Genres: Folk, Acoustic

One of the songs I'm working on for my new album. Demo version we put together to get an idea of how the song would go with a full band. Recommend listening wit the headphones, didn't mix this to sound pretty for the lappy tappy.

Lyrics:
In ways I know
In ways I don't show
I know I do
Lie Like you
Though I don't mean to
And I am mean too
For you

Why say it again?
Why beat you to death
I should let you live
I like to think that
I have that control

And all I know
About right and wrong
And what I want
Don't belong
I am here
Yeah, I have moved
But never on.

You make sure
That I know
The truth
That I'll never
Find love like yours
I can only hope
That you are right

Don't know how to draw
But I'll make the line near
Anything at all
To keep you close
To me

And all I know
About right and wrong
And what I want
Don't belong
I am here
Yeah, I have moved
But never on.

Wow. I really really like this. The vocals really do it for me. They're layered very nicely, and they pop out just the right amount. I'm definitely looking forward to an album.

Megatherian gave feedback to Interpret for “In Ways”:
Again, your vocal harmonies and melodies are really nice. I like them a lot. The simple background instrumentation lays out a good stage for the vocals to mess around on. Good miniclimax near the end. It felt like the song was about to go into a really big energy-jump, but it didn't. Cool effect, not a negative thing in my opinion. I just wouldn't do it all the time.

Very nice sounds I'm hearing from you guys. It has a great solemn atmosphere about it. It's nice to hear something labeled as "folk" actually sound interesting.

the ending lines "i have moved- but never on" are pretty clever, i really liked that.

Great song! Love the simplistic guitar and vocal harmonies. I took a listen with headphones and afterwards through the laptop speakers, and I think the mix works quite well on both.

Print(the)Seas gave feedback to Interpret for “In Ways”:
excellent sound, vocals are really fitting and add depth to the simple guitar foundation. sick drums too, I like the brushed hits. As soon as I heard this I thought of the band Radical Face, check him out if u haven't, you'll dig it. be well.

The Skalours gave feedback to Interpret for “In Ways”:
good iron and wine style harmonies.
dope brush work on the kit.

i think the bass drum would be more powerful it it had a little more air to it. when the chart comes around for one, the bass drum is so punctuated that i feel as though its out of context with the amount reverb on the tracks making it stand out a little too much.

listened to this almost five times, nice chart!

Great point. This is basically the headphone mix while we were recording it. Not much work as done for a final mix. I'll keep what you said in mind when we do the final mix.
