GUEST BLOG: Six Rules To Becoming Less Entitled And More Successful

1. Listen To Everyone. Look – criticism can be tough to swallow. But remember, there might actually be constructive ideas in comments that people make about your band. Whether it is about your songwriting, social media presence, flyer designs, or gear tones – there is always something to improve upon.  Always.

“5 or 8” immediately brings to mind the image of a curtain rising over a stage. Everything about it has me hanging on each note; on each word. Melodic, vocally exceptional, and, overall, electrifying, it’s a sweeping introduction to Impulses Drive that screams “hit single!” There is a stunning power and vibrato to Briana Stroeble’s (rhythm guitar and vocals) vocals. With a more piano/synth driven beat, “Dedicated Lungs” begins like a cry for battle, with Shane Lewis on guitar, aiding the song in its buildup to the first verse.
