Hi all, sorry to put this in this forum but i think ive got more chance of gettin blood out of a brick than i have getting critique from the promote your band forum.

Anyway, our band has a new song up called "forever and a day". It think its the best song ive done to date so please have a listen to us and let me know what you think.

C4C. Thanks, Simon.

Can't get a crit in promote your band, go to R&R, can't get one there, then tough shit. There's subsections for a reason.

You sound more like a general rock band in the vein of Oasis than an 'Indie Rock' band, and the jangly lead line sounds like U2. If it were me I'd have the vocals lower in the mix. What distortion are you using? It's too much, you need an overdrive or something. And bring everything in the mix bar drums and vocals up slightly during the lead line, it's meant to lead the song, but not leave everything else in the dust.

well its definately boring enough to be good indie. songs very generic, you are playing 90's britpop rather than stuff more 'inventive' like the artic monkeys dare i say it.

vocals slightly weak but the 2 dark haired laddies (take it that includes yourself)have the right image so that could take them far. The other lads are ugly swines!.

Oh and the band name is shiet.

You stupid stupid arsehole.

And this isn't indie, neither are the Arctic Monkeys, it's pop-rock.

Mate, sorry to be a ****, but this needs to go in Original R&R. If you want it to get listened to then you have to give a half decent critique on other peoples recordings and give a link to your own in the post. This is a community so unless everyone gives as well as receives then the whole place'd fall apart.

*reported for being in the wrong forum*

If you put it in Original R&R then I'll definately give it a listen and tell you what I think!
