie. The female vocalist seemed to have a nice country style voice in her solo.

:tu:
Thanks Phil! Yes, I do get a lot of comparisons to Mr. Bowie.

I guess Aika is a country gal from the Philipines? :)

Good work Frantz. I would've liked for the drums to stop for contrast for little bit. It sounds great nonetheless.
