Hi..please send me an e-mail to email@example.com with the private SC link so I can share with my counterpart at The Revue. I can't promise anything as we need to have a collective yes, but I can try. Thanks!
The track is very nice, I hear some jazz influences in there and a laid back 60s vibe as well. Good vocals and lyrics as well. I will check out some of your other English tracks. Feel free to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for upcoming English tracks, we might be able to share on The Revue. Thanks!
I really like the eclectic blues feel you have going here, and I believe you have sent something previously - I really like this one. Shoot me a message or e-mail as to what is going on with you or a bio/background. I would be happy to share this track. Thanks! email@example.com
I really like the combination of beats/keys and overall sound on this track. I'm always looking for really great instrumental tracks even if they include a small amount of sampling/vocals. This one can definitely be added to my list, I just wish I spoke French :) Nice work, would be interested to hear more if you end up with an EP release in the future. Thanks for sharing!
I really like this - simple but interesting and intrigued to hear more. I also cannot make comparisons which is good because I'm always looking for new and different. The lyrics are perfect for someone like myself who is a reformed people pleaser ha - great anthem for being yourself ;) Message me or e-mail a quick bio and I will be happy to post this video next week. firstname.lastname@example.org
It's kinda bluesy with a bit of an old school almost big band feel which is cool! I like the vocals and the bassline is pretty sweet, too. I would be interested to hear more from the upcoming EP. This definitely doesn't sound like everything else out there right now, which I like.
I am not a huge EDM fan nor expert in that arena, but I do like the mix of the rock element in this track. I get a little bit of an NIN feel in parts almost which is great ;) I am a big fan of instrumental tracks in general so thanks for sending this. I actually just did a post this past week highlighting some of my favorite instrumental and this easily could have been added to the list. Keep me in mind for future releases (message me here or email email@example.com) and send any new tracks my way, I always love sharing newly released tracks. Thanks!
This is some great rock right here and right up my alley. I would be happy to share this track, and if the band would be up for a Q&A, let me know where to send some questions so we can try and get something up next week. Thanks for sharing!
Wow, pleasantly surprised. Great voice, simple arrangement and really lovely songwriting. I would definitely like to hear more. I will check out the link for the EP. Thanks so much for sharing, you definitely have something here. You should definitely submit your stuff to Sofar Sounds to get more exposure, too.
I really enjoyed this track! I love instrumental and i would really like to hear the upcoming EP. I am actually formulating a post (that has taken me longer than I would like ha) about some of the really good instrumental tracks/bands I have come across over the past few months. Please e-mail or message me a quick bio about the band so I can include this track. Thanks for sharing!
Um..love Phosphorescent!!!!!! Is this a promoter? I would love to post up a Q&A w/the band if possible. This album was one of my favs from 2013. message me on here or e-mail if that's possible. firstname.lastname@example.org
I really dig this sound - please send me a bio or more info, I would be happy to share. Also, if there is an upcoming EP. Vocals are very memorable and I really like the overall tone/sound of this track. email@example.com. Thanks for sharing!
The beginning almost reminds me of a classic rock feel. The vocals are memorable. I would like to hear more, it's hard to get a feel from what you are all about as a band from this one track. If you have more or an upcoming EP, send my way. firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for sharing.
This almost has a Cure type vibe - maybe it's the vocals. It would be interesting to hear more, or a background or bio about you in terms of your sound. Feel free to e-mail me. email@example.com Thanks for sharing!
This is a lovely track - I have nothing to say but this song is great and totally my style. Some people don't but I love a polished track with a great chorus. If you guys would be up for a Q&A, shoot me an e-mail and any info regarding the upcoming EP. Thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
Nice vocals and catchy chorus, I like the guitar as well. I almost feel you don't need as much backing vocals on this track that you have as the main vocals are strong enough but it is still good. If you have other songs or an upcoming EP, I would be interested in hearing more. Thanks for sharing!
I'm not a super huge fan of too much reverb or echo in the vocals on songs but with the atmospheric vibe here, I don't mind too much. I still feel it doesn't have to be as prominent but that's just my opinion. I really like the psych feel and guitar here but for some reason the percussion feels a bit flat to me but overall it's good. Would be interested to hear more along these lines or if there is a new EP out. Thanks for sharing.
Very trippy video and very nicely produced track - I almost want it to be longer! If there is an upcoming EP, or most songs along these lines, I would like to hear it. Thanks for sharing, I really dig what you are doing with this I have no critiques aside from the length ha! shoot me an e-mail if you have some bio/info that I can possibly do a write up email@example.com
If this were house or electronic only I wouldn't be as intrigued but with the addition of the guitar this song holds my attention. I like the different elements that are pulled together for this track, it would be interesting to see some collabs with vocalists vs. just sampling. Overall, I like the creative direction.
