What a song! It reminds me  of Coldplay a bit. Production values are spot in and it is a well thought out and executed track. I could totally see this track being featured in a film as a background track.

Another good one. I'm looking forward to the rest of the album. 

Remember that the biggest challenge now is to rise above the noise. You've got plenty of time to sort out a social media strategy. Turn fans into evangelists. Give your sound and image, I'm guessing that Facebook would be your best bet. It tends to skew a little older. And YouTube, of course--even if it's just a lyric video. 

Spotify is not the enemy, either. The goal is for your music to grow organically on the platform. Become educated on how streaming can benefit you. 

I also like the idea of releasing one song at a time. It's the drip-drip-drip approach that so many hip-hop artists use so well. Once you start establishing a fanbase, you need to keep top of mind with them. That means constantly engaging them with something new. 

Good luck. And keep in touch.
Are you plans to get a major label deal? Synch and licensing? Performance? Radio play?

Immaculate! Great story, amazing arrangement and insane use of timbre and intonation to put emphasis in just the right spots.

Hi Vian - really impressive track.  I'm going to dive in a little more further into your work.  Appreciate getting submissions that are real pieces of music.  One piece of advice.  I was a little confused by the title of the Soundcloud i.e. is this a Coldplay cover, or I'm seeing three artist names in the lines and took a moment to decipher what was what.  I suppose it's a good "sales" thing to put in Coldplay's arranger.  I don't think Spotify will allow you to release it like that though.  I think personally you'll do just fine with putting in there with your name - even with or without a feature.  I really enjoyed the piece but for what I'm doing it might be just a little more on the singer/songwriter/orchestral side whereby I'm looking usually more for beat driven indie pop.  But listened twice!  Great work and think you should get some good attention  on this.

This is insanely pretty! Beyond perfect for anyone who likes Coldplay. Let me have a look at the EPK and I'll pass it around my radio people. Great work!
