I Can't Say This To Your Face by Better Anyway

So, yesterday Better Anyway released a new track called I Can't Say This To Your Face, and I thought so highly of Afterthought when they released that a few weeks ago, that I'd bring you my thoughts on I Can't Say This To Your Face. 

I really thought that Better Anyway couldn't top Afterthought and yet here we are, we're back with another incredible track! I'm really starting to think that Better Anyway couldn't release a bad song even if they tried to, they really are just that good of a band! 

The track starts off pretty slow and mellow, it isn't fast, it isn't upbeat but it's still just as beautiful! It's one of those songs that for a 2/3 of the track it's slow, it's raw whilst still being a full band performance, however, you reach 2:15 and suddenly your mind is blown. You kind of expect it to be the case that the song picks up and suddenly you're flatlining over the vocals and you just want to scream because this is it, this i…

Electric Blue by Charles Darling

So today being Friday, Charles Darling has released his brand new track Electric Blue. I was lucky enough to hear the track before release. So, thank you for allowing me to do some reviews, means a lot! 

Moving onto the song, Electric Blue is insane! I didn't know what I was expecting, but I knew Charles was talented. He's got an incredible voice and I've found his covers and the music he did with The Half Eight incredible, so I had some expectations, but I didn't expect it to be as good as it is!

Electric Blue is such an infectious track, it really is next-level good! The beat, the vocals, the depth, the insanely catchy chorus... there are so many reasons why you should love this song, and they're just a few. The entire vibe this song gives off is something else, honestly! I can't even process just how much talent Charles has! 

This track is mind-blowingly good, it's incredible, it's flawless, and it's a generally enjoyable experience listening to Ele…

Introducing: Young Fatigue

Welcome to my third introducing post of the week! Today I'm introducing you to a band that hails from London although they're scattered across the south-east. 

Young Fatigue is an alt-rock/punk band that consists of; 

Ash Dixon - Vocals and Guitar
Charlie Roe - Drums
Michael Enger - Bass and Backing Vocals

This again, was a lovely band I found through twitter and I am so thankful they sent me a link to Dislocation because Young Fatigue was the band I didn't know I needed until I heard them. 

So, if you know how things work around here then you know that I'm going to tell you my thoughts on the earliest single and then the latest. 

Young Fatigue currently have two singles out, their debut single which is Dislocation and then the follow up single which is Pretty Now, which actually only came out a few weeks ago! 

Both tracks were recorded at Decimal Studios with Chris Coulter and Young Fatigue are planning to record a full EP with Chris towards the end of the year, which does so…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…

Introducing: Until You Disappear

Yup, I've found another new band who have somehow managed to make it into my top 5 straight off the bat! They followed me on Insta and messaged me and sent me a link to one of their track and well, now we're here bringing you a post! 

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 




Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …

Headlights by Near Mrs

So, Near Mrs' aren't a new band to the blog, they're a band I've mentioned a few times, and I honestly adore them! They were lovely enough to ask me if I'd be up for reviewing their new track, and of course I said yes! Now, this track doesn't drop until Wednesday, but I'm bringing you my thoughts on it today! So, thank you to Near Mrs for asking me to do this post! Let's get into my thoughts on Headlights! 

So straight off the bat, I love the intro! It starts off so strong and it's an engaging track from the get go, which I say this all the time, but that's important for me. I honestly think just from the first 30 seconds this could be Near Mrs' strongest track to date. It's a song that time just seems to disappear when you listen to it. It's honestly such an enjoyable experience listening to Headlights. 

I really do rate this track, it's got an incredible beat to it, it's loud, it's anthemic. It's a work of art. It is …

Week Fourteen: What I'm Listening To...

So, this week I've very much neglected blogging. I haven't felt like myself, I've had a little bit of a breakdown but nothing too serious just bpd things. But, I apologise for that, but university starts very soon, and I will be cutting down my posts when I start. I'll post my what I'm listening to, my Monday post, and possibly more posts during the week but it'll be a minimum of two a week. I will still be doing posts with bands whenever they want posts doing, and if I have ideas I will post them. But, the daily blogging is coming to an end, but I want to upload more than once a week. So, let's see what the future holds!
