Regarding the streaming thing, they have an app you can download, so it looks like they're aiming at a lot of the Spotify/SC/HT market in general..as well as young bedroom producers and unsigned bands.
some artists in general are so ridiculously possessed with this idea of promoting their music despite its quality as much as possible and are ok even paying for such services that creates this illusion like something is happening to their career. Very cliche but, basically, just git gud. That's all. I don't see a point jumping so early into such websites/schemes too. Obviously, it's a decent business plan to use desperate bedroom producers that lack some perspective on their music from third-person view.
