Yeah...liked the tempo change on this..opens up...that guitar picking da-di-di-di-di-da...liked that line...and the vocals...top stuff, James...not to mention the other parts, drums, bass...loads of great energy in her...glad you put it up again!
That is a nifty guitar lead, really like that....vocals sound great too. Rhythm guitars blend nicely, bass is sitting in a good spot in the mix, driving this along with that drum track...mmm, always envious of your drum tracks! Thumbs up
Hardly a throw-away song James. I'd shorten the beginning of the intro by 4 bars but I'm guilty of these sort of excesses on many, many occasions so don't feel it's a crit. Nice change down from the C#m at the end of the chorus. If you were to redo I'd lose the prominant beats in the intro - they distract and sound a tad like the drummer was searching to find something to do!!! Ditto on the 1st verse (on 2nd listen). Cool riff on guitar - tis catchy. Thumzup.
I love the rhythm James (and guys) great song, which has this irresistible, almost African quality in your guitar work, love your vocals here, lyrics are great, picks me up!
Well done, love it!
Hi James. Thought I would drop by and check out your recent work. When it comes to writing songs and melodies you never disappoint. Like the laid-backness and it also has a nice chorus followed by nice guitar riffs. I also like what you did on the last chorus with the backing vocals. Hope things are good with you and the band. Look forward to hearing your next track. PJ
Another cracking melody and musical treatment from the Alive stable. I love the indie vibes and the great guitar work from grant and James smooth vocal. Sometimes wish the lyrics would cheer up a bit though!
Love Wednesday x
I loves me some new Alive track! James you just have that smooth delivery and all natural that sounds so musical to me. Love this melody and 'When hope is gone
The day is long" is so sadly true. Great performances from the band!!! Love that guitar hook.
Yeah, i did enjoy it James, Carry On has a bright live feel, great tune, nice sounding guitars and easy laid back vocal. Rated, Gibbo
Ah, the boys are back in town! Or 2 at least...Grant's guitar work is always intriguing to my ears...real sense of creating interest...the staccato picking creates a unique vibe...James on bass too? Lively bass lines...hardly throw away, guys...a good tune in a set...voice is in great form James! Chorus is a fine set up for Grant's guitar meaderings.
Enjoyed this very much. Got my fix of Alive this morning ! Liked that ending (3:16 to end)
Well done guys!
