Music Review: You Me At Six and Deaf Havana

So bands have been dropping new music here, there and everywhere. And I am 100% down with it, although my bank account isn't with all the new albums.

You Me At Six
You Me At Six are back! They are back and they're announced their next album VI and I'm super hyped for it. However, to go along with the announcement they dropped 2 new songs. Yes, TWO! And if you haven't heard them yet, how? The new songs are phenomenal.
Let's start with 3AM.
3AM gives me such Night People vibes, and I love it. Lyrically, this song is just a masterpiece, but, I mean it's a masterpiece in every way. It's such a good song. The roots of the song are definitely You Me At Six, there is no doubt that it's a You Me At Six song, but it's bigger, bolder and better.if you like You Me At Six, then you'll like 3AM.
To go with 3AM, they released the big edgy brother... Fast Forward.
I think Fast Forward is my favourite of the two, it's very much the edgy brother to 3AM. Again, it's classic You Me At Six. There's no doubt about that. The chorus is extremely catchy and it reminds me of that episode of Black ish the episode where Jack goes around constantly saying "Put some Uvo on it" because that's how I feel with this song. Let's just take a moment and appreciate how great it is that You Me At Six are back.
Deaf Havana
They're back! They're back, let's just take a moment to appreciate that both Deaf Havana and You Me At Six are back around the same time. Like yes, I'm here for this. I'm down for this comeback.
If you are a fan of Deaf Havana then you may have mixed feelings about this, but they dropped a new song called Sinner. If you didn't know it was Deaf Havana, you wouldn't think it was. The song is very much a pop song, it's catchy. The lyrics are miserable as most things that come from Deaf Havana are, but Sinner is one of them songs that although it's miserable it doesn't sound it. It's a stereotypical pop song, and that's why it's received mixed feelings. I love it, but my music taste is quite flexible. You've still got your guitars and drums and miserable lyrics, but it sounds unlike their other stuff, but it's good, it's catchy and if you're more into pop rock then it may be a song for you.

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
