Vanda / Press

“Have you ever heard a song and been so stunned by the vocals that you stop in your tracks? Most days I multitask while listening to songs, but this one brought me to a standstill. Because Los Angeles-based electro-pop artist Vanda‘s voice is “something special”. “Young For Life” premieres exclusively here, now. Beginning slowly with interesting sound effects and a very electric vibe, Vanda begins to sing delicately, displaying her range within the first few stances. The song builds up to a love ballad, not only the type of infatuation one might find with a significant other, but displaying her love and zest for life. It’s a lengthy, beautiful story of being alive. “Young For Life” is the perfect song to lend to the bittersweet end of summer, and to welcome each and every breath forward.”

“‘Moving On’ is the best indie pop record I’ve reviewed in a few months. The band covers more ground on four tracks than some artists do on a thirty track collection. For a first impression, this EP couldn’t be much better. I absolutely can’t wait to see what Vanda does next - the talent is there, as is the passion. That’s all that matters, right?”

“The piano in the instrumentation is very beautiful, and more than all, it's very feeling and natural, raw, pure. It created such a bare effect. The vocals are also very pure and raw, natural. They are beautiful, and more than anything, they are so feeling, they could have the power to make a listener cry, I am sure of that. The lyrics are very relatable and beautiful, feeling, deep. I believe this artist is so talented, a talent like this is rare and precious. If she can only get recognition, she could become one of the greatest and best selling artists of our time.”

“The female singer was quite impressive, I liked the way they raised their tone and power for the chorus. They are quite soothing and sweet in the verses, but become much more spirited and powerful for the chorus which was a nice change of pace. The music has decent ambiance, the beat was changed well and becomes more lively in the chorus to go with the vocals too. I think the vocalist has plenty of talent and is one to look out for in the future. Very listenable indeed.”

“The keyboard and bongos worked surprisingly well, its not a combination i would expect to hear work but it does. The vocals are great, the artist has a very talented sexy sounding voice and is clearly very talented. The production is top notch and is sure fire radio hit in the making, there is a huge audience in the uk for this kind of track and the artist should consider looking at the uk as market to explore. The melody and vocals work very and are strong, the production sounded like its had money spent on it. I would like to download the track and listen to it. Overall it works and i think could be a huge commercial hit.”

“The artist's voice pierces the song with brilliance and she sounds beautiful and rides the beat fantastic over the synth tones. The octaves she hits are not only impressive but breath taking. I can tell this song has been recorded professionally and brings with it a sense of care in the way it was arranged, leveled, engineered and mastered. I really like where this song is heading and the bridge transfers flawlessly from the verses and back to. I think this song could have some major commercial success if given the chance. I would buy a CD with this song on it based on this song alone. I could definitely see it being a hit single. I think you have potentially found a successful formula and hope it works well for you and look forward to hearing more songs from you in the future. Excellent job!”

“The intro with the piano is very capturing. The voice of the singer reminds me of Jordin Sparks! That is a good thing. I really like this song. It sounds like something that would be played in a television show, like Pretty Little Liars or Teen Wolf. I definitely think that this song could big hit. The singer has a truly beautiful voice and get hit very high notes. The instrumental parts are very professional and the tempo all flows together. The lyrics are meaningful and listeners could most likely relate. I think this song is a great one and it definitely should receive a high rating!”

“This country rock song, Keep on Waiting, has a powerful, commercial , romantic female lead singer, with a sweet windy, flexible voice that hits many high notes. The lyrics are very poetic and unique. The cry baby melody is catchy but is nothing out of the ordinary. The enthusiastic singer however could be the new Kelly Clarkson. There is a very soft band that knows to stay in the background and let the lead singer drown them out.”
