This sounds like it would kick ass live! Some seriously big riffs and there is a whole world of attitude in the vocals here. Where you havea chunky slice of punk rock like you do here, it's important to make sure that the whole live experience is embodied into most if not all aspects of the project, so I have two main points of critique in this vain. Firstly, you are going to develop your fan base by playing as many shows as possible. So in lieu of picking up a booking agent who can work you onto the best billings and tours in this way, try reaching out to as many promoters of the larger bands you want to support as possible and just floating this with them. Secondly, get a producer who can really make these tracks flourish - the tracking for these two songs is good enough for soliciting demos to other people, but the mixing could definitely use a punch especially to explore the guitar and rhythm sections further, as well as making the vocal sit on top of the music a bit more as it currently feels it sits within the track just a tad as things stand. Check out a band from Texas called Purple, and hopefully that should provide an idea of what I'm blathering on about. Otherwise, sounding really good. Please do keep in touch.
I really dig this track! You nailed that raw, punky sound without going over the top. Gritty, not shitty as I like to say. The song is well written, managing to adhere to familiar garage/punk traits while still sounding fresh. I think the vocals sound a little thin in the mix, but that is really my only complaint and it's a small one. Good job!
As far as garage-punk is concerned, this is likely one of the best produced new tracks I've heard for a while. Tracking instruments in the rock genres isn't easiest at the best of times, but you've successfully managed to absorb the live energy and put it into an articulate recording. Consider sending this to tastemaker blogs generally as well as some radio outlets such as 6Music, Radio 1, Amazing Radio and XFM as well as as many regional stations in Reading as possible. Would love to see this live so please do get in touch when you are starting to do shows!
