Liner Notes: 

I had two different tracks come out of trying to make this one, so I'll have to work on the other half of what I made and post it separately, because they didn't end up fitting together. Oh well, more songs for me!


Cartoonishly Intense

July 23, 2019

A nervous excitement
Led me into this year,
I entered equipped,
I conquered my fear,

It's the end of an era,
I draw my allies near,
I've got gifts and powers,
And I'm the big Boss here,

It makes perfect sense,
This storyline I play
I'm the only equal to
my challenger today,

I celebrate an upswing
With words I risk to say,
I unlock my achievements as
I get out of my way,

And opening the next map,
I try to get a sense,
Of what is being amplified,
cartoonishly intense,

What I am prepared for,
What holds me in suspense,
And what has been let go of,
Now completely in past tense

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

nice contrast between the beat forging ahead and the laid back vocal. good lyrics too,

Came for the "blip-bloop" tag, stayed for the hefty dose of electro pop.

A *very* minor nitpick: the quiet delivery of the vocals might be seen as undermining the "I'm in charge" sentiment in the lyrics; I'd be interested to hear what this sounds like with a much more upfront, intense, Trent Reznor-style delivery.

Lovely vocals and vocal treatment.
Like Chris, I came for the "blip-bloop" tag.
Great relentless bass line.
Great headphone noises.
I'd like to hear this with some kind of stereo separation so I can really get the whole blippy bloopy goodness...
Great work!

Yeah, I hate when that happens. But this is pretty neat as is: spooky with an alien feel.

I like the blip bloop sounds you chose. They create a nervous energy underneath a very calm dreamy vocal. It’s a cool effect.
