OUR PLAYLISTS

Energetic Indie Pop.jpg

Energetic and upbeat, indie pop, alt pop, and new pop tunes. Usually these songs are higher tempo and more on the happy/major key side.

Chill with Me Pop.jpg

Chill, soft, and smooth songs. We're looking for tight pop productions with even dynamics that leave the listener feeling chill and relaxed.

Morning Coffee Soft Pop.jpg

Songs that have slim productions which are not overbearing. These songs are meant to ease the listener into their day and provide warm background music.

Happy Alt Pop.jpg

Songs that put you in a good mood. Primarily songs in the major keep with playful productions and positive or optimistic lyrics and energy.

Smaller productions with more organic elements. Think singer songwriter. These songs have soft dynamics and are great additions while working or doing chores.

Chill Indie Folk Pop.jpg
Drive To Work Indie.jpg

We're open to a variety of songs here. Big or small productions. For this playlist it's all about the mood. The songs need to strike deep. We'll test them in the car.

Pop Folk Favourites.jpg

Pop style productions that still have organic elements that draw it back into the folk work. Think guitars and pianos with 808s. We're open to a wide variety here.

Relaxing Instrumental Music.jpg

No lyrics. Straight instrumental productions. More on the simple side. For instance, only piano or guitar with a few simple elements. No big orchestral elements.

Music Submission

How many streams will I get if my song gets on your playlist?


You will get streams. However, this depends on a few things. Some are in our control. Some are our of our control. The higher up on a playlist usually means you get more streams. We also like to think we're good curators so we hope our listeners won't skip your song but this isn't something we can promise. Look at the question above to see how many streams you could receive for a placement.




On which playlist or marketing channel will you put my music?


This will depend on what's best for the song or artist. Maybe they are good with streams and they'd rather focus our help with online PR or social. However, most of the time, because we're working with small or indie artists, most people are like to focus on their Spotify brand.




Do your playlists have real listeners?


Yes. Real and active listeners. Take a look at the screenshot below. This includes the number of listeners and streams for one song within 28 days on our Energetic Indie Pop playlist.




How can I track streams and listener locations?


Only you will be able to see this in your Spotify for Artists profile. We don't have any visibility into this unless you give us access. Once you're added to a playlist then within 24 hours you will start to see the data come in.





Payment

If you don't accept my song will I get my money back?


You will get a 100% refund if you do not hear from us within 48hr. That is our promise to you. However, if we decide not to accept your song within this time frame then there will be no refund. Your payment covers the time and effort it takes for us to listen to your song and see if there's potential for us to help. We're human too, if you feel like you're being treated unfairly just talk to us.




What types of payment do you accept?


We accept Visa, Mastercard, and Paypal. Everything is SSL secure.




How do I confirm that you have received my submission?


We will notify you by email after you submitted your song to us. If you've submitted with the pro artist or active artist then we guarantee a response within 48hr of your submission. If you sent in a free submission then we will do our best to get back to you.





General

How can I contact you?


You can contact us at anytime at neoncollectivemusic@gmail.com




What genres do you focus on?


Our focus is to help the independent musician. However, our expertise are in the genre of singer songwriter, indie pop, folk pop, and soft pop. Take a look at our playlists and you'll see what we mean. Please do consider the genre before you submit a song. As much as we respect and like all genres of music we only curate what fits well within our playlists of indie, folk, and pop.




Can we submit more than once to the free option?


Of course you can. We offer the free submission because we know musicians should always be promoting their music. It's ideal to give a boost to your older songs that are still great but haven't seen the light of day. However, let's just say if we were to listen to the entire collection from start to finish of these songs, we'd be older than Dumbledore. If you want us to listen to a large chunk of the song, take a look at the active and pro plan.




Do you accept every song?


We do not accept every song. Unfortunately, that's not possible. We must be picky on who we decide to curate. If we're not picky, we'd have an enormous jumble of songs with no cohesion and our listeners would bounce on us.




How long will you keep my song on your playlist?


We try to keep each song up for a minimum of two weeks. Sometimes, if we love love love it than we will never take it off. On rare occasions we might take it down after a week.
