Sharing a fresh squeezed song with the world feels like winning.
Being a band’s pioneer is the gold ring of the indie rock world. It has the power to sky rocket your street cred from shoe-gazing wallflower to signed-band-shirt wearing, ear plug donning, front of the line mingling hipster (tho, you’d never call yourself that.)
Knowing all that... just imagine this:
A music blogger receives a strangely anonymous email in the dark morning hours. There is no sender, no title and no message.
Just a YouTube link. That’s it. Cool...
Curiosity cheers as she clicks through. Pleased by the quiet sighs of this mysterious gift, she is suddenly yet gently pulled close as it fills her with levity and whispers potential, intimately, in her sleepy ears. She sways, trying not to spill her coffee and decides, it’s hers.
