Thirteen, a hard rock band from Washington DC contacted me on Twitter to ask if I would preview four of their songs (All available on iTunes, and give my input) and rather than just listening and telling them what I thought over a message, I decided to listen to them and give my feedback here on the website. These are not all on an EP, they are all singles on iTunes.
They only asked me to listen to four songs, but I must say, I was very impressed! Those four songs were, "Romeo Kiss", "I Let Go", "The Siren", and "Time" and those four showed off their talent a lot. They are currently still a 'smaller' band, but they are incredibly talented and hopefully will get some recognition soon.
The four songs they asked me to check out told stories of romance, break ups, possible suicidal thoughts, and strength. It appears as though they have two very talented singers, one male, and one female. Their male singer, Mark, sings on "I Let Go (His Goodbye", and "The Siren (The Man On The Edge)" and the female, Savannah, sings on "Romeo Kiss" and "Time."
All four songs are wonderful, but our personal favorites for the moment are "Romeo Kiss" and "Time." "Romeo Kiss" sounds as though it is about a break up, but rather than being saddened by this, she sounds rather glad to be free of the control and just wishes to forget it. "I think I'll start a fire to burn this memory. Baby please, set me free." I found that to be rather empowering, and thought it stood out because of that.
"Time" is one of those songs that stands as the perfect example of what music is there for. Its generally an escape, or serves as reminders for various things for various people. This particular one may just remind people that everything will get better if you just give it some time. Too many people forget that, and this song will definitely help remind some people of that.
These guys are definitely worth checking out -don't pass them up. Be sure to check out all these songs and many more on iTunes and follow them on Twitter, and Facebook.
