You’ve really captured the angst I’m feeling at the moment, the production sounds great, particularly the drums... the echoing ‘trouble’ motif has a great disturbing, unnerving effect also, emphasis the feeling of not being in control... as someone else mentioned that middle 8 - it’s epic!
Sound formed in a vacuum may seem a waste of time...

"Don't let it bring you down, it's only castles burning" is what this congers up for me. I do like a bit of bleakness and wailing in the dark. Great vocals and you have managed to reinforce the air of menace effectively with the soundscape and on top of that, the echoing  backing vocals are fabulous. So much imagination and innovation - where do you get it from?
Brilliant.

Hi @pompeyjazz @Melusine2

This is absolutely brilliant such an epic sinister sound and the vocals and lyrics are 1st class. I loved the dark brooding production,menacing guitars and the middle 8 is inspired. One of your best collaborations so far in my opinion. Loved it!

Your top quality John, everything you do is so well balanced, mixed, written and produced...I not just saying that!

Ive said before but I love CeMz's vocals but what a platform you have given her here...Trippy Portishead beats and fragments...

Its like a firework display on my headphones lol

Love it!!!!

Hey there Pompy..............a dark sound, and a bit disturbing on a subconscious level.
A powerful atmosphere..........who is singing?
An interesting production......Home studio stuff?
Good stuff, man!!

@pompeyjazz
Well you hit the dissonance spot like going on a drugged fuelled ghost train!
The chords and arrangements make you reach for a something to hold on as you go on the woozy journey that really matches the lyrics.
Sharp work
