    Pretty good. Sounds like The Almost to me.

    Enjoyable song. Bought two tickets, also. Dashboard in the winter to keep us warm.

    Decent song. I'll need to get used to his voice if this is how the whole album will sound.

    Much better than that mess of a song 6months ago
    Still not into it as much as Twin Forks which was his best gear since Dusk & Summer

    He's looking bloody gaunt as in that promo pic

    Sleekest of beaks. So Good.

    Awesome a new Twin Forks song!

    Geez, that opening verse riff sounds so familiar. Can't name it though.

    Might be Spider-Man...

    Anyone have any word on why Chris' voice sounds so.....strained and well....kinda weak?
  9. Kennedy Prestigious

    his voice sounds the same to me as it has for the past 12 years... which is good.

    I wish I could say something but silence is fine.

    sounds like a song from the last Mike Posner album.

    I might be wrong but I thought this was a demo?

    I think he sounds normal here. But thought he struggle in the last released song and that horrid (mostly unknown) covers album a few years ago

    Love it.

    Pretty bad song, but my god, it sounds JUST like something. I need to figure this out. Those verses are an absolute dead ringer for a track I cannot place.

    Dixie Chicks - Strong Enough. That is what it sounds like.

    I love Dashboard, but I am not loving this :concerned:

    Don't get why people aren't in to this. This is Chris back at the roots of Dashboard. I think it's great.

    I really enjoyed this. It has a certain unrefined quality to the recording. Really hope he keeps that for the album and doesnt shine it up like Dusk and Summer.

    His voice definitely sounds slightly strained, it did in Twin Forks too but i think it adds to the music.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    Verses reminded me of X-Ambassadors - Renegades.

    As for the song itself, I like it. Not one of the finest Carrabba's compositions, but it's really enjoyable.

    stay young, go dancing.

    the opening sounds exactly like "mess is mine" by vance joy

    I surprisingly liked that too.

    Verse vocals sounds really similar to this to me, but that being said it's not a terribly unique melody so there are probably many songs in a similar vein.