Unfortunately I am not a big house/electronic fan so I do not have a lot of constructive criticism to give here or what I feel would make it better. I can easily see this song being added to my instrumental playlist I listen to while train riding to and from work, the chill vibe and easy flow is nice and calming. Thanks for sharing!
I really like the male/female vocals on this track and the progression after the 1:20 point. The lyrics are really good too and something I can definitely relate to. The addition of strings on this song is also a nice touch. Thanks for sharing!
The guitar work on this track is nice and shoegaze-y. The vocals could almost be a little more prominent but are still nice. I like the mix of beats/guitar and would like to hear more if there is a forth coming EP. The progression at 2:38 is really great as well. Nice track overall. Thanks for sharing!
I love how this starts in the beginning and then builds into something different. For me, I feel like it is about the ups and downs of a new relationship and gaining the confidence to begin one in the first place (which explains the difference in sounds within the song). It connects with me emotionally as well as audibly so I dig it. I don't believe I would change anything. I would be happy to share this - email me if you have others or an upcoming EP that I can post about. firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm very curious now about you as an artist. This track was chill, vocals are nice and some submissions I have received you can tell the production is made in someone's bedroom, etc. The construction of this song sounds very well done. My only critique is it could have ended around a minute earlier. I would be interested to hear what else you are creating. So far, so good! feel free to e-mail email@example.com
This is ace. I really, really love instrumental artists and tracks and I feel they don't get much recognition. Please send me some info on this album. I have been wanting to do a combined instrumental post for a while because I have actually found quite a few newer and really great sounding instrumental artists that I feel need to be shared. Hearing this track solidifies that I need to write it! firstname.lastname@example.org
Lyrics and vocals are nice, for me I feel there are a lot of bands/artists that sound similar. I would be interested in hearing other tracks to see if there are elements that might set you apart a bit from all the other artists attempting to emulate Coldplay, etc. The vocal mixing sounds a little off, too which could probably be fixed if self producing. You do have talent here, I just wish it was a little more unique or stood out a little more for me. Thanks for sharing.
I usually enjoy the psych rock sound, but personally just a little bit too much reverb for me in the vocals. Unique enough voice (reminds me of Foxygen a bit) I don't feel it needs to be altered very much. I also feel the ending of the song is a little abrupt. I do feel there is something here, if it can just be tweaked a bit. Thanks for sharing!
I really do like all of the musical elements that make this full sound. It's got a lot of different bits and pieces going on that doesn't make it sound like everything else out there right now. The vocals I was surprised with the lower tone that goes with some of the airy/poppy parts of the song but that is not a bad thing, the vocals do stand out as well. I would like to hear an EP if you have one upcoming email@example.com. Thanks for sharing!
This definitely has appeal right now in the rock world with the psych vibe going on and chill vocals, All of the elements work together nicely. I would like to hear more if there is an upcoming EP. Thanks for sharing! firstname.lastname@example.org
This is really good stuff..solid track. Every element works very well together. I will definitely have a listen to the EP. I am also thinking of doing a combined post with some really note worthy instrumental tracks/bands I have listened to lately, and this is worth sharing. Shoot me an e-mail - email@example.com
I do like the overall sound, I'm getting a bit of a 90's vibe in parts. The video is interesting as well (holds my attention for sure). My only critique is I feel the vocals are kind of in the background (could be more prominent personally) Not sure if that is a production, mixing or intentional. Overall good job. If there is an EP out, I would like to hear more. Thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
The chorus is addicting and I can't really pin this group as any particular genre. So many elements are present here in this one song, , it's a good mix and shows diversity. The video is nice but of course I would like to see them in a live setting to showcase each band member's talent. I would be interested in hearing more if there is an upcoming debut. Thanks for sharing! email@example.com
I'm really enjoying the different elements here. Fun little video and even though it's almost 4 minutes it holds my attention. The strings bring in the folk vibe but the chorus is poppy and memorable so it's a great eclectic mix. I would really like to hear more from the upcoming EP. If you have other singles shoot me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for sharing!
I really like. It's dreamy pop with a little gaze mixed in. The vocals are nice since I can hear the lyrics. Really good overall sound. I would like to hear more if there is an upcoming EP shoot me an e-mail. email@example.com
There is no doubt this has a formula for top 40 success. Especially if the band members are cute ha. Nice vocals and beats, I just wish it had a little more rock in it. I don't mind synth at all but I prefer more of a balance between the guitars and beats. The most rock I hear is at 2:00 and at the very end. If there are other tracks from the upcoming album with a little more guitar in there, send my way. Unfortunately for me this sounds like a lot of what is already out there right now. It can also be hard to tell on a recording as Strange Talk has a bunch of synth in their songs but their live show is killer. Feel free to e-mail me if you want to send anything else. Thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
