Nowhere Left To Run

Description
Right - it's been a while! Keep being drawn back to songwriting, so I've decided to share my latest offering.

Could do with some tips/advice on how this could possibly be improved upon, as i'm hoping its very near being finished? My dream would be for one of my songs to be used for placement in TV/video games etc. (Well maybe one day hey!) So any advice on how I can get nearer to that sonic standard would be much appreciated?

This is my zombie song ha - inspired by the likes of 28 Days Later and the music of John Murphy but put into a typical song format. I'm thinking of extending the intro, so would be interested on what others thought as well as any other tips?

Thanks for listening.

John

Well done, you totally capture the vibe that your going for. Guitar riff is excellent, structure is well put together. Vocals are solid - one thing I would say would be to double track the chorus vocal section, maybe add a counter vocal/harmony line in the second and third choruses. Just a thought, sounds great as is.

Thanks!
Sounds like a great idea! Will try double tracking the lead vocal in the chorus. Already have a counter vocal line & harmony come in on 2nd and 3rd chorus, but you saying this suggests it must be too quiet at the moment, so will try making this more dominant. Some good tips here!

well done
agree with double tracking the chorus. It may be my old ears but the whole vocal can come up a little in the mix, having trouble making out some of the words. same with the guitar at the end, just bring it up a little, the rest of the mix is great. just my 2 cents. I think it would work for TV/Games, or just about anywhere. Good music is good music.

Nice one!
I've had a couple of trusted musician mates mention bringing up my vocals just a tad so this is something I'm going to try as well. You could be right about the guitar at the end - I didn't want it to drown out the piano there, but it may need to lead a little more. Again great food for thought!

Would love to start putting my music out there - ReverbNation, MySpace, SoundCloud etc but still have a way to go. My dream ambition is to one day have a song of mine used for TV/film/video game or the like but know this means having very professiona... [see more]
