This is really just a demo; nothing that I'm going to re-work for final presentation or anything. But I am completely re-recording it for an EP that I am working on. Just want to all to hear the song and let me know what you think.

nothing wrong ... lots right. demo values for sure though ...needing lots of tightening up on quite a bit but ....

very upbeat. very cool verse melody at first but I wonder if it might need some mixing up to stave off a little redundancy by the end of the song? even though it's short - I get the feeling it might wear a bit thin on repeated listens. the chorus is wanting to be infectious but it's missing a little something. it may be the lack of really nailing the "hey" that's a bit of a bother ... something that might be balanced by using a staggered group of harmonies on the hey ... hey hEY HEY .. .60's styled - maybe beatlesquelike.

like the lead interlude, even the dirt tube sound ...also tho, wonder if a C section (bridge) vocally might break up the verse melody thought I had earlier. something that seems to be related but holding a bit different melodic vibe. the breakdown helps - works even - but it's still keeping in line totally with what came before.

but with all that said - as is, I'm still liking it a lot, just sorta wishing it would make more of itself. good luck on the redux.

It's a fun ditty, but I'm almost certain you could come up with a more interesting verse melody.
