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.

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
