ThisIsNotAScene.com is an independent music review website that came to life in early 2010. We are passionate about music, regardless of perceived genres or ‘Scenes’. We are not concerned about hair styles, how tight our jeans are or if our clothes glow in the dark… All we care about is the music!
Our aim is to provide an unbiased insight into what the new releases, re-issues, albums, EPs and live shows are like. We have a small but talented team of reviewers beavering away to bring you reviews. We cannot review every new release; or watch every show as that would require the entire population of China on the staff and about 300 hundred years to do… but what we do review, we put our all into each and every article.
If you are a PR agency and wish to get your artists reviewed then do not hesitate to get in contact with us using the Contact Form. If you are in a band and want you music reviewed, then also get in touch with us, we’d be happy to take a listen. Our only stipulation is that you have at least a 3 track EP, professionally recorded, that you are willing to send to us, either physically or digitally. We do not review music held on Facebook, Reverbnation, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, YouTube or any other such platform, we require links to download digital press kits or physical copies sent to us.
PLEASE NOTE: As we receive hundreds of submissions each month, we cannot guarantee to review everything that we receive, it would be simply impossible to do so.
We hope you like our website and especially our reviews. Get in touch if you would like us to review your work/artists or if you have anything you would like to ask us.
