    Woah! I think this is the first time I have heard you speak unto the mic :) You sound amazing man very emoish vibes and I can tell it took a while but that is good.. freaking Billie Eilish I heard gives each word at least 100 different takes. But your voice is more raspy and sad like a mixture of the kill thirty seconds to mars and lil peep. Just keep practicing your deep voice as I fell in love when you said 'Hurts' after what I want. you have that combo flow down where you end the verse with a super low. Keep it up! I've been rapping/singing for three years now and let me tell you, looking back I'm like "That was me!? jeez, where was my flow at lol" Now I know how to rap/sing on beat and even give emotion which I know you will be able to do one day except more of a spoken word/poetry vibe to it. Keep it up Homie!

    love the guitars, thats interesting that you tried your won voice. as someone else said it seems like you lack confidence but thatll come with time. keep it up!

    the ‘broken’ sound of the vocal was intentional on this, but yeah you have me dead to rights. a microphone feels like a gun in my face. cheers, man! i seriously appreciate yr listen!

    Basic, simple, complete just the way it is. Your vocalization is just fine, it's unique and comes across as honest. Just keep doing your thing bro!

    hey thanks dude as an artist i got a few tricks when playing guitar when you string the guitar you take a pair of cutters cut the extra off a manurecure i leave 12 inches on low e tuck it under the headstock strings pull it out spank strings with it when layering i love secucesnses as a bass and all around cometogether to blend sounds as well i will use fx as a wedge get the volume right on it it will blend rough spots

    When everything goes dark,
    when the wind doesn't blow anymore
    Only the cold remained,
    bitter smoke slowly descends
    I hear a voice singing in the distance

    "what are stars
    lights from cars
    on their way to mars "

    I calm down, I got to a good place,
    no one here can hurt anyone anymore.

    dear ZoSo — it makes me very happy you found the consolation i tried to put in this track. it’s a very special thing to know when i put up something you will hear it, my friend— you can always make my day.

    Kia ora man, I really liked this track and your vocals. You seem to be a bit like me and self conscious of your singing but you shouldn't be. Plus you know, music is expressive but so are words and personally i love words too much not to use them in my music! This piece also has some resonance for me right now, talking about sudden death as I nearly killed myself and someone else in a car accident a couple of days ago - split second either way and I'd have t-boned at 100 klicks. bloody miracle noone hurt. but far out, it could have been all over. gotta make every second count.

    hey zootman i’m so glad you’re ok — that’s a terrible experience at any speed. i was listening to a program called ‘hidden brain’ recently that explored brain changes that that occur during and after just such incidents, i.e., how we joke about near-death encounters. i’ll try finding a link to it, what i heard was pretty interesting.
    we’re on the same page indeed re lyrics, i love trying to make songs just as much if not more than process music, etc. thanks for the sharing and kind words, mate!

    Top of the morning to you X, (well here it is)

    Oh, what a most lovely piece of musical art here and that guitar is every thing in this creation, so subtle, sublime, and easy on the ears indeed. You create on a deep level with raw emotions and yet so humble without ego. Your authenticity comes through in your work that's why I like listening, nice also to see how your common decency allows you to reply to all who support your work & fine work it is too, had to listen to this before dashing off and starting my day. Heartfelt! Kudos!

    Reply by xstokes

    dear Ms. A! to be among people such as you is the gift of a lifetime, i seriously could never have dreamed of finding a context where i would be inspired to put myself on the line this way. it’s hearing you do it, and do it so magically and with heart, grace, and good humor. i am humbled and gratified to have such company in life. i’m loving your ‘21 releases!! take good care of yourself, my friend.

    Beautifull Michael!!
    You see? With some self confidence you practice your voice more and more do more with your voice.
    Just stay practise and you will see

    Reply by xstokes

    i try but to record and listen to myself is a nightmare! so many takes for a few simple words... but you encourage me, and that will make me keep practicing. thank you, my friend!

    Croak away, it gives an earnest sound to this lovely guitar loop that gently builds and descends into a new arpeggio and then another. very clever. very good my friend. reminds me of a guitar version of an old synth tune that I loved that had the same ethos.

    Reply by xstokes

    thanks, man, those were such lovely loops to work with and this just clicked, a rare experience, haha. that’s a different side of THL i dig it! cheers, Cru!

or a sudden death
could it be more

So I released this song towards the beginning of this year and it's one of my fans' favorites still. I don't even know what genre it is or what people here will think of it but I figured I'd drop it here and see what kind of feedback i get :) btw i'm just the producer, i can't sing for my life, but i did help write the song as well
