Yeah
I like how this ramps up at the start. Yes good jangly stuff. Especially like the airy drop sounds in the background. Would be interested to hear some lyrics and vox over the top of this solid structure. Maybe a little long, seems like a pop friendly 3 min tune would hit the sweet spot.

Thanks
I agree about the length - original guitar part was short so I just doubled it and added the break - I think a short middle 8 a break and then back in would work best and be around 3 mins in total.

Thanks!
I left a gap in the frequencies to sit a vocal in but don't have lyrics - gel free to write some!

Cheers!
Drumming is all done on pads on the axiom 25 - spent quite a bit of time mixing the drums (though still think the crashes are a bit too loud - might fix those!)

Nice energy and atmosphere in the mix, Nigel. Ripe for some vocals. The drums really drive things along. Will be interested to see if someone grabs it. Thanks, Peter.

Really excellent. It holds ones interest all the way through without the need for lyrics. Will there be any?
