    Hey guys!

    My band (Oh, Adeona) just released our first song and I am super pumped about it because it’s the first “sound” I have on the interwebz after 11 years of playing bass, but also because we produced the music and video ourselves.

    I am proud of what we put together but hope to keep getting better with writing, mixing and video production, so your feedback would be VERY much appreciated.

    Let me know what you math rockers think! If you like what you hear, we will be releasing more music soon so stay up to date on the Facebooks!



    Hope it gets your energy levels up!
    Tom

    We totally considered adding a warning to the video... I guess maybe we should have, haha.

    We definitely wanted to get the energy across through the video but I think we took it a bit too far, haha. Glad you're diggin' it though! Kinetic is a kind word to describe it...

    No Problem man, you gotta share the love!
    I liked the video too, for what its worth.
     
  8. I like it. It's a great song and a very cool looking video.

    Although, and this is just my 2¢ worth—maybe slightly less movement/choppiness in the camera cuts—your song flows really well, and the video should flow with it—I just found that it was a little hard to watch at certain points because the images were cutting and moving so fast. But it could just be me... take it for what it's worth...

    Again, very cool, you have a right to be proud.
     
  9. I like it! Who do you guys listen to?
     
  10. Great song but too jumping around / choppiness on the video (as other have said)

    I'm older (ok old) and don't get some of the new genre things... what makes something "Math Rock" ? sounds like instrumental rock or fusion to me

    The drummer and guitarist who formed the band back when they were in high school listen to a lot of math/ post-rock, post-hardcore stuff, alternative.
    Portugal the man, Fear Before the March of Flames, Maps & Atlases, Daughters, Giraffes?Giraffes!, Grizzly Bear, Fleet Foxes, Queen, Rage Against the Machine, Number 12 Looks Like You.

    I listen(/listened) to Opeth, Snarky Puppy, Between the Buried and Me, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Animals as Leaders, Scale the Summit, Dream Theater, Rage Against the Machine, Queen, Jamiroquai, Pain of Salvation, Rush, Porcupine Tree, Fear Before the March of Flames, Tool, Liquid Tension Experiment, The Contortionist, ...

    This is what Wikipedia had to say about Math Rock (since I didn't really grow up listening to it like the other 2 dudes in my band):
    Math rock is a rhythmically complex, often guitar-based, style of experimental rock and indie rock music that emerged in the late 1980s, influenced by progressive rock bands like King Crimson and 20th century minimalist composers such as Steve Reich.

    We have a lot of varying sounds, especially the stuff we are writing now, it is almost like blues/funk-rock/metal.

    Thanks - I really, really like King Crimson; but if I listen too much or without watching it, I find myself getting short and angry. }8-P
    You guys have a good sound... not angry or nasty, but a real keen edge.

    Pretty cool! I really dig it!

    I'll agree with what the others have said about the video, but I do like a lot of the different shots and angles in it.

    Great! Excellent composition, execution and sound. The video is nigh unwatchable but I really dig the song!
     
  20. Killer! Great playing throughout, especially the bass lick at 1:30.
