Welcome to DMU. Expect and embrace the wave of criticism that will come.
Your songs show promise in their live form, and I believe studio time will allow their strengths (which are primarily in your ability to create rhythmic texture and atmosphere/ambience) to shine. I believe your interests would be best served by working on song structure - increasing your ability to use dynamics, transitions, etc. to create your effect of choice will allow you to write more ambitious and memorable songs. It's an ongoing process, which I know firsthand from my own musical endeavors, but if you keep at it, your music will benefit. I suppose it boils down to forming a musical voice - the more you know what you want to bring to your works, the easier it is to implement.
With that advice in mind, I do want to see continued work from your band; developing ever better material will, beyond being an end in its own right, bring you steady income if you keep applying yourself, and I believe you've reached a good point from which to apply yourself further (bizarre phrasing aside).
