We are a Sydney band formed in early 2012 at Bondi Music School. We are a young group who enjoy listening to many different music genres (Classic Rock, Grunge, Pop, New Wave, Alternative Punk), and so our music is a surprisingly comfortable blend of our many different tastes.

I don't know why, but this didn't sound as professionally mastered as "Runaway". Could just be my ears being tired after a long day of producing, but nevertheless I've decided to review this song as well. Lachie's vocals, for whatever reason, actually sound much wider (read: better) in a stereo-imaging sense. Which is good. I'm sorry but the main guitar line i...
I don't know why, but this didn't sound as professionally mastered as "Runaway". Could just be my ears being tired after a long day of producing, but nevertheless I've decided to review this song as well. Lachie's vocals, for whatever reason, actually sound much wider (read: better) in a stereo-imaging sense. Which is good. I'm sorry but the main guitar line is WAY too soft, the piano and drums just overpower it. MISSING LOADS OF SUB BASS. I mean, there isn't any! This is probably a stylistic choice though ;) . I'm mixed and mastered plenty of tracks, and I reckon i'm seeing a pattern here with the band. Your tracks are top of the range, in terms of 'Indie' bands, but it lacks some crucial detail in order to make it to that next level. Here's what I mean: -Pro-sounding quality: Sophisticated song structure, professional mixing, full mastered, full frequency spectrum, could be played with songs by the greats without a noticeable difference. -2nd highest level *(The point you are at)*: Detailed, thorough song structure, near studio-level mixing/ mastering, experienced instrumentalists, serious chance of improving -3rd Highest level: Good song structure, very fluent, very good mixing/mastering -3rd Lowest level: Good song structure, fluency, general competency of instrument playing, some mixing and mastering -2nd Lowest level: Basic song structure, reasonable fluency, but no/bad mixing, no/bad mastering -Lowest level: Non-existent song structure, lacking flow Even though you are doing well, the last step to the pro level is the biggest one. It'll take years, but it's certainly achievable for a band this talent *insert product placement* I could actually mix some stuff for you in the future, if you'd like to see what I'm talking about. I'm kinda pressed for time, so, that's all for now. 4/5 'cause I'm feeling generous ;) bye
