This is my entry for the contest! It’s a synth version. I don’t normally produce this style of music but the song really jumped at me as something that should go in that direction so I took it there.
Mainly just used the vocals, some of the guitars are mixed in low for atmosphere but that’s about it. Would love to get some feedback on it!
I liked how you mix rock drums with synthpop mood. It seems like a new genre and it’s a good path. It would have been easier to create a drum track with an 808 drum machine but his decision to use acoustic drums enhances that initial idea: you chose the right path.
