download our music

“A .wav file (pronounced ‘wave’) is the file an artist sends to a digital distributor for music. A .wav file allows for all of the sounds that have been produced in a track to be able to be heard when someone downloads it. The .wav file is what is played when you press the preview button for a song on iTunes. The .wav file is then compressed into an mp3 file for the buyer. 
The fact that BTS tweeted a photo of a downloaded .wav file may indicate a possible release of a song or track. As I stated earlier, the .wav file is sent to a digital distributor (CDbaby, for instance is the number one distributor in the US music market) and the distributor sends the file to he set up on iTunes, Spotify, virtually any streaming or downloading service for music. 
Our boys could possibly be dropping a song/track ☺️” - @minfreakingyoongi

SO IN OTHER WORDS HA WE MIGHT BE GETTING A NEW SONG
Arrrr you a music lover? (A message about pirating.)

A month ago my writing partner, Max Sandler, and I released two demos on Bandcamp under the band name VANLIS.

I have been writing music ever since I can remember, but had never had the courage to post any of it online, so I was nervous to share it with so many eyes and ears on me. But thankfully, we were incredibly humbled by the overwhelming positive response we received.

However, while we were recently doing some research and writing over FaceTime (Max is based out of LA) we discovered that some folks had been illegally downloading and sharing our music. Although we know in this age pirating is inevitable, and we don’t expect to change the music industry by bringing this up, it was a bit of a bummer. Not only for us, but especially because we have so many friends and loved ones that are independent artists of all kinds… we believe everyone should be compensated for their hard work. We know the folks who posted our songs are fans and likely had our best interest at heart, but when you illegally download the work of independent artists, you do take away from their livelihood and discourage them from creating more. Thankfully we have other sources of income, but it was a bit disheartening.

Anyway, once we release a proper EP we will be sure to make our music available on platforms like SoundCloud, Spotify, iTunes, and YouTube so everyone can listen and enjoy. Our demos are just building blocks for what will be an EP that you will hopefully enjoy, and we are slowly working on ideas for what we want our sound and image to be, so that we can grow our little band and provide our listeners with more content (including some free content) like music videos, merch, and more.

We do think music should be accessible to everyone though, so for those who were unable to download our music for whatever reason, we made our songs free for a limited time, so those who do not have the means can enjoy our product without stealing.

And for those of you who did purchase our music and have been spreading the word, we are incredibly grateful for your help and loyalty and we look forward to being able to put out a full EP and play shows in the new year thanks to your continued support!

Yours,

Nat & Max
