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.

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
