Updates and more EP reviews

Got a couple of great EP reviews recently, both from sites based just a quick drive up route 87 (ok maybe not that quick, and that’s another story) in Canada!

One from Replicant Ears – EP Review – that harkens the EP back to a mix of music from past decades and stating “This EP is definitely worth picking up, I’ve had it on repeat for days.” Thanks to Ryan and the team there at Replicant.

And then last week from 24OurMusic – “Stereo Off: Those Sexy Devils” – the title says enough surely…. And with a 9.8 out of 10 on the review also! –, much thanks to Patricia and everyone else over there.

It had me wondering, do we have that song that everyone mentions has their favourite? Or has it been an even split? So I looked at our review list and other mentions. And as of Late June 2014, due to reviews so far this year, the votes for favourite song per review went like this (note some reviews didn’t single one out, thus aren’t part of that count).

Photographs – 3
Bullet Time – 3
Effectual – 3
The Thrill – 3
MI6 – 3

Well, so much for seeing if reviews and feedback would help identify our top song from the EP. On a positive note, surely that means they are all keepers!

Weekend Update: Photos Ready, Video Edits, Reviews & Mentions

Its been a busy couple weeks for the band, we’ve finalised our photos and a couple of them are now on the site. We can also provide a full EPK on request. Here’s one for now.

And of course more to come on the FB page. In the meantime, the music video is ready!!!! – much thanks to everyone that helped us the past two weeks, everyone that stood in even when they had no idea what the scene would be about and just let someone say “ok, put on this make up”. Now all that needs to be done is some final editing and mixing and we’ll have it live soon.

In the meantime, here’s some more press, reviews and mentions about the band:

“SYFFAL” (Shut Your Fuckin Face And Listen) –
Joel “says STOP SLEEPING on Stereo Off”, thanks for the props and putting us top of that list!

“Who To Listen To” uses some of the press kit to put us as a featured artist at

Names of the sites seem to drop a hint overall….. thanks everyone, more to come soon.

Down By The River – Music Video Shoots, Reviews & More

Busy weekend for the band as we start finalizing the photo shoot takes from the previous weekend, in the meantime moving on to the music video shoots. The picture above is a hint. Its old school. Its black and white.

So the weekend update had to wait a couple days as we were out and about, but another week, and some more coverage. Newswhistle put together an awesome piece and interview with the band at A Great White With A Blindfold: What Unsigned Brooklyn Band Is Sharpening Its Teeth. Citing a mix of 80’s bands and recent NYC bands of much hype. Quote: “this band is moving fast towards golden indie shores”. Nice one. You can also find 3 of the Non-EP tracks on that article too.

And then moving back to the EP itself, a bonus review this week that nearly flew under my radar, from the Equal Ground.

“the most eclectic electronic sounds with the most down to earth rock tones and crashes them together to create an enthralling experience” & “This is cool! Seriously cool!”. Thanks to both sites for the coverage, reviews and interviews.

So not a bad weekend after all. Still plenty of work to do on the video though…. couple more sessions in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

Weekend Updates – Beside The Photo Shoot

Hey Everyone, just wanted to drop the usual updates. We had a great photo shoot on the weekend, looking forward to getting some high quality band photos in order to get the word out. Much thanks to Deneka Peniston and Brian Morris Gallery.

As for other updates, we have a triple header this weekend.

Awesome write up from The General at, tagged “fucking excellent” and mentioned Photographs as “a fantastic indie-pop slice of heaven” and Bullet Time as “the sort of track that really benefits from being blasted loudly and with the bass turned up“. Nice one! Just read the blog, because the general is always right.

Cheers also for the quick round up and a mention of the EP on Shout It Loud Reviews – which can be seen at

And to cap off the weekend. If you are in the UK, listen on Monday 7pm – 8pm for Stereo Off on Temporary Noise Radio at

More to come soon, thanks.

Rock Music Pick From Zambah Music App Site

Slightly belated update as the weekend was busier than expected, but still keeping the weekly update streak semi alive.

Check out Stereo Off’s review at – and if in a band, Zambah is a music app that aims to connect independent artists with bands. Not sure how it works yet, but we’ll give their beta a shot.

Glad the team and Zambah enjoyed the EP. Loving this quote in particular (regarding the “effectual” song):
“If you’re not dancing when this song come on then something is clearly wrong with you.”

Thanks for the review! Good way to start the spring, and hey the snow is finally gone. Time to shoot a video then.

Another Week of Hibernating. And Reviews!

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– 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 or a random hotel in LA – 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).

EP Review from Aural Press

Aural Press – an independent blog based in the UK – 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 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.
