Why I Love Twin Atlantic

Twin Atlantic aren't your average band, for many reasons, which I will get onto in a minute. Twin Atlantic are one of them bands that actually play instruments and write their own lyrics... Twin Atlantic find joy in being the band that they are, they aren't doing it for money, and as the wise Sam McTrusty once said, they don't make that much money from what they do. Now, I look at other bands that are massive, and then I look at Twin Atlantic. Twin Atlantic are so talented, I actually can't process how talented they are. Just listen to any Twin Atlantic song and then try and say that they can't sing or play music... because Sam McTrusty, Barry McKenna, Ross McNae and Craig Kneale will prove you wrong.
So why is it that I love this band more than anything?
1. Gordon... only Twin Atlantic fans will understand this, and I'll try and link the video at the end of this post.
2. Sam has the voice of an angel
3. Cello solo Barry (and the cello solo is... it leaves me breathless)
4. Out of all the bands I've seen live, nobody has been as good as Twin Atlantic.
5. Let us just remember and appreciate the rain mac phase they went through...
6. Their accents... brb I'm melting at their accents
7. Their latest album GLA is a tribute to their city, how beautiful is that?
8. Sam's very bizarre tweets, I still can't get my head around the stealing candy from a baby one...
9. Ross' lack of tweeting, I'm sorry how many tweets in how many years?
10. Craig's photography... and the fact he supplies us with all the Twin Atlantic photos we need
11. The opening line to Time For You To Stand Up
12. The fact nobody in Nottingham seemed to want Sam to crowdsurf in 2016
13. I hate a lot of band's fanbase's and I'm ashamed to be a fan of some bands, but Twin Atlantic have such a lovely fanbase. Some of my favourite people have came into my life via Twin Atlantic
14. Let's just get this out of the way, nobody knew the words to Ex El, but we all loved it anyway... then we learnt what Sam was actually saying and although we're still trying to get over the lyrics, we love it.
15. They're genuine, they don't act like they're this egotistical rock band... although Sam is referred to as being arrogant, but he's such a lovely person
16. Without Twin Atlantic, I wouldn't know @twitatlantic, @MASTERCASSIUS, @kryfaulkner (and now she's one of my favourite people, love you girl!) and so many other people
17. No Sleep
18. I'm sorry just go look at a photo of Sam McTrusty...
19. I'm sorry, did you say your autotune band was talented? Go listen to Yes, I Was Drunk
20. Sam's legs are longer than my will to live
21. Have you heard their cover of Crash by Usher? Because that speaks louder than anything.
22. GLA
23. Great Divide
24. Free
25. Vivarium
26. And the one that we cannot forget... A Guidance From Colour
27. The Chaser
28. Half of their song titles make no sense, but you know, we love them anyway.
29. Their lyrics
30. Their lyrics are more relatable than half the stuff that is classed as good music.
31. The way Sam say's grace (but that might just be because that's my name)

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
