Chris MacTire and Ralph Nicastro of the US band Boxed Wine joined me for episode 16 of Indie Music Tips.
Indie Music Tips #16 Free Music With Boxed Wine
For the past few months I have been gradually transferring the series to this URL and here is the first of the fresh as yet unheard recordings, only, my apologies to Chris and Ralph that it has taken me since our conversation in June to get here.
In this episode the conversation centres around the concept of giving your music away for free and how you can gain leverage from taking that option. We also touch on alternative revenue streams, marketing of a full LP, the importance of track order on a release and understanding your audience. Somehow we also touch on transforming into Beyonce…..
Marque Dos from New York in the USA is the synth-pop quartet of Andrea Scanniello (Vocals / Keys), Kelly McCarthy (Vocals / Keys), Chris Nova (Vocals / Bass) and Ralph Nicastro (Guitar / Keys).
Very recently formed by half the member of Boxed Wine, who remain intact and on course, with two additional players Marque Dos bring back recollections of early pioneers of the genre, but without the gloominess.
Although there is only the one track so far City At Night, if is a signpost to the direction of travel, then I would anticipate if you are a Mediterranean Clubber, you will become very familiar with their sounds this coming summer.
For a change including the term ‘pop’ in a description isn’t a denigration but a vote of confidence.
