mctown sent me some really cool lyrics, DJTJB and I had made this a little while back and i thought it would be a good fit...if there is somebody that would like to do these vocals instead of me, please lemme know because i made em sound real bad. lol but hey, i got some more practice with autotune! thanks mctown! look forward to doing another one!

Lyrics: 

I rearranged a few sections, but that's about it.

Like someone I know David L Graham

I’ve been dreaming again

When no one’s looking

I’ve been drinking the shame

But I’m not cooking

I stare at the moon

When night comes

Like it might have something to say

I spit at the dark

Who needs love

Cause love doesn’t care anyway

Like someone I know

Like someone I know

I’ve been lying to friends

And they’re not believing

I’ve been checking the sun

And it’s quite deceiving

I stare at the moon

When night comes

Like it might have something to say

I spit at the dark

Who needs love

Cause love doesn’t care anyway

Like someone I know

Like someone I know

I’ve been swiping away at all the webs

And rerunning all the lies that were said

But dancing again would be better, I bet ..cause

I stare at the moon

When night comes

Like it might have something to say

I spit at the dark

Who needs love

Cause love doesn’t care anyway

Like someone I know

Like someone I know

This is really cool, some great effects, creating a great "modern (and very current) love song" that "someone that I know" hook is magic. Really enjoyed my listen. great job all 3 of you!
Thanks for your kind words yesterday! Smile

Really like this. I wouldn't change the voice at all. It all fits great.
Thanks for your comment on Password Hell.

Roll’n it along. Nice collaboration. Production, words, vocals. Just cranking it out…

Vocals… well if I could do the fire emoji here then THAT, like maybe five or six times. I think you massively underestimate your talents in that department. Autotune is fun too, and not too in your face. I can hear all the usual nahlej/djtjb flourishes: bit crushed drums, that cool lead on the chorus, cool guitar tones… tasty stuff, and some nice lyrics - ‘I spit at the dark’ is pretty punchy!!

Actually I think the vocals with the autotune fx fit well with the overall track. It has an appeal like a b side of a 311 cut or maybe a rare cut from One Block Radius. The whole structure has its own unique oddness about it that allows it to stand out from similar style cuts I've heard. The hook drives it home; it's relatable, hummable and memorable. Nice work, gents!

I too actually like the vox a lot. I don't like autotune when its "transparent" as it just makes everything to my ear sound flat and uninspired, but when used as an fx with someone who can actually hit the notes as you did here I tend to enjoy it.

This is a great lyric, I've been slacking a bit there's at least one of David's I need to get recorded as well. He sent me a few and I think I'm going with the more love song out of the bunch, which is not my style, but I just really love the lyric Biggrin

Another masterful work of a musical track here too. Really loving all the stuff you've guys have been doing, you both have a innate ability to put some surprising things in just all the right spots. Great work.

Vocals sound good, stop! Very good, reminds me of 2000s rock, but updated to the present and way better!!!!
