First song ever written, and completed. Written/recorded in 2 hours flat. Fishing for feedback.

Not bad, pretty catchy, would listen again. I'm not musical so I can't give you any tips, but I like indie/shoegaze, fwiw.

First? Congrats! You're off to a fine start; it's a real groover. Hooked to death maybe, but that's a matter of context I reckon, and it's a good hook.

And I knew your handle looked familiar.

Hooked to death maybe, I was about to type, "That's where the guitar solo goes." Exactly when the solo started. But then the hook continued. Ha!

This is great. I imagine/hope we'll hear much more!

Dude, my first song written/recorded involved me trying not to drop the guitar. You're wayyyy ahead!

I really like the vocal production. There is great attitude in this. Your performance is good too although I'd like it more if it were slightly less "spoken-word"-like -- ie, cram a little more melody into the vocal.

My first song sounded like the theme song to a primitive hello kitty video game.

Very nice, i dig. Only complaint is it's a bit dry, run each track though a bussed reverb and you'll be golden. Reminds me of brian jonestown massacre.

well, my first song... I'm still looking forward to it. Very efficient songwriting here. Write some more !

I love it, the chorus got a little old after it repeated so long but other than that great stuff.

You might want to work a bit on 'humanizing' the drum track a bit.
but otherwise, pretty good.
