Why I Love Deaf Havana

A.N. So I ran a poll on Twitter to see which topics you wanted to see on Band Week, and this was a winner.
If you didn't know, Deaf Havana is my joint favourite band, and because I've done a Twin Atlantic reasons why it's only fair that I now do my Deaf Havana one.
Deaf Havana are just an amazing English alt-rock band and I love them to bits, I love the fact they write their own songs, and they play their own songs... that's a big thing for me, I like a band with meaning in their lyrics, and well, Deaf Havana gives me feelings. James, Matt, Tom, Max and Lee are so talented and they deserve so much recognition, I've loved them for like four years now, and just... they still leave me speechless.
So why do I love them?
1. Have you seen them?
2. "I'm overweight, overtired and sick of trying to find an answer in these darkened city bars"
3. They're really good live! (and I wanna see them again... rip, to my wages)
4. Go and listen to Anemophobia and then Anemophobia part 2...
5. Their song titles
6. Have you heard the song St Paul's? Because I cry every time and it's so beautiful
7. James' voice has so many emotions
8. Each song tells a story...
9. Without Deaf Havana, I wouldn't know of Best of Enemies
10. James' tweets are golden
11. Hunstanton Pier
12. "Me and Lee were schooled in a tourist town with less culture than Jeremy Kyle" I mean, how can you not love that?
13. The Wasp Song
14. James' solo music, I mean, come on, beautiful!
15. The fan base isn't that dramatic, unlike certain fandoms...
16. Seattle was initially a solo song and ended up on All These Countless Nights
17. Sickago is such a tune
18. Relatable lyrics
19. "I'm not a pessimist but sometimes hope is missed or missing"
20. They cannot sound bad, they just don't, they're like angel's voices
21. They have some of the best songs in my opinion
22. "Nobody but you could make me feel this old at 22"
23. Just watch a live video or like a session video and you'll get why.

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: 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…

Introducing: Until You Disappear

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 

Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
