(FP) Hanging On The Times (Harry Styles vs Blake Reary)

Well here goes. If this one is OOK I simply have to quit. :1undecided:

Music - "Hanging On" by Blake Reary
Vocal - "Sign of the Times" by Harry Styles.

It's another "almost studio" acapella, so there's a dicey moment or two.

I don't have the best ear, but to me everything sounds A-ok harmonically. Also, I didn't notice anything amiss with the acapella.

Creative 2c: The ending is really pretty but at the very end he just says "you ain't really good" and stops. Intentional? There are lots of echos in other places. If you are going for abruptness then perhaps the instrumental should just stop as well ... inserting an FX-sweep that ends at the right time could help with that idea. Or, if you aren't going for abruptness, it'd be nice to have some kind of sustaining effect on the final vocal.

Overall, quite nice.

Thanks Warez! The finish is intentionally abrubt, and I thought the 'death note' at the end did the trick. I'll have a bit of a noodle with it. :1wink:

Well it sounds pretty much OK not OOK. From first impression I thought i'm hearing couple of notes a bit off around @1:29 - 1:58, but after the third time, i'm not sure anymore, so I leave it to the ones with the golden ears :1undecided:
Whatever will be, don't you dare to quit :1kiss:

I do agree with Warezio about the abrupt ending, I think you should find a better one, I can think of couple of options, but I will leave the creative stuff to you :1wink:

I like it just the way it is. Nothing wrong with the ending for me.

Thanks Sat! :1grin:

V2 is up just in case. I added an echo with a creepy effect (hopefully). If either version is FP worthy, all good! :1wink:
