I enjoyed the video a lot.

My one criticism would be that the drums could be tighter, but I am an awful drummer myself so have no real room to talk here. Actually a good live performance

A strong early Brand New vibe in the song with a bit of Blink thrown in. Good tune

Thank you!
I'm actually the guy with the goofy face in the thumbnail of the video. This was my band way back in high school, I would take it down, but there is some issues with the login information. Now it just floats here in digital purgatory.

This was written during a time where skateboards and Blink 182 was my religion. There is a much cleaner version I made back on this current page. If anything, it makes it even clearer as to how badly I was ripping off my childhood idols.

Understand there. I have a bunch of old shit on myspace bc of similar login issues. Luckily no one goes on myspace anymore hah.

Not a big deal aping your idols. I think everyone does it until they become comfortable enough with their craft to really start searching for their own voice, creatively. My earliest stuff from like 10 yrs ago was pretty much straight up folk, derivative as hell. Over the years though I begin incorporating a lot more jazz and rock influences in my writing, which has helped me break out of that mold. Lately though, I have been returning to my early roots to write more simple tunes that are more direct and straightforward, without monkeying around with minor 6s and diminished chords

That seems to be there very thing I have been battling the past year or so. For awhile I was aiming for a sound, but I was skipping steps. I was recreating rather than incorporating, struggling to find "my sound". I even set the guitar aside for a stretch and dabbled in some hip hop and rap haha. It was fun, but it wasn't very cathartic. This spring I decided to shut everything out, put the pen to paper and write. I think I found my voice. Seems to be similar to what I had before, but now I've got a better idea of what I'm doing.

Sometimes you have to take a step back to take a step forward. As an artist you are constantly changing. I personally dont even listen to some older stuff of mine as I find it embarrassing, yet I have friends who think thats my best work. I think the goal for me is to continue trying out new ideas and mixing them with the old, and further defining my sound

"I personally dont even listen to some older stuff of mine as I find it embarrassing" I can definitely relate!

Good song! Fun Video! Keep up the great work guys!
I like how it slowed down towards the end, and then reprised!
