That was fun! I like how the video starts by hinting at a story. The singer has a lot of charisma and character, which serves to hold my interest throughout.

In fact, I thought the singer was just an actress or friend of the band until her vocal came in. I was expected a growly dude, so good on you for defying expectations!

That said, I'm not convinced the Disney-esque pure vocal tone complements the music, which has a boomy room quality that makes it sound like it was recorded in a garage and not a proper studio.

The "nah nah" stuff reminds me of J. Geils. Definitely hooky.

All in all, I'm not sure what to make of this! It's certainly unique, but the video and recording aren't quite up to professional standards.

Regardless, it's not a fit for my Depeche-loving following. I'm not sure what your audience is to be honest! Have you tried ReverbNation Crowd Review or Drooble Reviews Marketplace? Maybe running the song through one or both could help you dial in your targeting.

A couple suggestions for future Fluence submissions:

1. Include the lyrics so we can follow along (I understood them just fine, but wasn't always focused on them)

2. Include a short, catchy description of the song or act that's easy to copy/paste for social media sharing. That way we don't have to strain our brain coming up with something clever, and you get to choose how you're presented to the world.
