I’ve posted a new track to Soundcloud and hit the social interwebs in hopes of getting some people to listen to it. This song is a little out of character for me. I’m not very comfortable writing in the “happy” space and tend to go more for the weird, dark, or downer vibes. Even more odd, I wrote the base groove on tax day, so who knows what’s up with that.
Most importantly, though, this is the first song I’ve written that I’ve gotten really excited about in about ten years. I’ve had a pretty huge combo case of writer’s block and perfectionism going on, which is not conducive at all to making music.
I hope you like the song. I’d appreciate any feedback, so either comment on one of my social media pages or, even better, make an account here and leave your thoughts!
