Hey man, I’m sorry it took me so long to respond but here’s what I think.
I went to your bandcamp page and listened to “Perks of a Pathetic Life”. At first listen, it was rough… real rough. The vocal track was overpowering because the guitars were not EQ’d well, but I did like the guitar work. It was hard to tell what you were doing with the backing vocals and it got distracting. I think if you organize your song structure and give the recording a better shot you’ll do fine. But you have some work ahead of you.
Check out some of these bands for some ideas and inspiration. I also understand you are going for an acoustic ”pop-punk” feel, but I still think these bands/artist will help you along the way.
Hop Along. Check out the album “Get Disowned.”
Noah Gundersen. Album “Family”.
Cassino. Album “Sounds of Salvation.”
Rookie of the Year. Any of it.
