Contest Brief

I need a name for my solo electronic music project (i.e. the artist name).

Practical stuff:
- Should be fairly short - ideally two words, max 4 syllables
- It should be easy to communicate and for people to understand and search for
- There shouldn’t be an existing thing called that already, especially a band (check Bandcamp, Soundcloud and Spotify at least)
- It shouldn’t have any negative connotations

The vibe:
- It should sound good / have a good ring to it
- It should be roughly midway on the serious to wacky scale
- It should suit the music - mostly upbeat with a dark twist (see below for a link to hear the music)
- It should be a bit abstract and devoid of too much existing meaning - an empty vessel
- It should be memorable
- It should give a good impression of the music even if you haven’t heard it
- It should be colourful
- UPDATE: There shouldn't be any obvious music references - words like 'Melody', 'Tunes' etc

Good examples of existing artists:
Floating Points
Flying Lotus
Pink Floyd
Beach House
Arcade Fire
Daft Punk
Tame Impala
Fleet Foxes
Kiasmos
Little Dragon
Rival Consoles

The first 5 tracks will give you a good idea of the sound.

    In real sense, you can be making credible music, but no one might not know about it for long . some of the few and simple steps in getting the music project name is as discussed below.


    Explanation:
    The name should not be difficult to pronounce and say over the phone. always avoid using numbers for letters
    make sure the name steers clearly the profanity.
    i.e make publications that will feature you.
    Pick three of your favorite words and say them loudly and check issues like if they lough if you are targeting the serious people.
    make sure the trademark you are using you are the first person using.
    you can use your name as long as it wont confuse someone else.
    The next thing is getting the domain name after settling on your choice.
