My EverythingGreat upbeat song. Like the echo effects on the vocals. Like the special effects on the keyboards and guitar. Drums bring whole song together with great beats and accents. Really creative Indie Pop song! Lyrics sound like content has to do with vampires. I can't make out all the lyrics.Some are quite profound.Would be good in a movie. Moving song traveling would like to hear song on ear buds while in a subway going through the city with the light coming flickering in the windows with reflections of moving lights,shadows,and people. Looking forward to hearing more from Roads. Like the singers voice great effects. Song is progressive, with great added in technical sounds
ExcellentThis song is so well done. Excellent production. This is not even a genre that I might usually listen to but because it is so well written, performed and produced, it is a hit with me. I especially like the vocal layering in the end of the song. Very positive feel as well.
A smash hitFrom the first notes of a sharp guitar, you will be addicted to this beautiful song. And when the voice comes, you are definitely conquered. The memorable chorus will finish you for sure. How is this song not at the top of the charts ??
Great track!Really nice production on this track! Ian is a talented multi-instrumentalist from Portland, Oregon. I’m going to go check out the Roads Facebook page. I look forward to checking out more of his material.
Roads - The right way to make a song with good vibesRoads is impressive, I really have listened to Sélois a few times, the ability to diversify the sound is something that always makes me happy. The guitars are pulsating and at all times maintains a constant rhythm but with gentle nuances when necessary. The drumms are something that keeps a certain time that accompanies speech, is this is done in a simple way is functional one of the things that make Roads something good to hear is the timing that works correctly, no problems constancy, even when the pauses are intentional and the vocal feature is well directed, I remember that when I made a critique of the music of Sélois called Western I was impressed and put reservations in the beautiful composition, but in Roads Sélois chooses a different path but fulfills his service with high quality, the mix of this song is excellent is the balance between the voice and the guitar and extremely tasteful. No more delays, it's something to listen to both to give that "Wake Up" and to make you happier at times when things can seem complex or difficult in life. After I've listened a few times and resolved to do this review, I can say: "Sélois made Roads a direct message, with aesthetically pleasing and harmonically refined language". Roads is for those who have a good vibe or want to regain their daily good moods in formidable style.
My EverythingFirst impression is your lead vocalist sounds like the British Band The Pet Shop Boys. Though it has an 80's vibe the electronic sound effects ramp it up to a club dance song. I think the singer's voice is ace and if there was any suggestion of tweaking this track to improve it, I would say don't enhance the vocal electronically, just keep it natural on the vocal track. Excellent production in every way!
Sweet music.I am really enjoying your music..wait, i love your music.I love this track,its alternative flare,its sharp lyrics,it really captures the listener and holds them through the whole song,so many other songs from other artists i listen to,i switch off after the first minute. You are very inspiring musician.
Outstanding song and exceptionally composition!There's a lot to say about this song, but I'll be brief it anyway. The music has impressed me deeply much. A powerfull indie rock-pop tune from a very talented musican who wrote the lyrics and plays obviously all instruments on this studio recording. It isn´t only the engaging beat from the drums which forcing the music constantly on a higher level. In this arrangement are also genuinely well-played guitars accompaning the whole song. The rythm varied often. The drummer is playing this kick-stuff really powerfull and perfect. That isn´t really easy because of the orchestration with different parts of the arrangement, but the whole instrumentation sounds really virtuos and implements a deep feeling for music. The fantastic played e-guitars especially in the bridge increases this tune and is another extra factor. The singer with his unique vocals brings really a strong feeling into the song. The lyrics are impressive and the romantic passion unleashes feelings of someone who is touched by heart of his beloved. This ambitious arrangement by using electronical effects and modulated tunes is a composition full of unconventional sounds what brings a hypnotically feel into the music. The digitally mixing and mastering is professionell. Well, you might be a music fan, surching for the light at the end of the tunnel for good music. This song could be a radio hit and it´s original. I´m sure, you will also hear, why this song is ranked #1 on N1M.

ReviewWow what a catchy tune ???? has a feel of placebo, fall out boy, I really want to play amped on Xbox now lol. This is a great production, fine recording a professional piece of work/art. You should be very proud of yourself, this is raw and real, true emotion in music I very surprised that this is not playing on the radio. You have great sound, pure and real. Your a well rehearsed band and you can hear that in this recording. All in all fantastic x
ambient sounding reverb echothe song was a psychedelic ambient wall of reverb and echo. vocals were simple but floating over the music. vocalist had kind of high voice but was thicked by layering. the beat was solid drum groove. spacey atmosphere with a feel of U2 mixed with The Flaming Lips.
metro 80'sthis is a good song it has a good message and it is not overly done in fact i think the production is very good ,slick but clean and cool kinda metro rock ,I like that there is a real band behind the vocals and the drummer is quite good as well,the vocals are clean and well done enthusiastic vibe to it as well.I like the name too ROADS not fussin about with anything too pretentious, good graphics on the cover.
Throwback To G ForwardAlways a pleasure to hear a song with energy and purpose, a little more polish will see these guys gain a following their enthusiasm deserves, hope they maintain the conviction in the music
Quantum artist - unlimited potentialThere will always exist those sons a beeches that just "have" it and everything seems to come together in a fluid, almost effortless way. This is Roads. Roads take you somewhere - an obvious inflection into their meaning and pop sensibilities. Star quality emanates from this energetic mover of sound. A good mix of vocals matching the hook and an urgent drum track that pushes things nicely along. Lacks just a teeny tiny bit of explosiveness, but otherwise a catchy and well played song that should turn some ears inward to the Roads.
