Moving Backwards - Single & Music Video

$600

9

Hey world! We — a seven-piece Brooklyn-based indie rock band — had such a successful kickstarter for our debut EP To Be Frank, and we've since recorded five singles. We were so grateful for your help with the EP, and we need your help again to put these singles out there!

Our first single "Moving Backwards" is coming out this summer. It's already been recorded, so if we reach our goal with your help, the money made from this Kickstarter is going towards mixing, mastering, and making the music video. We're a little bit in the red from recording these singles, so any additional contributions will go towards paying that off. And then any additional contributions after that will go towards mixing, mastering, and making music videos for the additional four singles. We'll make making similar Kickstarters to complete these singles throughout the year (all, of course, with a reasonable and conservative goal).

Since releasing our debut EP in April, we've been writing new material at an impressive rate and regularly performing at such classic New York City venues as Webster Hall, Bowery Electric, and Arlene's Grocery. We are extremely excited to share our new music with all of you. Please help us bring it to life!

Risks and challenges

The song is already recorded, so we've really got this one in the bag. Certainly, there's always a risk in going off schedule, but we are confident in our producer Dan Crowley's mixing and mastering skills, our music video concept and plan, and our time management skills. Anyone that knows us knows that we will deliver.
