This song is not in a battle


Trying to use new recording equipment for the first time. I am not really sure what to make of it. Truthfully I just hate it. It is just too poppish for me. But I would love to salvage it. It would be awesome if you guys could tell me how to improve the sound on the mix, I was trying to go for something U2ish doesn't sound like it I think

Does this song not follow the Rules? Please Report Abuse

I agree with the poppish observation...  The whole thing needs more kick!  Compress everything and boost the eq a bit on the bass!  Volume on everything needs to come up!  Maybe layer the vox a couple times... touch of verb on everything as well...

Ah so you've bought some new gear, What did you buy in the end?
Interesting vocal delivery, I would have liked it raised in the mix, Minds observations are interesting, worth a go.
Cheers

Thank you everyone for all the advice. Now that I have the gear I realize how painful it is to actually record . I dnt think I have ever felt procrastinating so much . But I shall not be lazy and work with the advice and upload another version which will hopefully sound better. Meanwhile thanks for listening

Yeah agree the vocal delivery has a quality , sort of early Roxy Music , interesting direction.
Good luck with the new gear push the limits with it , bit like a new pair of shoes to be broken in but if this is your first with it then you're doing fine, only way out is up.
Nicely done mate thanks for posting.
