NFT: Music Thread - Local Artist Seeking Feedback

JeffJersey212 : 6/29/2020 7:30 am
Hey all, long time lurker here. My band from Jersey City finally put out our first music video and I was wondering if any musicians (or music fans) would provide any feedback. I know there have been plenty of musician threads in the past, so I guess just hoping to hear what you all think on the song/video itself. Thanks all!

I like it.

Thanks! We played covers in Hoboken for years (Willie McBrides, McSwiggans, Littletown, etc.) but recently started originals prior to the pandemic. We played at FM in Jersey City but that's now closed... but we're hoping to line up shows with the Pet Shop and a few other spots downtown once the world reopens a bit!


Also, if ya like our music we've been doing streams every few weeks to raise $$ for the homeless in downtown Jersey City. We've raised $3,000 to date and have had a few local guests perform as well. I put the link below, they are called "Variety Shows". Tomorrow we have a special guest from Ireland and also from the local New Jersey legends the Bantry Boys (our singer is the son of one of the members)

I enjoyed both the song and video

Thanks for the feedback and the honesty, it's much appreciated!
Music Videos are pretty tough to appeal to the masses (or so I'm learning haha), but at least happy to hear you enjoyed the music!

thx so much Joey!
I've always had a soft spot

for songs with a riff that makes you think, "I can't believe no one else has already written a song with that riff yet." And this has that. I mean that as a high compliment.

I really appreciate it, that's awesome to hear/very nice of you to say!

On the writing side when we come up with something like this we immediately think "I'm sure we're going to find out 2-3 years from now that this sounds like a random song from decades ago, right?" haha
Fun Hard Rock song!

Nice job man. I wonder if Lucky 7 will have music again after this. That's my go-to bar in JC. I would totally go see this if I lived near.

Thanks man! I love Lucky's, I live right up the block. Hopefully live music will be a thing again sooner than later, but we'll see. Appreciate the feedback!

but I'd pay for that song
Not my kind of music at all, but

I found myself REALLY liking it A LOT. Great sound, catchy riffs, and very tight musically. The video, too, was inventive and distinctive. For me, though, the lyrics could be a lot better. There wasn't a hook, and they didn't move the song from a point A to a point B (let alone Z). I guess that lyrics don't matter much to many rock fans, but with great lyrics, it's so strong musically that I could picture people screaming it out in arenas and other bands wanting to cover it. Keep up the good work.

No problem man, you guys did the work. I'm in LA with the same hopes for playing live again. Unfortunately I think we are some months off. I started hosting a jam night at my local pub a few months before this. There is awesome talent there and I miss it so much. We shall return.

I appreciate the feedback very much (especially the arenas part haha)! I for sure understand your perspective on the lyrics and it's very helpful receiving your detailed opinion and thought process. This is the first song we've ever recorded, but getting input like this and from everyone else above is def invaluable for song we put together going forward.

Thanks everyone for listening and replying, it means a lot! I'll try not to spam/over promote on here by any means, but if anyone is interested in our music going forward we're pretty easy to find (will be on spotify hopefully next week)!

We're playing a fundraiser stream at 6:30pm today on facebook, instagram and youtube (Supermutt) to raise $$ for feeding the homeless in Jersey City. We've raised $3,000 so far during quarantine and hope to keep it up!

I liked it, as well...

tight, riffy, and good vocals. Your bass player is excellent....flat picker? Only constructive criticism is to raise the bottom end a bit. Get that bass out front a bit.

Thanks so much! I am actually the bass player (flat picker indeed) so I really appreciate the compliment and constructive criticism as well.
