Default Finally. My first single.

At 40 years old, I finally released something!

A 2 song "single" - The songs "On A Dime" and "Flagplanting"

I have had "singles" and even an "album" before, but not really "officially."

not sure what it all means these days - distrokid made it very easy for me.

But I am still celebrating it.

The songs didn't seem entirely finished to me, but at the same time, will they ever feel that way? Fuck it. Had to release it.

https://open.spotify.com/album/1qxO3...SLuMFLTu87eLHQ

Band name is: The Secret Reasons

Makes me think "Roger Waters pop music". Chorus hook reminds of later era Soundgarden. Clean production. I like that it doesn't sound like something from "now". Spotify makes it difficult to post links to open in their desktop app, they need to come up with a better way - but The Secret Reasons came up in search.

Yeah, I have a difficulty making anything sound "modern" but I mean, it is what it is, I like it and that's good enough haha. I dont really strive for anything too modern sounding anyway. There are influences I take from modern stuff tho

and thanks! Maybe I posted the wrong link tho too.

Doesnt matter if it sounds modern or not, it`s all down to the song and the vocal performance for most punters.
This is a good `un.

thank you! I think the best thing I can do is just make exactly what I want, if there's a vision, follow it.

but more importantly, I am just really trying to get things DONE this year.
