This songs got some hooks, very nice melodic and harmonic work.
 
I felt the drums a little lacking in energy perhaps, just playing straight beats throughout (apart from that middle 8). I think if the drums accented some of the riffs a little more at times it would have more punch to it, if that is what you are after.

Great tasteful guitar work. A really good listen :)

Great song, catchy melody and relaxed listening. Like others said, guitar could be louder. Escalation in the middle is powerful and refreshing.

Writing as I listen for the first time, really, really good song structure, all in all has loads of potential, you might consider the following (based on listening on AKG271 cans (not the best it all sounds very muddy)

Bass - EQ this to bring out the hook and out of the way of the
Kick - Needs a thump in here.
Horns - Leave em out in the intro, this'll accentuate the double gtr hook, use em a bit more sparingly, just at the pre verse.
LVox - some verb/mild echo, add some air. maybe some Tube warmth? maybe it wouldn't work
Distorted Gtr low in the mix - Not sure if this adds anything, try it muted, and see if everything pops out, maybe use the chorus gtrs somehow.
Chorus - bring out the ride bell cymbal a bit more, and drop the buzzy synth, those lovely gtrs really shine.

Hope this helps




Love the Chorus

Good track mate.  The Middle 8 was my favourite bit.  Might be controversial but I thought it was more impactful than the choruses... I'd almost be in mind to swap them around so the chorus becomes the Mid8 etc.  All the bits of a good 90s-tinged indie rock song are here... nice hooky guitar riff too.  Maybe a bit of mix wizardry like CPM suggests would make it fly more, but that's a mystic art beyond me too.
It's all too beautiful.

Nice song.
The lyrics?

I don't know how to go about mixing this kind of band sound
Must be quite a task. A good mix is essential though, so it's either acoustic (cuz it's a top song) or a huge effort in mixing.

Keep rockin'.
It's either this or that, then again it might be the other. 

And there you have it.

This song actually started out as a  slow acoustic song
Then the bassline i did for it took it to were it is now!
But i did also like it acoustic!
