    Not a bad tune/video, although I'm not super blown away either. It's all just alright. BUT. I see potential for something I'd really dig, if each element just went a bit farther. The sound production is nice and clean, but doesn't take any risks. The vocals are good and clear, but kind of on the dry side. I like the visual effects in the video, but the physical performances feel kinda phoned in, and the vignetting over everything is kind of distracting.

    I'm not being critical because I think the video or the song were bad, because they aren't. Rather, I think that you'd be onto something that I'd enjoy quite a bit, if you took what you've got and pushed it farther. Take the audio production up by taking some risks, use more vocal layers, use more verb/delay to get some space to the vocals or something, let your production be a little more raw and edgy - because it's sounds very "safe", when instead it could sound exciting. Use the visual effects to say something rather than just look cool - string together a loose narrative or something maybe? Get some movement going while performing. Jump around, exaggerate your movements, etc.

    I feel bad being critical, because I think you did a good job, but it juuuuuuuuuuuuust misses the mark for me because it's too safe.
