General Comments

Hello Trinity, apologies for taking a bit long to complete your review. I've listened to Unassuming Light many times now, and it is a track that really grows on you. I very much like the intro. The first ten seconds is a captivating beginning to the song, and consists of a great hook. It reminds me of a lot of Miike Snow, who is an artist that I am extremely fond of. The versus also include a solid melody that immensely pulls you into the song. The chorus isn't exactly defined, yet, it blends well with the song and works.

My efforts are focused on Film and TV music placement.I feel that once the song is a finished and completed recording, it will appeal to the Licensing Community at large. Programs such as "This Is Us", and "The Good Doctor" are suitable examples of projects that I would present to the Music Supervisors.

Artist's Submitted Question:

This track has still to be completed, the vocalist placed her vocals on the unfinished backing track, so they are high in the mix, could you give me some guidelines on how to polish the song for commercial use.

Pro's Answer/Comments:

Some things in which you could improve on would be to incorporate using as many unique, and fresh sounds as possible. I would suggest taking parts of the charming intro and repeating those modern elements though out the rest of the track. The instrumentation is quite basic. Real studio musicians and a modernized keyboard element will surely lift the track to a new level. The goal for any song is to attract a large audience. If you could find the right singer to possess powerful and more youthful vocals, it could have a better chance at appealing to listeners of all ages.


Quote From Pro:

Trinity's "Unassuming Light" is a well built demo that has a significant potential to appeal to a wide audience. Bringing in live musicians and a more strong vocalist will better the song substantially. Very well done.
