Writing as a listen.

Pretty cool style. The contrast between the lead guitar and the soft keys is kinda cool but a little weird at first. The drums sounds really nice, is it a mic'd drum set or a digital drum machine? The guitar has a nice path, in that it has good direction with its melodies. Cool progression. Sounds like a flat 6 to flat 7, up to the one? Easy to jam along to. As a bassist I would ask you to play around with the bass a little more, depending on your preference. The bass is guiding the progression which is the normal job, but if recording from a bass guitar, try adding some percussive elements on bass, it can add a lot. Ghost 16th notes and such.

Sounds like you made it on a DAW which explains the cleanliness of the sound. But its also not good that you can tell that. The guitar sounds organic, but the other half (rhythm section) sounds like its digitally produced, you need to get yourself a band mate, cause you've got talent man.

Well that was pretty sweet, nice playing. The song in itself was great, it kept me interested the whole way through, and the playing was very good. The drums are really good in this one for sure, the tone is good, I like it.

Overall I thought it was excellent.

It's a drum machine. I try to use the nuance function (hitting close to the rim or bell of the ride for example), and move the hit slightly forward or backward in time to make it sound just a little bit off, like a human being would.....
