Both video and the song go well together, the atmosphere that they create is really cool. I was a little bit disappointed that what seemed to be an introduction to the track lasted for that long, and I caught myself waiting for the beat to finally drop. But everything from around 2:00 on was really great. And maybe there is a little too much effects put on the vocals.

SHE by THE LANDED

Olga Knapinska

Wow. What a nice vibe! This tune reminds me of all the rock-ish bands that I used to listen at the beginning of ‘00s, it’s a nice throwback to hear such similar sounds. But it still has that more modern approach, which I like. I wouldn’t agree that it is a great song for a single from the album, but would be just fine as a regular tune. I would definitely work on making some parts of the song stand out more, instead of choosing the same path all the way through the composition. I know there’s that lovely instrumental part with cool guitars, but vocal sounds a bit too plain to make that part intriguing. But I like how it came out! I would definitely listen to it on the radio in my car.

I like it. I can hear that you still need some time to get to the point where you’ll be 100% sure what kind of music you want to make, and maybe you’re young or have played together for a shorter bit of time, but I know that your music will be getting better and better with time. I like the fact that you already know how to transform the lyrical meaning into sound - when I first started listening to this song, two words came to my mind: “reggae” and “aliens”, and I thought of it before looking at this song’s title. Great job. And the mentioned reggae elements are giving this tune even more depth and making it a little more fun. I think this one has a lot of potential.

At the beginning I was a little skeptical about how this song goes with the music video, but half way through it all started to make sense and went out pretty cool. What I really like about this tune are definitely the vocals - I would recommend that the singer could try exploring his voice a little more, I feel like it could be a starting point for a lot of listeners to get interested in your work. It’s already pretty intriguing and engaging, but I know it could be even better. Other than that, I love the darker atmosphere that this tune gets me in.

This is definitely an interesting approach to making music. I’d say some people would find it difficult to say if it’s really bad or just amazing, because the line between bad music and musical intelligence is sometimes extremely thing. However, even if this tune was created without thinking of its artistic value (maybe not, I don’t know), I see a lot of elements of modern art in it and... to be honest, if I was a visual artist with exhibition in a modern art museum, I’d 100% choose this as the soundtrack to my art. Not for everyone, but definitely intriguing.

THE S.T.R.U.G.G.L.E.(Demo) by AfriCali Genre

Olga Knapinska

The vintage feel and elements of psychedelic music are definitely what I love the most about this song! Hearing this tune's African roots, I can honestly say that it's definitely an unique approach to any kind of genre. Even though I probably wouldn't see myself listening to this kind of sound, I am really glad that I had a chance to hear this piece.  There are basically no weak elements there, and the vocals are spectacular. And I'm sure I would have tons of fun hearing this live at a festival!

Passing, Passing by Noah Engel

Olga Knapinska

Wow! It's really intriguing, peaceful, interesting, maybe a little bit bizarre but extremely good. I loved the lyrics, which are probably the beautiful reflection of your poetic side, I also loved the feeling that "Passing, Passing" left me with. I wanted more and I still do, the dramatic element in this tune was beautiful. Didn't left me speechless, but I think it's something that will happen sooner or later if you keep on creating and developing your musical-artistic self the way you had to develop yourself to make this song happen. I'm sharing it on my blog right now!

I can see that you (possibly) had a very strong vision of your work when you decided to write and record this tune. I like to think about it this way. Having in mind that the description says that it’s “an invocation, an introduction”, I can just imagine the great, more expressive things that could go after this track on the album. Maybe some clean guitars? I haven’t heard your music in the past but I’d just love to think that these next songs have the harder, powerful notes in the background, or at least the very catchy and addictive vibe. With great and intriguing vocals, obviously.

P.S. I just listened to some parts of the record, wow! It’s almost exactly what I expected it to be after hearing “Sun Arise”. Definitely checking it out later.

Moving In Circles by Dolly Spectra

Olga Knapinska

I got really interested and curious right after seeing that lovely colorful picture from SoundCloud’s link. I expected something extraordinary, and I got it. I also expected something mysterious or magical, which was there in a very weird but pleasant way, and after hearing “Moving In Circles” I am more than ready to hear more tunes of yours. This is that kind of stuff that nobody can pass by indifferently. Love it or hate it - I just want more. And I can just imagine a delightful, eye-catching, spectacular music video that could be created for this song! Art for art’s sake!

