Painful and Slow by Marcelo Quinonez ft. 33trees

John Masters

Nice bass lines and grooves here, I like the production and the vocal fits in well with the whole vibe. Cool hooks too -- good work overall!

Indie Band Guru

Solid song with a strong message. The afro-latin flair adds an interesting element that draws attention.
This song could connect with listeners on an emotional level.

Andrea Young

Fabulous production values, this sounds so amazing in my headphones and that is so rare that it makes me want to reach out and find out who mixed and mastered this.  The track totally has my attention except for the chorus, first heard at :51, where the background vocals on ‘what we do today’ have a bit of a pitchy sound to my ears and lose me.  So close to adding to playlists, as I love the reggae sound and again, so well produced.
You and your team are obviously very technically proficient on following best practices online too, noting your use of linktree, driving traffic to Spotify on your website etc (would love to know how you added artwork on your Spotify Artist Pick). Would further recommend adding your IG profile to your Spotify profile for it to be complete. 

Hope that’s helpful, thanks for your submission, best of luck with getting your music heard!

This is really good! Love the vibe, the songwriting, the performance, and the production. I can see why you're doing well in the sync world. 

Let me spread this through my social networks. That should be good for about 100,000 people.
