Interesting. There were a couple of chord changes that caught me off guard. I like that. And you're right about the influences, I could hear them come through in the vocals and the arrangement. (Waterboys? Interpol?) If I have one criticism, it's that I think you have to do something more with the bridge. It's basically a recitation of the central figure of the song. By keeping it the same, the song seems longer than it is. Given the bridge is both a transition and a way of elevating the emotion of the song, what changes could you make the recording to give it that extra lift?
