Indie, synth pop songs with some ‘80s influence and male or female vocals are needed for a $1,000 placement by the CEO of a non-exclusive music licensing company for placements on a popular TV Land Television Series. Please submit mid-to-up tempo songs that are in the general stylistic wheelhouse of artists like (but not limited to), Bear In Heaven, Naomi August, Chromeo, etc. The following references from the licensing company offer an idea of the sound and vibe they need:
Submit songs that are reflective of the ’80s era, but with a fresh and current approach. Songs should have strong, engaging melodies, with catchy hooks and choruses. The production should contain modern electronic characteristics incorporated with some with live instrumentation like funky bass lines and cool electric guitar riffs. Your vocal performance should be contemporary and have plenty of personality and attitude.
Although they didn’t ask for specific lyric themes, universal lyrics that avoid specific names, places, dates, times, brands and profanity are good. Do not copy or rip off the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape or form. Use them as a general guide for tempo, tone, and overall vibe. Broadcast Quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). All Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. (PDT) on Saturday, April 1.