Taking You Out by The Landed

Olga Knapinska

I fell in love with this track instantly - was that the beautiful guitar opening? Probably. I like how the vocals don't sound that delicate, but still remain authentic and give a great tempo to the overall sound of the song. I wish this was a longer tune, because it was so lovely that 3 and a half minutes weren't enough. There's that amazing peace in your music, which, surprisingly for me, I find so attractive! Of course you could polish this and that, add some twists, try to sound even more coherent, but who really sees all these details if a band has their unique style. So don't be afraid to forget about the rules of songwriting and producing, make up your own ones, mix genres and styles, I think you have potential to do that - and not everyone has it!

I like imagining things. Normally, this kind/genre of music that this tune belongs to would be represented in my mind as unpredictable, irregular dots of sound on a piece of paper; but "Into Existence" goes from being interesting, mysterious, to being just good and proper, maybe a little bit boring. I'd try to avoid this in the future. Try to turn the syntax of the tunes over instead, start with something clean and beautiful and go wild in the middle, just to make the end of the tune captivating. Go harder with the ambient concept of your sound! I'd love to hear the results!

Waiting For Serendipity by Peter Daniel Newman

Olga Knapinska

I like the lyric video. Maybe that's just Prince's legacy, but the color purple always gets me in a good mood. I also feel like it makes a perfect match with the song - which delights with the melody line and its message, but disappoints a little bit with the vocals. I'm not saying that the vocalist's voice is bad, because even the bad voice can be fitted in a well produced song just perfectly, it's just that is doesn't make a "perfect" whole with the song and disappears when more powerful notes come in. But this of course can be changed, and it should be, because the composition itself and the overall feeling of this tune is really unique.

Endlessly by Social Station

Olga Knapinska

The beginning of this track seemed really weird to me at first. But then I started to actually enjoy this atmosphere of terror that "Endlessly" has put me into, and its Adams family-alike creepy feeling. You guys have some uniqueness in your style, that's for sure, and even if you'd be a group that can be either loved or hated - uniqueness is always a plus. However, you should try to make your tunes more melodic, and coordinate the vocals with that melody line, and maybe add even more drama to the beat with some catchy, lively guitar lines.

Your World by Los Waves

Olga Knapinska

I love it! I think it would be a really cool tune for a sunny, summery visual, because what you guys have and what I find brilliant is that California/Australian vibe, and when you combine it with your European style and taste - I think you could make some top songs without even trying too hard. I'd love to hear this tune live, it would be a perfect song for a festival or any other gig, I'd love to be in the crowd when you play it live! I haven't heard you other songs of yours but if they sound similar to "Your World", you should put more "psychedelic" and less "indie" in them in the future, because what I feel like is the most psychedelic at the moment are your looks (handsome looks to be completely honest!). Great job with the track!

Ayn Rand's Grand Plan by THE WITCH AND THE ROBOT

Olga Knapinska

One thing that stands out not so positively (at least in the first part of the track) are the vocals, which have also the good moments of course. I like the energy, the vibe, the idea - and I'd definitely prefer to hear it live rather than while sitting at home. I definitely love the ending, I feel like the melody line that you created there feels really unusual and cool!

Olga Knapinska

It takes a lot of courage to release a remix of such a fascinating track. But this version of 2Pac's "Dear Mama" feels really fresh, it's like experiencing the same feelings again, but in a different way, which in my opinion is brilliant. The remix sounds somehow extremely optimistic, yet still serious, and I love it.

Dreamer by Umiaq

Olga Knapinska

If this is how a "dreamer" should sound like, I want everyone to dream more. Even though I feel like this tune was way too short and I would definitely like to explore that magical world of yours for hours, it's a perfect length to get into this mysterious world and feel its unusual atmosphere. It definitely made me extremely curious, interested, maybe even fascinated. I'd love to see this as an opening/closing track for a little bit more lively record!

Speakeasy by The Hollow Threads

Olga Knapinska

I would definitely like to see this track as a part of a movie soundtrack, maybe in a movie trailer or something. Its unusual atmosphere could be perfect for an alternative visual. It's a really interesting tune, and I'd love to hear the full project (I'm gonna go through your Soundcloud right now!). Perfect meditation/relaxing sounds for me.

