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.

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
