Strongest Point(s): There is a cool Rock edge to this tune that is almost Punk. It is softened significantly by the vocals, resulting in a high energy mood that will attract a wide audience. This is present throughout the entirety of It’s So Fast, and really reinforces the lyrical content. The guitar work and melodies all fit together well and share this same kind of energy. Everything is pointed in the same direction, and it works quite well.
Target Audience Appeal: Fans of Surf Rock, 60’s Rock, and Pop Rock will dig It’s So Fast by The Silvers.
Artist target suggestions: Beach Boys, Dick Dale and the Deltones, The Cars, Cheap Trick, The Kinks, The Monkees, The Surfaris, The Cramps, MxPx, Green Day, Less Than Jake, The Astronauts, The Ramones, The Clash
