Song Review: Whirlpool by Distant Blue

Whirlpool by Distant BlueBAACD929-3132-4BDA-98DD-F0DD5F0BF7A2
If you follow me on Twitter, then you may know that I love Distant Blue, I think they're great. I don't know if it's because they're pop-punk and I'm a sucker for pop-punk, or if it's because they're a local band. But either way, I love them a lot.
On Friday, Distant Blue dropped a new song. Yes, it was a big day for music, but as soon as it turned midnight, the first song I went to listen to was Whirlpool, because I was really hyped for it. This is probably down to the fact that Amber Leaf has been in my most listened to tracks for two months now I think... and when I say it's been in there, I mean it's been right up in the top 5. So, of course, I was super hyped for Whirlpool and it didn't disappoint.
I want to listen to Whirlpool all day every day on repeat. Like, what is this beauty? Whirlpool is a masterpiece. My tiny little, not so little, baby piggle even reacted to it... I can't tell if she loved it or got scared, but she didn't try and jump away from it, so I'm taking that as a good sign.
Whirlpool is very much a traditional pop-punk song. I don't just mean like lyrically, or the song is generic pop-punk. Every aspect of it is pop-punk and it's amazing. If you haven't heard it already? What are you doing with your life? Go listen to it!
It's a solid 5/5 lemons.

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

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

Desensitized by The Ones You Forgot

  Welcome back to the bog once again, where again, I'm talking about a new release by a new band. This is a band I've only mentioned once before on the blog, but The Ones You Forgot were lovely enough to allow me to do this post, so I thought that now was the perfect time to properly talk about them.  The Ones You Forgot released their latest track Desensitized on Friday the 5th and just like their previous releases this song is a belter! Now, this song is incredible, from the intro you expect this to be a slow track, but in reality, it's a pretty fast-paced, incredible track.  The vocals on this track are so beautiful, they're enough to win anybody over, and the lyrics that accompany the vocals, just yes! Incredible! This song is a massive win just off those two elements alone. The drums, guitar and bass on this track are also incredible, and I'm just in love with this track.  This is a track that I knew I'd like but didn't expect to be this in love with. H
