Demo feedback please!

Post by TheFates » Sun Jun 21, 2015 1:11 pm

Hey guys,

Hope everyone is well. I would love your feedback on the below songs more specifically the melody, narrative and which modern singer you envision for each? In short, do you hear these songs on the radio?

1) Bourbon Whisky Valentine - https://soundcloud.com/the-fates/bourbo ... ne/s-D13GB

2) Out of Orbit - https://soundcloud.com/the-fates/out-of-orbit/s-6VrTZ

Thanks for listening and apologies in advance for my singing, I'm currently auditioning demo vocalists!

Elizabeth

Hi, 'Bourbon' reminded me a bit of Womack and Womack 'Teardrops'. It sounds like female pop to me.

I like the way you 'dice' the phrasing and melody around in both, it has a contemporary feel.

"Orbit' reminded me of Talking Heads. :D

Cheers :D

Hi Elizabeth,

Sounds cool. Did you mean to mute those clicks?

I like the melodies. I think there are so many vocal things going on that it's hard to know which one to listen to.

I wish I knew more specific new artists within the genre. There are so many. Something is saying Rihanna to me for Bourbon Whisky Valentine but there are so many people doing electronic based pop songs. Bourbon Whisky Valentine could be sung by a man too. Nick Jonas? He's got a very EDM-pop sound on his first single.

Out of Orbit is beautiful when it hits the "gravity".

Just a few quick thoughts.
