"Nothing New"

Nothing New

:unamused:


Ever so faithful
yet so hateful
Nothing new
Ever so thankful
yet so spiteful
nothing new

Bashed and battered
Cracked and shattered
Nothing new
Broken and tattered
Nothing mattered
'cept you

A mindless render
Beautiful, so tender
Nothing New
Fruitless endeavour
Failing forever
Nothing New

Bashed and battered
Cracked and shattered
Nothing new
Broken and tattered
Nothing mattered
'cept you

Confusion, commotion
Fucked up emotion
Nothing new
A Mind implosion
Misplaced devotion
Nothing new

Bashed and battered
Cracked and shattered
Nothing new
Broken and tattered
Nothing mattered
'cept you

Sweet sour depression
A personal recession
Nothing new
Out of this obsession
No more repression
Nothing new

Bashed and battered
Cracked and shattered
Nothing new
Broken and tattered
Nothing mattered
'cept you

A good one…liked the organ…(hopefully it is an organ or I’m gonna give up) strong radio ‘‘pop’’ feel about it and could hear REM singing this…in fact you sounded a bit like them here and there during this song…
hope you don’t consider that an insult mate… :slight_smile: basically saying you as good…

best , Kevin

Cheers Kev, not the first time I’ve heard the REM comparison. :slight_smile: Could be far worse that’s for sure! :smiley:
And yes, it’s an organ :smiley: So… phew! :laughing:

Hey Ian, is there a story behind this? I know I’ve heard it before. As always, great arrangement and mix. You know what you’re doing.

I hear the REM connection too which is high praise imo! If there is anything to nitpick I thought the mix could maybe use a high shelf around 10khz range to brighten up. I have to remember to do this prior to export b/c my Yamahas are naturally brighter.

great stuff Ian ,but that`s nothing new. i could imagine Robbie Williams doing this song.very good.

A story? Kinda… though not specifically, though it’s got snippets of semi-autobiographical aspects to it I guess. Is that vague enough? :smiley: E.g. “Fruitful endeavor, failing forever” - was a bit of a cynical commentary on my musical efforts.

You might be right though I do find that sort of thing to be very subjective and one of those things you can change your mind about from one day to the next. And I’m also sure impressions of mixes change with the weather! :smiley:

That’s a nice idea! :slight_smile: I wonder if he’s looking for some new material?

:sunglasses:

Absolutely true. It’s something I’m more focused on too atm because of recent mixes I’ve done that just needed more high frequency clarity.

I like it. I am sensing a pattern emerging here with these remixes and new material from you, in that I feel the vocal and drums are too far back, and the surrounding elements/instruments are just too loud, leaving the vocal fighting for recognition in the midrange. Not sure what to suggest, but one thing I might try is setting all that accompaniment back a bit using the faders and effects… because they are right there up close, they’re kind of hard to hear, even though they’re loudest

Oh… one thing I forgot to suggest was maybe some harmony vocal once the second verse starts
