It's been a little while but here's a new song from Pacific Deep.  This one grew from a cool 8-bar bass loop that Raymond came up with.  Carl then added a guitar line dripping in delay and reverb and a new song was born.  The track also features Raymond's DSI Mopho.  Hope you like it!

Like it very much!

I think the new gear and approach suit your strengths. Very different vocal on this one, and I'm loving it!  Nice chorus, and great vocal harmonies as well. Very nice!

Kicks off with a New Order bang. Goes into a modern 4 on the floor kick. Love that guitar-ish thing that comes in 2x in the verse. Nice sounding double tracked vocals. Awesome panning/swirl fx on the synths in the chorus. I really like that rhythmic bass. The mix sounds perfect on my speakers. Catchy song.
Great 80s song. Man you guys were born in the wrong era. I bet you'd be big in the 80s. Damn shame.

Raymond just got the damn DSI mopho and he's already a master at it!? :D This track encompasses all Synthpop elements of yesteryear and adds a special touch for the modern day. Also, I like your voice with this deeper tone, perhaps this is a lower key for you?, but it works really well with this style. I'd say stay in there and churn out the tunes. :)

Cool. I like how you keep the instrumental backing pretty spare on the verses to leave room for the more "sound effects" type stuff in the background. Chorus is peppy and energetic. Seems like good pop.

Thanks Dave!  This one is a bit more soulful in the vocals.  I've gotten some nice feedback about it, maybe I'll try to sing like that more.

We have Raymond to thank for that awesome bass guitar intro.  That guitar-ish thing is actually me playing guitar haha but with a ton of reverb and delay on it to make it sort of spacey.

That is really nice of you to say about us being big in the 80s.  I love 80s music and it's fun to write.

Thanks, Ed.  Raymond is amazing me with what he's getting out of that little beast even though he really hasn't had it very long.  

Churning out the tunes sounds fun, as soon as I finish up this long-term project at work...

cool to hear from you guys again ! that guitar-thingy that comes in 2x in the verse (that LA already mentioned) is way cool, & adds a nice bit of darkness! the lower key fits your voice perfect, Carl !
very solid track again, can't tell anything bad about it :)