I am sooo in love with your image in this video. It's eye-catching, the song is really smooth, and I feel like although it's also a delicate tune, it's full of little surprises that kept me interested from the very first until the last note basically. And it gave me that awesome winter feeling that I miss so much this summer!

Breach by QVALIA

Olga Knapinska

This is a really nice track. At the beginning it reminded me of some kind of mixture between Owl City's sound and... 30stm's emotional way of creating music. I think "Breach" would make a great radio tune, I can easily imagine myself listening to this while in traffic, when music should heal the tension ;) And it's a really positive song, which I find brilliant! I would love to hear it live!

Pretty Boy by The Persian Leaps

Olga Knapinska

Nice sound! It's definitely a catchy one, and having in mind its genre I think there are no weak moments in this song. Both melody and vocals are fine and have that lovely vintage vibe to them, which I find amazing. The only thing is that the ending could be a little bit more exciting or unusual, but it may be just a matter of taste. However, I think it would make a great live number! And I'm sharing this with my readers just now! 

Paul Hale submitted media.

Olga Knapinska

Wow! I didn't expect THAT! Just when I wanted to click on "not for me" button, the song started getting better and better, and better... And I totally love it! The coherency between the melody and the vocal is beautiful, and I feel like instrumental parts are so well polished that it couldn't be any better. The video itself is not that stunning, but proper, and I definitely don't care about any imperfections when the tune is so extraordinary. I'm going to go now and listen to "Things To Talk About" couple more times! Thank you for creating this!

The Canyons by Pilotpriest

Olga Knapinska

I love the fact that the tune is not disturbing, and that its sound is really versatile. I would definitely choose it as a soundtrack for a rainy day, peaceful evening, or a morning before work. It reminded me of the beautiful times when I was completely obsessed with groups like Kraftwerk and their amazing sounds, which is an amazing thing! Thank you for that! I also loved the idea of putting the visuals on the retro TV screen, it gives that special little touch which is absolutely phenomenal.

Daylight Paranoia by Sounds of Sirus

Olga Knapinska

Brilliant track! The first and main thing that I noticed is how amazingly powerful the vocal is! You got one spectacular lead singer there! The melody goes just perfectly with the timbre of his voice, and to be completely honest I wouldn't change a single thing about this song. I'm sharing this tune with my readers right now!

Polythene Sky by Whtsqr

Olga Knapinska

At the beginning, when the song just started, I thought that it will be another good, proper, but a little bit boring piece. Now, after listening to the full track couple times I have to tell you how wrong I was! "Polythene Sky" is truly engaging, which doesn't often happen to me when it comes to all these settled down, peaceful songs. The only thing that I would change is the coherence between the melody line and vocals. Cool visuals btw! Thanks for sharing this track with me!

Thomas McGenniss-Destro submitted media.

Olga Knapinska

I am no expert when it comes to any type of electronic music and it is definitely not my thing, but seriously, this remix makes me wanna reconsider my music taste (which is a big compliment for this track). It's really coherent, smooth, delicate, and the vibes are just so good.

Roots by Carriages

Olga Knapinska

Wow! One of the best ones that I've heard here on Fluence so far. I listened to this couple of days ago and completely fell in love with the overall idea of the song. The only thing is that the vocals could be a little bit more coherent with the melody line, but besides that I think it's pretty epic! 

Paul Todd submitted media.

Olga Knapinska

I think it's a really interesting track. I quite like the lyrics and the general idea. There are definitely some ear-catching moments when the melody stands out perfectly. However, to make it even better I'd try to make some parts more varied, maybe a little more lively or dramatic. Also I feel like the vocals should be better coordinated with the overall sound.

Stand/still by Cold, cold heart

Olga Knapinska

I feel like instrumental music can be either brilliant or terrible. Moving or boring. This one is definitely brilliant, moving, smooth, and beautiful. I would love to listen to this tune everywhere I go, because it has that amazing, calming effect, perfect for the moments of reflection or meditation. I'm definitely checking out your music after this fantastic experience!

Did We Dance The Night by Skinny Bitches

Olga Knapinska

Nice one. I find the vocals really interesting, the melody line is good, also that Fleetwood Mac influence is what I can clearly hear and what I love in "Did We Dance The Night"! However, some parts of the track may sound a little bit too harsh and/or aggressive, obscuring the delicate vocal, I'd also work on making the overall sound more smooth - but it doesn't change the fact that I like this tune just as it is right now!
