I'll echo what everyone is saying here: great song and great video. I would have liked to see a kick ass guitar solo though. "Paging Mr. Kim...Mr. Kim Christiansen, line 2."

What is your involvement with the band and/or song? Are you a member? Did you produce the track? Etc. Inquiring minds want to know! :D

First of all ; Thank you so much Foolomon !

My involvement ? I wrote the song, and played / programmed all instruments, except (almost all) middle8 section guitars - and the guitar solo from here (which is played by Lars Lind, a Norwegian guitarist, and a much better guitarist than me).

And yes, i produced the track in my .. i like to call it a semi pro studio.

So .. it actually not a real band as you see in the video, but all of them are great musicians.

Ok so now I have a few more comments:

1. Bravo for producing such a well-written and well-mixed song. It's truly an impressive sounding song, and the fact that you are responsible for 90%+ of the effort to get to the point that we had something to listen to is quite nice.

2. Why did you produce the video if the band isn't real? "Because you could?" The video was very well done, and I admit I thought it was a promo for a real band looking to land a record deal.

Great stuff! :mrgreen:

It's really well done. Trying to think who I'm reminded of... Bon Jovi? Great mix to my ears.

1. Again, thx so much Foolomon. That comment really keeps me going. Much appreciated indeed !

2. Good question. That wasnt my decision after all, but the video producer as far as i can remember (but we agreed to it i guess) It is more a promovideo for Jan Le'Brandt (which is the (main) artist here) - Jan le'Brandt with a support band, is the idea (i guess, hehe ;) )

that is just a wonderful track, as are all three on iTunes. I immediately bought all of them. Like mentioned above, the mix is REALLY great.
