Band Review: Fast Car To Florence

Fast Car To Florence
Fast Car To Florence are an indie pop rock band that I have to say are close to my heart, because they're from Nottingham... which was initially the main reason I decided to listen to them. As I'm from Nottinghamshire, it's a big thing for me when bands come from my area.

Now Fast Car To Florence, are probably a very universal band when it comes to someone with a similar music taste to me. They have a sound very similar to The 1975 (who I personally love) so I'd certainly say that if you like The 1975 you should check them out. (Important note: my music taste varies from pop to post-hardcore.) They recently just dropped a new EP, and I'm like "Yes, hello, why have I only just discovered you" although, they have only been around for just over a year. They're a band that just sound happy, they're one of them bands. Like, go listen to Hypnotise You and just spend that time listening to the song, and on nothing else. Appreciate the sound, appreciate Fast Car To Florence. Just appreciate how beautiful they sound.
This is how good Fast Car To Florence are... if you follow me on social media or have ever spoken to me more than once, you'll probably know my mum likes my genres of music, just not the majority of the bands I listen to. However, when I played her Hypnotise You, her reaction was "They don't sound bad." Which for my music taste and my mum, that's like the biggest compliment possible.
I listen to a lot of music, and although it's only March I think Address The World actually has a chance to be titled my favourite EP of the year when the 2018 Review comes out.
I'm slightly obsessed with listening to them currently, they're just really good and catchy. Their music just sounds happy, it has the right beat and Issac's voice compliments that.
Their music makes me feel good, it doesn't make me want to cry in a ball somewhere unlike when I listen to Mayday Parade. It makes me want to get up and dance. It makes me want to scream the lyrics. It makes me want to go to their gig and see them live.
I think Fast Car To Florence are going to be my favourite band discovery of the year, because well, go listen to them! Listen to them, and you'll see why.
My song recommendation: Hypnotise You and Eyes Shine
Now go listen to them! Links are below.
Lemon Rating: 5 out of 5 Lemons. I'd give more lemons if I could.

Purgatory by Nautical Mile

If you know me, or you're not new around here, then you will know that Nautical Mile is one of my all-time favourite bands. They're phenomenal, and I truly believe they are incapable of making bad music. They're the band behind my joint-favourite album of all time, and I never really shut up about them. So, if you're unfamiliar with them, then Nautical Mile are an Australian pop-punk/post-hardcore band! They're mind-blowingly incredible!  They announced that they had signed to Manic Kat Records, and they dropped a new song on Friday, they didn't really announce it, they just did it.  Straight off, I will admit that I couldn't resist listening to it, and I absolutely love it! I think it's incredible, but I don't want to say too much right now. We'll come back to this at the end.  So Purgatory is similar to some of the tracks we saw on The Only Way Is Through, but the chorus really hits the spot. The chorus goes so far, and Brodi's vocals!  Now

The Only Way Is Through by Nautical Mile, A Year On...

So, just over two weeks ago, The Only Way Is Through turned 1! If you have no idea what The Only Way Is Through is, then it's Nautical Mile's debut album. I've spoken about Nautical Mile a lot, on my socials and on here. Nautical Mile is in my top bands of all time, they are incredible! They are such a solid band and I have so much love and appreciation for them. I love them that much, that I probably would order their merch, but I'm kinda worried about umm shipping costs and import fees, especially when I'm a student and not on a lot of money.  This album kind of changed my life. It is solid, it is possibly in my top 3 albums of all time, and that takes a lot for me to say.  I found Nautical Mile not long after this album was released, and I've been hooked on them ever since. It started with Wake Up, and now I just love every single song they've put out.  The whole point of me doing this post is to reflect on how I felt about the album a year ago, and compa

Killing Giants by Holygood

  Holygood are back! After what seems like forever, but in reality, hasn't actually been that long Holygood are back and they've released their 4th track of the year. This time, they're back with a new vibe and sound whilst still sounding very much like classic Holygood.  Now, Holygood's last release was Better Off Before which I still listen to a lot! I think it's the best song they've released, and it really is just an incredible track. However, because Better Off Before was as good as it was, I felt very reluctant about new music, because like I've said in posts on other bands, when the previous release is so incredible, how can a band really top that. That's my main thought when going into this track, is it as good as Better Off Before? Can they really top that release?  The intro had me a little confused, and very sceptical of what was about to happen. It's definitely got a lot of rap elements/influences within it, but that's not necessarily
