Default New Band. Check us out please

Hi all!

We're a new band from Sheffield, England and I want to get some thoughts on our stuff!

You can hear a new track from our debut EP

"Teach Yourself Jazz Punk: Vol. 1" on our SoundCoud. Plus 2 old demos.

I gave your stuff a listen. Not my style at all, but that's personal preference.

What I liked:

- You have a good, clean sound.
- The recordings are good quality
- Your drumming is nice and appropriate
- The fusion-esque parts are cool

What I wasn't sure about:

- Why this has the word "jazz" anywhere near it. Nothing in any of these recordings is remotely jazz, so I'd be very careful how you market yourselves.
- I just can't stand the punk/emo genre that you're going for. Again though, that's personal preference.

Overall, notwithstanding my personal misgivings about the genre, I didn't mind it at all. I think you have some talent, both instrumentally and songwriting-wise, I think you'll get some success.

Seriously though, jazz? No.

EDIT: I hope you don't find my comments too harsh. I'm not into punk at all, but I thought your tracks were very good for what they were. I'm sure punk lovers would enjoy them more than me. That said, I can only comment about the sound quality and the drumming, both of which were good.
