Weird by The Why -

Bob Lugowe

Interesting choice of album art for this track haha but I did enjoy the song. It's a laid back, moody song with psychedelic flourishes, a strong hook and solid musicianship all around. You def have good songwriting skills and a unique enough sound. Nice work! 

In terms of promo advice, I would start by suggesting you include a brief bio about the band and a link to hear more music as this is your chance to get in front of the right people so you want to make it as easy as possible for them to learn more about your band. You should also have your band name in the title of your youtube video to help people find it online. 

If you're not already, be sure to use all of the available and FREE artist tools across the DSPs like Spotify for Artists, Apple Music for Artists, Amazon for Artists and Bandcamp's artist platform as these will provide great insight into your fanbase, how your music is performing and allow you to optimize your profiles and pitch for inclusion on playlists in certain instances. Also, I can't stress enough how imporant Bandcamp is for indie artists so make sure you build a presence there and put your music on there. I would suggest setting it up as a pay-what-you-want download to try to build some fans from the get-go. The other most important platforms for unsigned artists to focus on are YouTube and Soundcloud so be sure to build a presence there too. 

If you're looking for more promotion and building a fanbase you should consider hiring a publicist or a specialized music marketing firm that you feel you can trust and is a fan of your music to help with the release of your next single and/or album to help you get visibility on blogs, playlisting, print media, etc. If you're not already on a label, consider trying to get signed to one as they can help you with the promo and playlist pitching. Lastly, make sure you have a strong social media presence and that you're on all the right platforms (instagram, tik tok, twitter, Triller, etc) with a unique aesthetic as this will help you draw in listeners and hopefully stand out amongst a sea of performers. Having strong visual content and music videos can def help get your music out there more than just releasing it without any promotional effort. 

Best of luck!

Enjoyable, rockin' blues with excellent playing throughout. I also enjoyed the use of the keyboards and reverb effects on the vocals plus the harmonica playing was top notch.

This type of music is also perfect in the live environment so make sure you're playing as many live shows as you can to build a local fanbase and try to get on shows with bigger touring bands coming through your area to expand your audience.

Dark, ominous beat that perfectly complements your vocal style. It sounds like something you would hear in a basement club in the late night hours on copious amounts of drugs and I mean that in the best way possible haha. Nice work.

Great song title / lyrics, compelling backstory and driving beat / fuzzed out guitars throughout the track. I wasn't crazy about the vocals but did appreciate the edge and rawness they gave to the song.

Cool artwork, love the layered guitar work, atmospheric touches and tone that you've captured. I'm not crazy about the vocals but it's a solid song with a lot of talent on display. Nice work. 

A gorgeous video that matches beautifully with the music. I could watch this on repeat and it makes me want to hear more of your compositions so nice work. The composition is a unique take on modern classical with lots of flow and movement like the river it is in tribute to.

Def an apt description for the song as I hear lots of 70s psychedelia in the sound including a bit of modern bands (Tame Impala, Kurt Vile, War on Drugs, etc.). I appreciate the video effort but it doesn't really add too much to the song which I think would be stronger on its own. It's a well-written song with a decent hook, vintage production and a message everyone can relate to so nice work.

Eccentric, experimental art-pop with an oddly charming and original sound and visual throughout. Nice work, you definitely have talent and ambition and seem to be developing your own voice.

Cold Nights by Swigga Geovanni

Bob Lugowe

Cool song with good production though it doesn't sound too different than most mainstream radio tracks and relys a bit too heavily on auto-tune. You've def got talent but perhaps try to set yourself apart from most of the artists of today by developing your sound a bit further.

Nice, dreamy tune with lots of layer and atmosphere. The pink flamingo in the pool is a nice contrast to the somewhat melancholy aspect of the song, nice work.

Well-written, modern-sounding pop song with a professional looking video. Not really something I would listen to but it's well done and looks like you had a fun time making it. 
 
