Just fineshed recording, mixing and mestering my song.

I wrote this song back in 2014, and now decided to finish it, mix and master. I'm an amateur singer, so sang how I felt it, what do you think on vocals?

Decided to not "over-loud" the master, now it's DR6.

Love Truth. (Maniac) by Dani Ryan | Free Listening on SoundCloud

I will release it this week. But before that , I want your opinions on what is wrong or maybe some suggestion on vocals?

P.S. what do you think on the name? I'm thinking "Love Truth." or "Maniac"

The song is posted as "private", so I can't listen to it.

I think your vocal works pretty nicely. The overall effect is reminiscent of Talking Heads (the funky pop music, the reedy, post-ironic vocal style) without sounding like a knock-off. The arrangement suggests a good sense of the pop sensibilities you embrace. Good work and, indeed, catchy/

If you have to ask what other people think of your
track, then you already know it’s not good.

The day will come when you no longer
need the opinions of others.

I don't necessarily agree. If you are getting comfortable with your voice or guitar tone or anything, and want to know how others view it, it's helpful to get feedback.

And it's not always about technical good/bad, but the vibe and impressions given to the listeners, and all the touchy feely stuff.

exactly, I know that It's not ideal, and that's why maybe somebody can point something out and give me new things to think about. It's all about to not work in isolation and have other input.

wow never heard of Talking Heads! They sound cool! Well it was a pop experiment, I'm kind of trying to develop my own style called Hard-pop. Thanks for your opinion

P.S. just checked my spotifiy, actually I had burning down the house in my playlist :D

I like it.
Somehow I'm thinking Franz Ferdinand

Of course the production needs a lot work, but a catchy tune
