Band Review: Bloodlines

Bloodlines
bloodlines
Bloodlines are a Scottish alt-rock band (yet again another Scottish alt-rock band here). The band consists of Jamie Coltart, Andrew MacGillivray, Steve Bull and Jamie Allanach.
I came across this band, thanks to my favourite band (which for people who don't know is Twin Atlantic) and the only way I can describe Bloodlines is;
Twin Atlantic + The Xcerts = Bloodlines
musical math!
But that is pretty much the only way I can think to describe them, like they remind me of Twin Atlantic, but they also remind me of The Xcerts and I feel like they're a perfect combination of the two of them.
The vocals aren't drowned out by the instrumental aspect of the band, they're very much a modern rock band, and if that isn't your taste, then they aren't for you, but you should still give them a try. They're not one of them bands that seems to fluctuate between genre's they very much stay true to their genre and they do it really well.
I will say that my favourite song is Cathedral and I can't exactly explain why but I just love that song.
When it comes to lemon ratings, I'm gonna be slightly harsh and say 4 out of 5 lemons, but that's only because I don't want to give half lemons. I do really love them and technically it'd be 9/10 so I do really rate them. But go check them out, because they're really good!!!!

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
