Yeah I totally get that. I feel that there are more and more that choose to use the accent nowadays though, Bastille being a great example, that "But if you close your eyes" wouldn't be half as catchy with an american accent in my opinion. It all boils down to taste in the end of course

Have you listened to Twin Atlantic? Can hear his strong Scottish accent. Sounds cool and their first two records are fantastic imo

Figured I'd hop in this thread because I just released a new song and I need to talk songwriting with other people more haha.

I took piano lessons from 8-18 and always listened to music obsessively, but it wasn't until I started playing guitar about 14 that I actually wrote anything. Blink was actually one of the first bands I took inspiration from because their music is so easy to process and I felt like I could do the same. My other main inspirations are Yellowcard, AVA, Goo Goo Dolls, and anything by Adam Young (Owl City and his many other side projects). I found guitar to be a lot easier to learn on my own than piano, so I was able to learn a lot faster and found it easier to be write on it.

I make a lot of art in different mediums, but making music is one thing I can never get away from. No matter how long I spend away from it, I always come back.

Recorded this song in my basement with the help of two friends as producers and engineers, as I'm not great at either of those things yet. I wrote it about 4 years ago, so it's fun to have it come together in a bigger way.
