Great review at http://whitenoisemusicuk.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/ep-stereo-off-ep-ny5-stereo-off-january.html
“conveys the sound of the classic new wave style with retro, resilient guitar riffs.”
“the band have nurtured a balanced and distinctive sound that combines electro and indie-rock effortlessly”
Thanks to Isla and the team at White Noise UK, glad you liked the EP.
More to come soon.
Without getting too technical, and most of you on WordPress blogs can attest to this, but every time I login I see loads of new comments awaiting approval. Sadly its mostly salesy/spammy comments being submitted. Actually found a legit one in the pile from a little while ago and didn’t know what to do with it.
Anyway, still hibernating in the studio as we get ready for EP2 and back on the stage at a venue near you (Assuming you are near us). But in the mean time, some great new updates, such as this review from Indie News Now at http://indienewsnow.com/inn/stereo-off-giving-the-classics-a-new-life/- which gave us a 9/10 and reminded them “so much of David Byrne that it sends me right back to that era.” That was really cool to hear and thanks for reviewing us. Glad you liked the EP and hopefully you stay tuned in the coming months.
I was back and forth on using Twitter for the band, as its full of junk and bands auto-replying with messages. But if you dig through, there are some great ways to find new music and new blogs, sites, etc and connect with those looking for that new unsigned band that no one knows yet, as opposed to being “that band” who just pesters strangers.
As a result, we’ve started to get some nice mentions and places tweeting or referring us to their readers, whether from other zines/blogs like http://www.iamnotamusician.com/ or a random hotel in LA http://www.graftononsunset.com/west-la-hotels.htm – so wanted to start mentioning some of these too.
Being a new unsigned band (in New York, a city of thousands of unsigned indie bands!) trying to get some traction out there, “getting the word out” has been the goal while staying warm this winter. Hopefully more where that came from next week, as its been a few weeks in a row now. That and a confirmed gig date for the spring time, which I’m certainly ready for (springtime and next gig that is).
Aural Press – an independent blog based in the UK – http://auralpress.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/ep-review-stereo-off-ny-ep5-by-stereo-off/ gave our EP a great review this week. Much thanks to them. Check the overall blog out, its relatively new but starting to cover some good bands that you have and haven’t heard of.
More to come soon. Gotta start saving a copy of these things, as I know things don’t stay online forever (contrary to popular belief). We’re continuing to look at building coverage from the ground up via social media – so why not give this Twitter thing a look and follow us on https://twitter.com/stereooff for some band updates.
Gotta admit though, some of the Twitter stuff is odd. And what’s with all these bands doing auto-replies. Especially funny when the autoreply asks how did you find them, when they actually followed you first. Imagine that in real life.
Person 1: Um, good to meet you, how did you know about me?
Person 2: Well, you been walking behind me for a bit now.
