This is a very decent and polished rock n roll song. It's gnarly and talks about money and the occasional lack of it. That is real life. It sounds like a song by a band that is good.
This is soooooo 90s / early 200s. It was a very nostalgic listen for me. Good luck with the release!
I'm a big prog fan so this is already in my favored style. The riffs are crisp but the solos are interesting without being over-complicated. It's not a long song so it doesn't have too far to meander, meaning it remains concise, which I often find is helpful with instrumental tracks. I'd give the rest of the EP a go and I'd probably come to see you live if the venue was fun and not too far away! I bet there's a good concept behind the title, eh? Telling that story as part of the complete music release could mark you out as different from the pack. Don't hide it! There's a market for bands who think deeply about all aspects of their output and cross media to deliver their message.
This is pretty cool chuggy alt-rock with a metallic edge. Sounds like a band that could open for Stone Temple Pilots or Avenged Sevenfold or someone like that on a regional tour. The guitars are good but I'd like the vocals to be a bit higher in the mix and a bit better in general, but this is an ok effort.
This is a cool song. Retro psychedelia is always going to work well. It's got legs on the live circuit - the prog scene is thriving - and could even get some radio play if marketed to the right audiences.
It's very nice and chill, which is what I generally associate with Ninja Tune artists. I'd go and see this live if it had some sick AV stuff going on with it. It needs to be something v grand for the live performance but it would elevate it so much. WLTM in LA.
It sounds like a metalcore version of 30STM. I imagine you will take that as a compliment. It's super generic so could do pretty well if well marketed.
Reminds me a lot of old Incubus, which isn't a bad thing. This is a decent track. I'd be interested in hearing more.
This is some really great rock 'n' roll. It does sound like a female Danko Jones! At 3mins, it's a great length.
This is technically very, very accomplished - the riffs work really well. Good musicianship and the vocals are pretty good. The visuals fit in with this style of metal and I dig it. I'd come watch you if you get to LA.
