I wrote this song a few months back, posted it and got positive feedback and I recently re-wrote it and added some things here and there to make it a bit more dynamic, especially the rhythm section. It's a pop-punkish song inspired by the likes of (early) Brand New, Bayside, and Taking Back Sunday.

The guitars were all played by me, and the drums were programmed in Acoustica Beatcraft.

and here's the original recording for a comparison:

Apologies for the pretty obvious hiccup in the outro

Thanks. The drums honestly sound fine in my final mix (save for maybe the breakdown), perhaps it's the YouTube compression that makes it seem that way? Unless I'm just not hearing it. Thanks again though.

Yeah, the drums are a little bit too loud...they have too much "room mic", try to turn down that...

Even if it's not my genre, i think is really good, pretty catchy
a doubt that came to me with that picture in the video...is it a christmas song??? haha
it sure seems like one...

anyway, C4C, plz!

Haha thanks! The drums are digital so it's not a mic issue, so i'll try and keep that in mind. And it's not a Christmas song, I just pick a random picture from my computer as the background for all of my recordings, and that just happened to be of a Christmas ornament

Hey, sorry for the late crit back!

Love it, I really like the rhythm of that main riff. Very Brand New - Your Fav Weapon-ish. Any lyrics or vocals done yet?

I like it; if you get a full-band recording done, be sure to message me, because I'd love to hear it.
