I am so totally into this, it just got me out of a serious mood-slump in less than 10 seconds. I can't help but wanting to dance and whistle along, and the fact that I don't lose interest even though it is over four minutes long is a VERY good sign. I especially like the horn section right at the end. It might just be me, but it kind of reminded me of a 21st century version of a UB40 summer hit, in the very best sense. I'm quite amused by the song title, as feeling sinister is the last thing that came to mind. Would be interesting to know why you called it that.

If I had to pick on something, I would probably point out that the song might have profited from a little more distinctive chorus, as listeners often like to come back to that to have something 'familiar' to relate to when they first hear a song. However, I myself still found it plenty catchy, so I am quite positive this is only a minor issue and I don't want to be picky, I'd rather play the song again. Which is what I'll do now.

Thank you!
Alex

This is interesting: I'm not usually one for instrumental electronic tunes, but this one kind of got me. It is, simply put, very pleasing to listen to, probably because of its moderately paced beat and the little sounds of chimes overlaying the melody. It has a quite relaxing atmosphere and is really well-produced. I can see this do really well in synchronisation for multi-media or advertising. Good Luck with the EP!
