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.

Issac Anderson- Vocals and Guitar
Chris Barber- Drums
Mike Groves- Bassist and Vocals
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.

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: Autumn Fires

Welcome to instalment 2 of Small Band Week 2! 
Now, I have mentioned Autumn Fires a couple of times here in other posts, but I am so happy to say that I am going to be bringing you some content on them properly now! If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals
Callum Skea - Guitar
Jamie Smart - Guitar
Jay Matthews - Bass
Ryan Green - Drums

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track. 

The first song Autumn Fires released was Waking Up in Vegas, and what a song this is! 
I love the beat this song, I love Charlotte's voice, I love that nobody is drowning the othe…

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…
