Hi all,
For this song, Ray has written lyrics on my music and Jun " Fangaliel " is singing. Christian

Mornings, I sit here and I think of you
Mornings, I think things through
Mornings, I wonder if it was all true
Mornings, each day without you
Mornings, I sit just like we used to do
Once a day I feel bad
Once a day I get sad
Once a day I recall
Once a day but not all

Mornings, I sit here and I think of you
Mornings, I can’t get through
Mornings, I stand at the top of the stair
Mornings, I see you’re not there
Mornings, I drink coffee brushing my hair
Once a week I feel bad
Once a week I get sad
Once a week I recall
Once a week but not all

Mornings I sat here just biding my time
Mornings I planned my crime
Mornings, I stood at the top of the stair
Mornings, I push you from there
Mornings, I drink coffee brushing my hair
Once a month I feel bad
Once a month I get sad
Once a month I recall
Once a month but not all

Mornings, I drink coffee brushing my hair

Hi Christian, Ray and Jun!

What a terrific listen. I love the angst in Jun's voice as she sings. It's a perfect fit with Christian's music and Ray's lyrics.

I totally enjoyed this.

Regards,
Noel

Lost love song turns into true-crime story. Very dark and pleasant backing. Extra nice production with the use of so many real-tracks. Very emotive singing. I might have preferred this at a faster tempo, but this tempo allows more room for the angstyness, I reckon. Much enjoyed.

Excellent work Christian,
Writing the lyric to the melody was really was easy as the tone and tempo set the vibe very well. All I had to do was type and then find some internal consistency it what i had typed. I'm sorry I held up the process though it matters not as you've achieved a great result.

What a tune! I thoroughly enjoyed this one - very moody, and actually quite catchy despite the menacing nature of the tune. Jun's voice on this is really outstanding, and for me took it to the next level. Though honestly, those backing tracks also wrap it up. I dunno - I just like it all!

Wouldn't change a thing - you guys should be proud. Thanks for sharing smile

Hey Chris37, what a marvelous song I might say! I found this very easy to listen and I really dug the chord progression. Very captivating lyrics. Looking forward to hear more!

Powerful singing, I like how the dry mix works with the dry murder ballad lyrics - I can imagine this be played in a European art movie.

What a superb track! Well done Christian, Ray and Jun for a super-slinky cool tune with a marvellous lyric, let alone the terrific instrumentation. Jun's voice is utterly beguiling!

Edit: I've just listened to this track a couple more times - it really is hypnotic! Personal preference: a teeny-weeny bit of room reverb on the vocal would be icing on the cake.

Cheers
John

Thanks John,
I took your advice and I've added some reverb on June's voice. Christian

Sounds perfect! The singer now sounds in the same space as the band.
I now get to listen to it a couple more times... wink

Great singing. Loved the break. Well mixed.

I've read that with a good song, each verse adds information so that although the chorus remains the same, it takes on a new meaning.

We have a grand winner here.

Well played, sir. Well played! smirk

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Nice !! could see this as part of a theatre production kind of gothic style.

The vocals really fit to the drawn out melodic sound you have achieved.

So puts me in mind of something, damned if I can put my finger on it.

Well done

Thanks
