Default Shinin' Through - Grunge Song

Hi all,

Have not written anything for a while. Got inspired today and wrote this grunge song - heavy AIC influence. Feedback most welcome:

SHININ’ THROUGH
(Words by Jonathan Linton, Music by Jonathan Linton)

Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!

You burst on scene, yeah
Teethy grin with a gleam
You kept the truth in the dark
Gifts for when you disembark

But, you project
Incompetence
And you protect
Providence
In the light
It comes into view
With the spotlight, shinin’ through

Its heads you win and tails I loose
I see what you’re tryin’ to do, yeah
But the spotlight, shines on you
With invisible light, shinin’ through

Secret missions you know
With your bitch in tow
And nothing yet to show
Man such an, impressive combo

But, you project
Nepotism
And you reject
Criticism
In the light
It comes into view
With the spotlight, shinin’ through

Its heads you win and tails I loose
I see what you’re tryin’ to do, yeah
But the spotlight, shines on you
With invisible light, shinin’ through

SOLO

Its heads you win and tails I loose
I see what you’re tryin’ to do, yeah
But the spotlight, shines on you
With invisible light, shinin’ through

REPEAT

I really like AIC and you've been inching closer and closer to nailing the sound and vibe. I'm listening on my phone so i can't give any critique but it'd sounds great to me !! I'll definitely be having another listen when i get home.

Very nice job sir.

It's the style of grunge that I hated back when AIC and other bands broke ground, so I'm more critical than ever.

Got to say the mix sounds good on my Yamahas and compared to older tracks, it's a real step in the right direction.

The kick was what stood out for me. Fitted really well into the balance of the song.

Thanks Erik! It's been a labour of love. AIC are the the best band on the planet, so it is hard to reach perfection. Still not there yet though...

Ps. Pm ansered (sorry for the delay)
