It sounds good, we really love it, what a great song. Songs like yours make us believe and continue playing independent artists :) Hugs from Brazil.”


“Nice vibe going on here, good old guitar work. Some nice riffs and melodies and the guitars are spread nice and wide. Vocal style suits the track well, and all the bits and pieces are in the right place.”

“We love the rich and feeling vocals…keep up the good work!”

“This one had a real energy about it and of course, for us, the vocals are what stood out the most. However, you've really created a vibrant and energetic track too. Keep it up!”

“Really nice track! Love the rhythm and energy. Very catchy and easy to listen to. We will share it on our social media. Looking forward to hearing more from you!”

“I love the vibes and energy on this track! We are going to post this on the blog as soon as we can! Thanks a lot for this! Keep it going!”


“I like the combination of melody and grit on this track. There’s a dark vibe in the verse that’s driven by the guitar scale, shifting to a more upbeat feel in the chorus. The bass line is great and provides a solid groove that underpins the rest of the instrumental.”


“Hi guys, thanks for sharing your music! The leading riff of this track is brilliant, simple but addictive, and there's a certain humility to the vocal lead that reminds me of some of the indie rock legends of the early noughties. Your style is great, the songwriting really interesting, the performance impassioned and no doubt immense at a live show.”


Thanks for sending us your track. Sounds good, it´s cool. We are going to add it to the Spotify playlist called All Monkey Gone to Heaven, for our friends and followers to listen to for a month.


I appreciate the infectious energy and vibrant vibe of your song “don’t”. It's truly amazing to see how you guys can capture such an upbeat feeling and have it bounce off the speakers. The song has a captivating quality that immediately grabs the listener's attention. From the lively arrangements to the emotionally charged vocal delivery, each element seems to work in harmony to create an immersive and memorable listening experience. Plus, it's inspiring to see the musical path you've taken, from the days of playing with a cardboard guitar to becoming a recognized creative force in the music scene. The commitment and passion you have for music is evident, and this is clearly reflected in the quality of your art. You guys are undoubtedly talented and I'm excited to see what the future holds for the displayers!
