Hi there! Just finished my latest track and did the first master on it. Would love to get some feedback (song itself/composition/performance) because I'm not able to hear it objectively anymore and I desperately your fresh ears to give me some insights again ;) Also posted this on soundgym so sorry for the guys, which are on both platforms. Just that you know: I like to post it on both platforms because here are more musicians, which can give me a different kind of feedback. Thank you so much for helping!

I would try the bassdrum a bit down, perhaps. It's rather fat for the mood imho.

I think I would like a little bit of a longer intro before the vocal comes in, not much more but just a little more instrumental. Just my two cents *shrug* :) Really cool, vibey track!

First of all: great track, man. Really enjoyed it.

I'm a drummer, so I'm sure there's a little bias to my ears. To me, starting at ~:50, the song is begging for a steady quarter-note pulse on the bass drum during this section; that might be a cool way to bring the energy up before letting it back down during the break. Also, the snare is very good here, but it might also be cool to periodically have a sharper, crisper sound to highlight certain sections or phrases.

I also agree with a previous comment about a little more intro material. Maybe having the guitars come in solo for a few measures before bringing everything else in would be nice. Then again, the abrupt start is a cool way to come in.

Nice track. For me the vocals were a little too much in the back, but that's personal taste.

I thought beginning with the kick on the first beat was too abrupt – no necessarily a bad thing, but it didn't fit with the general vibe of the track. Perhaps you could add an instrumental intro. This could also provide more of a hook into the rest of the song. The same intro material could be reintroduced in the outro – that was the other weakness for me, the end just left me hanging a bit...

Thank you all for your feedback!!! I will rethink about the intro and maybe try something! Thanks! Is anybody able to tell me what genre my song is? I'm a bit clueless.
