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.

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…
