[Chilled/Summer Whimsy/Psychedelic] Synaesthetic Heaven

Some simple summer whimsy. Only 5 instruments (if you count drums as one instrument): drums, bass, some chords, broken piano and voice. Got some tidying up to do on the vocals but its getting there. Any feedback and help to finish this off appreciated.

I like the 80's feel combined with the modern drum approach.
Your singing made me think of David Bowie (and that's a good thing)

The bass is too obvious in my opinion. I would roll it back a little and maybe some
chorus or other Fx could give it some character.

The arrangement worked well throughout.

Cheers

The singing reminded me of Bowie too with maybe a little Mark Knoppfler thrown in. :-)

The bass was a bit too busy for my tastes. Also I think you could get things to groove a bit more if bass accents coincided more with the kick rather than falling straight on the beat. As it is the bass rhythm has a sort of punk vibe which may have been what you're going for.

I dug the drum programming. Nice subtle verb on the snare.

I thought some of the backing vox and the rhodes parts could be brought up in the mix a bit. Also, the rhodes sounded a bit thin. Maybe you eqed it that way? Almost sounds like a hi pass has been applied. To me it would sound better with some deeper, richer tones.

Nice one.

Cheers for the useful guys. I'll have a nosey at the bass settings and have a ponder about the bassline and bass drum interaction. Not been doing much in the last week due to illness.

I'll check out the high-pass on the piano. Its not an actual rhodes sound, though it is similar.

Again, cheers guys, very helpful

The vocals could use a bit more work, could be mixed in a little better! Nice bass and samples though i like it!

I agree. Cool drums, but the bass is busy. The arrangement as a whole felt chaotic at times.
