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)

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

Introducing: Autumn Fires

Welcome to instalment 2 of Small Band Week 2! 
Now, I have mentioned Autumn Fires a couple of times here in other posts, but I am so happy to say that I am going to be bringing you some content on them properly now! If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals
Callum Skea - Guitar
Jamie Smart - Guitar
Jay Matthews - Bass
Ryan Green - Drums

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track. 

The first song Autumn Fires released was Waking Up in Vegas, and what a song this is! 
I love the beat this song, I love Charlotte's voice, I love that nobody is drowning the othe…

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…
