If You Flinch

I chose one of my faves, Feel Them by Carseat. Changed some words and phrasing to better suit the legato/spacey feel I was going for. What do you think?

It’s a lil all over the place but I had fun just kind of finding a vibe with this. Loved getting to experiment with synths and sounds I’ve not used before without the added pressure of writing something from scratch.

Big 80s drum programming by Ben. <3


Dip your feet in and let it go.
Nibble then retreat.
Feast on the dead,
Hope all new,
Bring in the light.

If you flinch
They’ll run away.
You’re on to them.
Just stay here, quiet,
And I’ll be back.

Why you sit there and let them manifest you?
Bad you’d spend all of this time, too.

In the water
You can’t feel them.

Looking for feedback on

If I gave you the Logic file, what would you add? What would you remove? What would you change?

This is so goddamned smooth. It just needs a music video with you and Ben swaying in leg warmers.

At first, these emojis weren’t populating and so it was just a blank comment. And I was like, “damn Nora that’s super clever — Darcy had said this was everything they needed and so Nora commented literally nothing.”

Anyways, dope track. I really like 80s-ish Nora-stuff.

I absolutely love this! The production is so smooth, and the kind of faded drum beat blends really nicely.
