Actually, the thread title isn't exactly accurate.
I do feel some amount of shame, so I'll try to keep it relatively short and sweet.
With the last post in this thread being in August, I'm guessing it doesn't get viewed often, but I need to get better at spreading the word. Promotion is the name of the game, I'm told.
I've been playing in a band for a little while now.
We're called Natural Oil. Original rock and roll music.
The natural question is, "What do we sound like?" Unfortunately, I seem to have trouble answering that question. Not good at defining genres. The best I've heard from others is that we sound like early REM, circa the Green album era. And I think that fits, at least for the songs we have recorded to date.
This is the description I wrote for our press kit.
"A hearty mix of melodic, folk-infused tunes blended with swanky grooves and high intensity rock and/or roll. Lyrical poetry is poured over bright, flavorful melodies served with swinging bass lines, percussive passion and topped with a layer of vocal harmony for a varied and original dish designed to please the entire palette. No additives, no preservatives, only 100% Natural Oil."
We're in the process of putting out a 6-song EP we recorded after a female vocalist/multi-instrumentalist joined the group about a year ago. Overall, our songs cover a pretty wide range of classification in the rock world, but these particular ones were chosen to highlight the vocal harmonies that developed when we morphed from a three piece to a four piece.
Music is meant to be heard. So listen if you would like.https://www.reverbnation.com/naturaloil
You can also find us on the Book of Faces if you so desire. Simply search the band name.
