HEY! YOU! YOU IN A BAND?!

It's HAAAAAL!!!!
I like posting Hal when I talk about Kittysneezes itself and don’t have a better picture. Hal’s adorable.

HEY PEOPLE! Are you in a band? Are you in a band that doesn’t suck? Are you in a band that doesn’t suck that has an album out?  (Even if it’s been out for a while?)

If you are so inclined, Kittysneezes (that’s us!!) will run an article from you, walking us through your album! (Think of it as sort of an answer to the problem of the lack o’ liner notes with most digital releases. Or, let’s be serious, even with a lot of CD-era albums.)

We’ll, obviously, link your album — so people who are interested can go check it out!  And you can share a handy-dandy link with your fans with stuff they’ll love!  I know, right?!

Anyway — if this floats your boat, just get in contact with me, either through our Facebook Page or the Contact link on this very site!

The setting is a ballroom, dark and perhaps sort of dingy — think the rave in Zion from the second Matrix movie, but the difference is that instead of the audience finding it unpleasant, the ravers are the ones having a bad time.  They are dancing, but their facial expressions are pained and tortured.  Some are crying, some are just grimacing.  A few of them have facial bruises.  We pan up and find burly men holding guns in the balconies, looking serious and harshly militaristic.  The band is on stage, and they are performing the song neither happily or scared — they’ve got a job to do and they’re doing it, nothing more, nothing less.  The song itself should be a happy, upbeat, electropoppish type number — ideally nothing lyrically to betray the unpleasant scene.

For a song about two characters.

We see the band set up, rocking behind two characters, a boy and a girl on the couch (for example; these would be the characters sung about in the song) watching television. During the first half of the video, the band is pretty much rocking like in a straightforward rock video. The couple on the couch gets marginally annoyed, as they’re trying to watch TV and a band is rocking loudly behind them.

A band goes around helping out people by doing their chores with the Power Of Rock. For example, the band comes upon a guy trying to get a bucket of bricks or something to the second floor of his house, through a pulley, but it’s kinda heavy, so it’s a little difficult.
