Pro General Comments: Dear The Silvers!Please note: I don't comment on quality of individual instrumentation as my expertise delves more into overall performance, marketing, melody, etc Great marketing appeal with the animated group photo - it adds a little fun to your brand and the market can always use some of this, especially now. You have a fun "Southern California beachy vibe" going on here. The song has an upbeat feel to it, which is always good, especially when pitching to film/TV. Upbeat songs are in high demand - especially for commercials. Your song is a great length too- not too long, not too short. It's always a good idea to have a universal title- using a catch phrase- it catches the attention. Your opening starts well, draws you into the song.Song structure works well, you have a good handle on this. Verses lead to hook very well, solo to outro- all flows well. This is not always easy for everyone. It seems pretty clear you have this down. Bg vocals add a nice pep to the song, they work well with the lead vocal. The song is catchy. It's "toe-tapping." Arrangements overall support everything like they should.It's always good to include a lyric- to help evaluation. Even though it seems the singer/subject are at odds you still retain that upbeat feel. This is good. Contrast makes things more dynamic. Your rhyme schemes work well and aren't too predictable. The tone is conversational which works well. If I had a lyric I could comment a bit more. What did your subject do exactly to the singer? It feels a bit vague. Maybe this could be a bit clearer?Perhaps the vocal that works well could be tightened/smoothed up a tad on some of the notes that are held such as 2:05- doesn't matter "anyway." Overall the vocal works well- but some of the wording was hard for me to decipher- so that could be a bit clearer, more pronounced on some lines.Again, great marketing picture, with the cartoon profiles. You might even want to use this in a video down the road. The Monkees and the Archies shot through the roof with this type of marketing. They even released a song in 2018! https://youtu.be/05rUSARpr4g The other advantage of this is, not alot of people are doing it- so it will make you stand out. Just a thought. It's on the tip of my tongue who your band reminds me of- but for some reason Huey Lewis was one I pulled out of the hat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J08ZwySCoJ8 He had that kinda fun vibe going on. I would work this to your advantage as much as possible. When looking for songs- music supervisors remember brands. If you pitch yourselves as a fun surfer band- that will come to mind a year later- when they need material like that.The recording shows off the song just fine. If you wanted to pitch it to film and TV it seems like you could get a crisper recording. The song is fun enough I could see it getting placed in some beach style movies. Nowadays- getting these types of recordings- is a walk in the park. Overall solid work all around. Good luck!
Quote From Pro: The Silvers have a fun, California beach vibe which could lend itself well to film//TV looking for this type of sound.
