Don't forget to use the "poll"
Wow, great song. Terrific vocal performance and awesome production.
wow! thanks for telling me what you liked about it
I agree with what's stated above. The production is spot-on and the vocals really catch your ear. My fiance would like this. I'll let her check it out when she gets off work later.
wish there was a "like" button.
I'm going to share these positive responses with my band!
Nuthin bad I can say about that. Tasteful simple playing too, that works excellently in the song.
Very nicely done! A captivating voice, lushly layered parts, and great dynamic movement. I would disagree on the mix, though. A bit loose in the lows for me, that seems to be the current tonal pallet coming out of all the pop studios today. But don't listen to me. I think every album should have the bass presence of Joe Jackson's first 2 releases, and after the 90s, we should all be happy to hear the bass at all!
Good stuff, best of luck to you and the band
But (and this is REALLY petty!), I see "Miss You" and I think of the Stones!
I told you it was petty!
Great job, bro !
Simply excellent on every level.
Pretty f'ing good - and I am pretty damn jaded.
Loved when you didn't play.
Loved what you did play.
LOVED the singer. She can sing, I mean really SING.
Song reminded me a little of Incubus put through a contemporary christian pop filter, not sure if you guys are christian or not but something in the sound makes me think so. I could EASILY hear this on radio.
Nicely done. Very POP commercial. A little formulaic but could easily get some air-play spins. Congrats on a job well done. A+.
@bigfatbass - so true! when people tell me they liked my bass playing, I'm always like, "you could hear it?!?"
@agreatheight - weird, a friend of mine mentioned Incubus when he was describing our sound. I thought it was sort of off, but once I listened to incubus again, it totally made sense. And our sound going through some sort of CCM filter does make sense too. The producer is a Nashville guy that has done lots of CCM artists too.
We hope this gets radio play.
Def tried to make this a "pop" song, so I agree with all the "pop" comments too
Miss You reminds me specifically of Dig:
I don't think it's at all derivative, but there is something in each song that shares some common ground, in the space and the melody. Good stuff in each tune.
And I am glad you mentioned the Nashville, lol, I was going to make a mention of country but didn't because that didn't feel quite right, but Nashville does, lol.
BTW, I am going to use this song as an example during my lessons on space - when not playing can bring attention to when you are playing .
Just finished listening to Daylight, another good song. I wish you guys the best!
Good tone on your bass! Good job with the layering in the song. I liked it.
Catchy tune, quality playing on the track by everyone. I really enjoyed the guitar tone as well, sonically it seemed much more carefully thought out than what I usually hear from "pop".
Don't take this the wrong way, cause it'll get you a nice paycheck, but I could see this being used in a TV show or movie very easily.
Dude! I want it in movies and other mediums. That's so dope.
Just a tip if you actually want to try submitting it for soundtrack/bed usage. Although it sounds like it is already nice and tight, the drums/tempo will need to be quantized for synching usage. I always feel like that kills the organic essence of music, but in this day of quick editing and massive content mills, you have to play to the digits. Otherwise, you cost them time they don't want to spend.
Best of luck with the project, and enjoy the ride!
Since I am a no-talent hack, I can only give you a consumer's perspective.
Light alternative pop, although I think that alternative is the new pop.
Bass line was excellent. The measure of a bass player to me is the use of space/silence, not of notes. You killed it there!
I would have liked to hear a bit more clarity for the bass, but in all fairness, the genre supports this tone.
You guys clearly poured some heart and soul in to this. Great song that fits in to a multitude of markets.
