Nice! When it ended, I felt like having more. Perhaps you should have believed more in this track, it seems you put it up as a sketch, while there’s so much potential and the loops are well fitted.

Thanks for that very sensible comment! Interesting you should say that. I worked on it to a stage where I felt it short enough and still sounded complete. It did cross my mind to expand it, but I didn’t have any ideas I thought interesting enough.

After a while, this arrangement sounded right to me. I felt it would be a subtle statement about the need for us not to over-think sometimes :) Things end and that’s that.

Of course, I’m not disagreeing with your suggestion about the possibilities of extending the song. I’ll upload the backing track separately, in case anyone wishes to work on the idea further. Thanks for the comment.

There’s a warm, retro fizziness to this I love.
