Love the feel of the pairing, in fact I really, really like the 80s/ Top Gun vibes, but 1st verse vocals feel a tad flat against the energy in the instrumental & slightly dull maybe EQ wise - In an ideal world be nice if you could add some bite to em with idk (help musically gifted bois how'd you induce some attack?! all I could think of was add some top end via EQ then some multi-band...)

There's the odd moment of ooky maybe like "tight, Like us? they ever" at around the 1 min 02 sec mark, "like for day and night" around 2 min 19 secs & lastly I think "light Like us, but they never tried, Like us" around the 2min 30sec mark

I think all these are issues with the backing vocal harmony Vs the instrumental Key. I mashed this vocal track and found I had to cut the backing harmonies for these very part/phrases & spot fix last note in the phrase from memory, but yay - there's separate lead/backing vocal stems available for this track (lemme know if you need them, or just dip the backing if you got em/ are using them)

Apart from the ooky moments it's magic \o/

Yeah, what SgtMash said. I couldn't have said it better myself. :1cool:

Great pairing. Just needs a bit of tweaking.

Hmmmm, interesting.

If you have the vocals sans backing track, I'd like to have them to see if I can hear what you guys are hearing. I might be "key blind" after listening to this so many times.

I also think I might try and tighten up a few spots and increase the volume/reverb in some spots.

Yeah. It's a 5ths issue. The vocals are Abmaj and the instrumental is C#maj. :1cry:
