My Top Songs Of All Time

A.N. So I ran a poll on Twitter to see which topics you wanted to see on Band Week, and this was the winner.
10. Critical Mistake by Neck Deep, now this is probably going to move higher up the list, but since the album hasn't even been out for a week, I'll place it here. It's such a great song, and it's Neck Deep! I mean The Peace and The Panic is such a hyped album... but it deserves the hype.
9. Just What I've Been Looking For by Scouting For Girls, S4G are my childhood, and I love them so much, but this song... it's like a hidden gem, because not everybody knows about it, with S4G most people know Elvis Ain't Dead, She's So Lovely, It's Not About You, This Ain't A Love Song and Heartbeat, but this song is just so beautiful, and it's a blessing.
8. Open Book by Fatherson, like I mentioned on Monday, Open Book is a beautiful song, but to know more about that, go and read about it. But I love this song so much, and Fatherson are the perfect band for this song, you know when you listen to a song and you think that it just suits a certain band? That's Open Book with Fatherson, Ross Leighton's voice really does compliment this song.
7. Eight Days by Twin Atlantic, okay, Eight Days, is a very Twin Atlantic song, it's got their bizarre lyrics, yet it's a masterpiece, it's like abstract art, it's beautiful although you're sometimes left thinking "What?!" Eight Days is a great song, with my favourite line being "I peeled you open, and took photographs of your insides, brings into focus that this camera can never lie."
6. Trigger by Deaf Havana, Trigger is my Deaf Havana equivalent of The Chaser, therefore, I play it to death and 9/10 when I'm listening to Deaf Havana I'm listening to Trigger although I love Deaf Havana to bits, yeah, Trigger is just one of them songs.
5. Good Days by Light You Up. This song is just... I love it, because 1. it's by Light You Up and 2. because it's one of them songs that's just relatable. "I have my good days like everyone else but it's my bad days that are something else" like, I can relate to that, and it's just a great song in general.
4. The World or Nothing by Deaf Havana, now this song is just... lyrically and musically it is fantastic and I love it to bits. It's not overly catchy, but it's still catchy and I love Deaf Havana so much!
3. The Chaser by Twin Atlantic, now if anybody knows me, you will know there has not been one day in the past year since it came out, that I have not listened to it. I drive everybody mad with how much I play it, but it's just such a good song, and it's really catchy... and it's Sam McTrusty, Ross McNae, Barry McKenna and Craig Kneale.
2. Star Girl by McFly since this song came out, this song has always been a staple in my music collection. I love this song so much, and I still remember my reaction when I first heard it on the radio, and I begged my dad to get me the single so because Motion In The Ocean hadn't come out at the time, and as soon as that came out, I was begging to go to Tesco and buy it.
1. Time For You To Stand Up by Twin Atlantic, this song is just so sarcastic and it's a great song. My favourite line is "You say you want distance from me, well don't stand so close." It's a great song by an amazing band!

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…

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!

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…
