Smaller Bands I Love That Deserve More Love...

So I'm going to give you some of the smaller bands that I love, and for reference and also if you want to listen to slightly bigger and better-known bands, my favourites are;
Twin Atlantic
Deaf Havana,
A Day To Remember,
The Story So Far,
Neck Deep,
State Champs,
With Confidence,
Mayday Parade,
Don Broco
So if you want to listen to a bigger band, they're my suggestions, especially Twin Atlantic and Deaf Havana because I love them so much, and if you follow me on Twitter you probably know that. But however, we are not here to talk about bigger bands, we're here to shine some light onto some smaller bands, now there's going to be some bands that are a lot bigger than others on this list, but all bands I am going to mention are bands I love a lot.
So here we go!
The first band I want to mention is Fatherson, now Fatherson is a Scottish alternative rock band (and yes, I did come across them via Twin Atlantic, I just like Scottish accents okay?!) and although a lot of the bands I listen to are alternative rock, Fatherson has this sound about that... they're softer, calmer, think about The 1975 meets Twin Atlantic, and that's probably Fatherson.
My favourite song by Fatherson, which I always tell people to listen to is Open Book, and my favourite version of this song is the Γ’ran MΓ³r Session version, it's absolutely beautiful.
The second band I want to mention is Best Of Enemies, now a while ago I did do a band review of them, and to this day I still love them, I listen to them regularly, and honestly, that band are just... I don't want to repeat everything I said in the review but I do love Best Of Enemies a lot, and my favourite songs that I always tell people to check out, is Way Of Life and Call To Arms, I love BoE and honestly, they deserve so much love.
The third band I want to mention is Stop The Rain, now Stop The Rain... again are a Scottish alternative rock band... (I really like Scottish alt rock bands) and again, I've done a review again before, and I love them so much, they deserve so much love. All three of their current songs are golden, and they're new music coming soon (may or may not review it when it come out, if they want me to of course) I've never met them but I've spoken to Blair a few times and he's so lovely, and honestly, what's better than an amazingly talented band being lovely? You can not go wrong with listening to any of their songs.
The fourth band I want to mention is Atlas Run, again a Scottish alt rock band (I told you, I love 'em) and they're a new band in my life, I only came across them when I received a DM on Twitter (@MyVoiceBrandNew and @mvbnphotography) asking if I wanted to do a review (stay tuned for that, it's coming soon!) and from the first song (Chasing The Storm) I was like "I love them, I need them in my life" they're amazing, and I don't want to ramble on because review coming soon, But honestly, check them out.
The last band I want to mention is *(insert Jesse Katsopolis voice here*) Have Mercy who for once, aren't Scottish or British, they're American. Now, I've seen Have Mercy live, I saw them when they supported Mayday Parade on their 2016 European Black Lines tour, obviously, I'd listened to them before the show, but when I heard them live I fell in love with them just a little bit more. My favourite Have Mercy song is Two Years, I also really Pete Rose and Babe Ruth along with Reaper (it wins me over because it references a Chevrolet Camaro). I don't think they have any song that's bad so you should check them out.
All five bands are amazing, and I love them all to bits, and they're smaller than most of the bands I listen to, so check them out if you want.

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

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…
