Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

This is a redo of an old song, the chorus has got more energy now (and a bit of lyrics).

Any suggestions welcome (tempo, mix etc).

Lyrics: 

All for the better with a kid like you
All for the better... with a kid like you

All for the better with a kid like you
All for the better... with a kid like you

All for the better with a kid like you
All for the better... with a kid like you
All for the better with a kid like you
All for the better... with a kid like you



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Ferry! This is really spectacular I love the swirling sound and the layered vocal effects. The repetition in the lyrics adds both a power and poingancy. Well done! I like the tempo and delivery - it is captivating!

This pulled me in straight away and kept me there! Layered brilliantly and I feel like I am taken back to ancient times and am doing a dance!

That Middle Eastern melody is quite a hook! listened on headphones and caught some really tasty bass lines under the swirling guitar chaos. Very psychedelic overall ... I can picture one of those oil-wheel light shows going on behind it. Mix sounds great!

Everything about this track is outstanding.
One of the best 50/90 tunes I have heard so far this summer.

You know what man, you sound like the Pixies doing Arab music. This is super cool and you play a great bass, dude.

From the title and lyrics, I thought this was going to be peppy upbeat pop, but what I got was something altogether more interesting: a swirling, exotic guitar journey, filled with rock power as well and peppered with lyrics that, in their repetition, added to the power and mystique of the track. Very nice!

From the beginning I already saw you jamming in the middle of a desert. The Middle East thing is working great! I am digging the simplicity in this song. Keep up the good work!

Love it, one of my favorites so far this year! Such swirly psych goodness. I'm getting some Tame Impala and Built to Spill vibes--the vocals are so bittersweet, I love it.

Fantastic song and demo. Love the drive, the energy, the atmosphere and sincerety here. Brilliant work. Your lyrics, vocals and playing are fabulous.

Dreamy, psychedelic feels - so floaty and just plain happy. Great rhythm and bass throughout. Listening to this song just makes me feel better. I like the lyrics too - it's saying - 'The world is better because you're here.' And we are thinking, 'All for the better, with a song like yours.' Very nice! Smile