In terms of promotional advice, I would start by suggesting that you include a description of the song and bio about the artist along with links to hear more music online and your social media in your Fluence submission. This is your elevator pitch in front of the right people so you want to make it as easy as possible for listeners to get the full picture of who you are and what you're about along with an easy way to find more of your music if they're interested. You should also make sure you have links to official sites and streaming profiles in your youtube description, ideally at least one above the fold so fans can click on a link without having to go to the "view more" section under the video. Your video has over 20k views so that's lots of potential clicks you're missing out on by not including links.

All sounds like music I would want to listen and relax to though it's hard to get a sense of the full scope of your talent and capabilities with these short clips and it's a bit distracting hearing them bounce from one to the next right when i'm trying to start to get into one. I would suggest submitting one full song or clips of two songs next time instead as no industry professional is going to be interested in an act based on 15 second clips.  The message is great and good for you on finally getting ready to release your music to the world. I think it would be cool if you released these full songs on youtube with the clips of nature to accompany them and make sure to release them to all DSPs too via a service like Tunecore or CD Baby unless you're hoping to get signed.

On Bandcamp, consider making the album free or pay-what-you-want instead of putting a price on it as people aren't likely going to pay $ for an album from an unknown artist and you'll potentially reach more people by releasing your music for free. Perhaps you can donate the proceeds to COVID relief which would encourage people to download and give you more $. 

If you're looking for more promotion and building a fanbase you should consider hiring a publicist or a marketing firm that you feel you can trust and is a fan of your music to help with the release of your next single and/or album to help you get visibility on blogs, playlisting, print media, etc.

Cool song, track name, project name and artwork, makes me want to get stoned and fly to outer space. I imagine this sounds even better with headphones but the production fits your own unique sound. I dug when the heavier drums came in around the 2:30 mark. The vocals while fitting for the song sound a bit robotic and I'm not sure I could listen to an entire album with that effect in place but that's just me personally. This is a song that would def do well to have a music video or some sort of visual accompaniment.

Super trippy video that I wish I watched while under the influence. It definitely fits your sound and adds to the appeal of the track. It's an interesting blend of genres that is hard to pin down with hints of alternative r&b, soul, psychedelia, rock and indie. The production sounds very organic and like it was recorded live which is cool as I imagine this music translates well in the live environment.

Upbeat, chill song with a laid back groove and good artwork to match. Reminds me of strolling around a beautiful city in the summer (pre-pandemic of course haha).

Huge sounding, emotive pop song with great production, catchy hook and poignant lyrics. nice work!  

In terms of promotion, I would start by suggesting that you work with a professional photographer and creative team to help develop your image. This is pop music you're making and the music sounds great but looking at your socials and website looks more like an artist just starting out and doesn't match the music. Pop music is about escape and goes hand in hand with image and aesthetic and I think if you really want to get noticed you need to create your own unique style and run with it.

Simple, yet really enjoyable and well-written song with solid hooks, great tone / guitar crunch and a fun music video to accompany it. This reminds me of good mix of punk / noise rock from the 90s and I would def listen to more.

Well-written song that sounds like it could have been on the radio in the 90s. I dig the energy, the komodo and the mix of styles in the song. The music video left some to be desired as it's pretty low-budget and doesn't really add much to the song except for watching the band perform in their practice space. Definitely a lot of talent on display here though.

Solid, hard-rocking jam that definitely made me nostalgic for the glory days of GnR, Motley Crue, etc. The artwork and logo are fantastic too and represent this sound very well. Nice job.

Good, poppy track with an infectious beat and Top 40 sound throughout. This sounds a lot like what is popular right now but it's well done and I would listen to more. The video is shot well but doesn't really add anything to the song and looks like more of a low budget video I've seen 1000 times.

When it comes to your online presence, I would consider giving it a makeover as your instagram for example has so many one-sided promotional posts without that much engagement or followers and your website looks a bit amateur. Image is very important for pop music and you want to look like you're already on top, not struggling to make it, if you're trying to impress fans, media, and industry folk. Consider going for simplicity and a common aesthetic across all of your platforms instead of just throwing as much out there as possible and seeing what sticks.
