Band/EP Review: Don't Forget Rupert

Guess who's back with another review of a Nottingham band? Oh yeah, it's me. I'm back to promote another band from Nottingham because guess what? There really are some hidden gems of bands in Notts. This is essentially an EP review, but it's only fair that I give you a little insight into the band, and what I think of them. So let's go!
The band consists of:
Ben Martin- Vocals and Guitar
Lewis Henderson- Guitar
Lou Coe- Drums
Pete Cumpstone- Bassist
They're indie rock (which yes, okay we all know indie rock, alt rock and that sort of genre is my life) and they're like a love child of Panic! At The Disco and The 1975, I actually played one of their songs to my friend and she asked me if it was Panic! So, I mean, that's something.  AND THEY'RE A NOTTS BAND, JUST LET THAT SINK IN.
Don't Forget Rupert are honestly so good, like hello, yes, these some good stuff. I'm kinda digging their music currently, I mean if you're looking for a new band and you trust my opinion, then go and give Don't Forget Rupert a listen. Like, yes, you need these guys in your life. I always get scared of finding new bands that I love because I always worry about not loving a band as much as I should, or loving them too much. But honestly, I love Don't Forget Rupert and I will be going to see them (technically again, I mean it depends if we're classing the few songs I saw as seeing them).
The main reason, I am here though, is because on the 10th of August they dropped a new EP called Full Circle. Now Full Circle is amazing. My favourite song is definitely Get Fucked because hello, is this the new anthem? I will be surprised if Get Fucked is not in my most listened songs this month... that's how much I've listened to it, but I feel that way with the entire EP. It's like the mystical little EP, that's got the perfect sound of indie rock, Ben's vocals aren't drowned out either, which is something that puts me off a lot of music nowadays. I like to be able to hear what is being said. So when vocals are not drowned out I do really appreciate it.
Full Circle is an absolute masterpiece and lyrically it's a massive yes, like a triple yes. It's absolutely amazing, and if you haven't checked it out yet, then you should probably, no you should definitely go and give it a listen and show it some love. My top two tracks off the EP are Get Fucked and Time Takes It's Toll. I
The entire EP has an amazing rock vibe, and honestly like I just wanna scream about it from the rooftops because HAVE YOU EVER ENCOUNTERED SOMETHING SO PERFECT?
Honestly, Don't Forget Rupert are amazing, go and show them some love and if you like this post then let me know!
Overall both as a band, and for the EP... Don't Forget Rupert get 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…

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

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…

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals

Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
