Inspired by a rainy day, I wanted to make a more melancholy song that would be great to listen to while studying or relaxing. It is also on my SoundCloud. soundcloud.com/everettclemons

This track is essentially my impression of Nujabes, a producer whose music I have been studying to for the past 8 years. I often wonder how my GPA would appear without his catalog. The lyrics reflect the overly self-conscious outlook I sometimes hold in the face of love. Surely childish, but hopefully relatable. I composed the beat from scratch and am very happy with it, please enjoy.
This is one of my favorite songs I've ever written. The tension caused by the chord progression is completely contrasted by the easy guitar. The entire song has an effect on it called LFO. What I used this for was to bring the volume down every 2 beats and back up again immediately. This creates a very "wavy" effect that plays directly into the drums I played. This is an easy going song and is perfect to study to.
Of all the artists, composers, and authors I have come to revere and appreciate, Vincent van Gogh is one of the few that I cannot remember being unaware of.
