  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re doing another Recent Releases post, but this time talking about Royals (and Two Year Break), Late Night Legacy and When Nothing Works.   Let’s kick it off with talking about the new track from Two Year Break and Royals. Let’s start by saying this collab is everything we could have ever hoped and dreamed of! This is exactly what I needed in my life! Truly phenomenal! I’m obsessed with this track! Double Life is an absolute belter! This is everything I could have hoped for. It’s got a cool groove to it, it’s got some nice, dirty riffs in it, some beautiful, varied vocals and it’s just everything! This is such a tune! Absolutely obsessed with this track! Truly magnificent. It’s got some subtle tempo changes, and truly this hits the spot! I’m obsessed with this! This is one of those tracks that seems to fly by! With a listening time of a little over 3 minutes, times flies with this track! It’s a belter! A tune and a half! Obsessed with it! Ev

Recent Releases: Clay J Gladstone, Misplaced and Protect Your Heart

  Welcome back to the blog! I’m sorry I’ve been away for a few weeks, and that some of these reviews have subsequently been delayed. I aim to clear the backlog within the next week. I needed time away because in case you missed it on my socials, 2 of my grandparents passed away within 4 days of each other on the Easter bank holiday weekend. So, I needed some space, but I’m back! Today we’re going to be talking about Protect Your Heart, Clay J Gladstone and Misplaced! 3 bands we love and adore and are blog favourites!   Let’s kick this post off with We Will Never Be Heroes by Protect Your Heart. At this point Protect Your Heart may as well be my favourite small band. Truly the most magnificent band, and one with so much potential. No matter what they put out they always kill it. This track is no different, it’s an absolute belter! Maybe it doesn’t go as hard as some of their other tracks but I still love it all tue same. I think it’s just the intensity and catchiness that’s different. I

Drive Thru by Hometruths

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Hometruths again! It feels like forever since we last spoke about this lovely lot, and they truly are a magnificent band! They always hit the spot, and they know what they're doing, so let's skip the waffling and get into this!  Hometruths always kill it, and this track is no exception to that! This is a softer and more chilled out, not too intense track, it's a good track. It's not what we're used to from Hometruths, but it's still solid. It's not as punchy, and intense, but it's still got a great feel to it, and it's still a phenomenal track. It's got a surreal feel to it, and I just love it. It's such a great track, and it's just a nice, refreshing change. This doesn't beat the likes of So Over You and fan favourite, Soundtrack, it's still a fantastic track, and it's just different to what we're used to, but I really like that about it. You ca

Therefore I Am by The Blams

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about the latest single from our friends in The Blams, so let's skip the waffling and get into this!  Straight off, this is not a track to play around my dog because the intro features a dog barking and she thinks that means she can bark. However, this track does offer a darker, grungier sound and feel to it than some of the other tracks we've heard from The Blams. This is definitely a darker track and one that has more muted vocals in comparison to the instrumental aspects of the track. It's a great track, but that is something to note. This track is also a shorter, punchier track, like yesterday's track was, this track has a listening time of under 3 minutes, so whilst not beating Hightail, it's still short and sweet. I will say that these shorter tracks that seem to be the trend currently, are so much punchier than their longer counterparts. These are shorter songs done right. Every second of

Forever by Hightail

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! We're back and today we're talking about our wonderful friends in Hightail! They've just dropped a new single called forever, and they reached out to me a couple weeks back and asked me if I'd do press for it, and we all know I don't say no. So, let's stop the waffling and get into this!  This track is quite short with a listening time of under 2 minutes, but every second is phenomenal. This has to be one of my favourite Hightail tracks, the whole feel of it is immaculate, the whole vibe, just everything. It's loud, it's punchy, it's anthemic. It's got a great feel to it and it's just everything. It's such a surreal track and I'm truly in love with this track! Every second of it is incredible, and I'm just in love with it, and it truly is a tune and a half. It's truly something else. It's got a classic blink-182 feel to it and I'm truly in love with this track.  It's got a differ

Tyrant by Pavé

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're talking about our wonderful friends in Pavé again! A little over two weeks ago, they dropped a new single titled Tyrant, so let's skip the rambling and get into this!  I love Pavé; I think they're an incredible band and one that really do hit the spot every time! They seemingly get better and better with the more tracks they release.  Tyrant has a bit of a grungy feel to it. I like it a lot, it’s got a nice groove to it, and those vocals on the chorus are where it’s at. I absolutely love the feel of it.  This is possibly my favourite track from  Pavé to date. This track just hits the spot for me. It's got an incredible feel to it, it's got a great groove to it, and it's just an incredible track. There's not one aspect of this track that I could criticise. It's not a stereotypical catchy track, but it's still catchy, and I know this track is going to be making its way into heavy rotation. I love everythi

A Place That Feels Like Home by Slackrr

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about the new album from Slackrr. I'm a little bit late to the review, but we're here and we're doing it! So let's cut the rambling and get into talk about A Place That Feels Like Home by Slackrr. The album opens with Home, and it's insane. The energy is insane, Slackrr pack a punch with their music, and this track is a perfect example of that, it's got a great energy to it, it holds your attention, and to say this track is nearly 4 minutes long, it doesn't feel like it, so that's always good, I love the intensity of this track too. It's not heavy, it's just fast-paced, and has a good feel to it, which is what we want from an opening track of an album. I really love this track, and it's a strong opening track. The second track comes in the form of Playing With Fire, which is truly something else. I love this track, it's phenomenal, and it's one I cannot recommend en
