Single Review: Fall Before I Fall by Valencia

Single Review: Fall Before I Fold by Valencia

If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I love Valencia, and they came off hiatus about two years ago, so the fact that they have finally dropped some new music is quite exciting. The sound has changed, as expected. We’re not talking the sound of their music before, it is similar in a way to Dancing With A Ghost, however, it is still a different sound from it. I have been taking some time out from concentrating on music all the time, so I actually found out about this song dropping when I checked my business email and found that I’d got an email saying Valencia had dropped a new song. It was a pleasant surprise.
The song is still 100% pop punk/ alt rock. And it’s not a bad song, I will say that it’s certainly not as good as the likes of The Space Between or Spinning Out. It’s not bad but it’s not my favourite thing that they’ve released. It’s a good song, and it’s still Valencia. But, obviously every time a band changes their sound there’s a bit of adapting to do to it. I do like the song quite a bit, but they have released better stuff, but it’s just one song. If there’s going to be an album, then obviously there’s going to be more songs to judge, instead of just the one.
The intro is heavier than the rest of the song, which I would have preferred for the heavier part of the song to be further into the song rather than the beginning. That’s just a personal opinion though, it’s not really a criticism on the song. It’s not bad, it’s a song that I don’t love, but I wouldn’t turn it off if it came on. I do love Valencia so it’s nothing against the band, it’s just a song that I don’t love, I can appreciate it, especially since they haven’t released music in like six years, so of course the sound is going to have changed, but they’ve still stuck to their roots which I really appreciate, they haven’t gone completely off track and changed their entire sound, and they do have songs that have a similar vibe to them, but yeah, it’s not my favourite thing they’ve released but I do believe Spinning Out is the best song they’ve ever done.
Overall I’ll give it a solid 3.7 lemons out of 5, because it’s not bad but it’s just not my favourite thing ever.

Demon on the Run by Four Thousand Miles

  After what feels like forever (when in reality it's only been 6 months), Four Thousand Miles are back! Because it's been so long, and I know over the past few months there's been a big increase in the traffic to this blog, and there are new readers, let me just give you a brief recap on who 4KM are!   Four Thousand Miles are an international rock band, and their name comes from the fact that between Alex M and Lionel there's 4000 miles!  The band consists of;  Alex F - Vocals and guitar Lionel - Guitar Alex M - Drums  Liam - Bass They now have 3 tracks out, Lonely, Reflections and the brand new track Demon on the Run!  For anybody that cares, Four Thousand Miles are my joint-favourite small band and I would probably sell a few organs for them, also will eventually get a tattoo for them when little miss rona decides to leave us all alone.  Anyway, let's get into the thoughts on the new song!  I was super hyped for this song to drop, and I just knew they wouldn'

The Only Way Is Through by Nautical Mile, A Year On...

So, just over two weeks ago, The Only Way Is Through turned 1! If you have no idea what The Only Way Is Through is, then it's Nautical Mile's debut album. I've spoken about Nautical Mile a lot, on my socials and on here. Nautical Mile is in my top bands of all time, they are incredible! They are such a solid band and I have so much love and appreciation for them. I love them that much, that I probably would order their merch, but I'm kinda worried about umm shipping costs and import fees, especially when I'm a student and not on a lot of money.  This album kind of changed my life. It is solid, it is possibly in my top 3 albums of all time, and that takes a lot for me to say.  I found Nautical Mile not long after this album was released, and I've been hooked on them ever since. It started with Wake Up, and now I just love every single song they've put out.  The whole point of me doing this post is to reflect on how I felt about the album a year ago, and compa

Purgatory by Nautical Mile

If you know me, or you're not new around here, then you will know that Nautical Mile is one of my all-time favourite bands. They're phenomenal, and I truly believe they are incapable of making bad music. They're the band behind my joint-favourite album of all time, and I never really shut up about them. So, if you're unfamiliar with them, then Nautical Mile are an Australian pop-punk/post-hardcore band! They're mind-blowingly incredible!  They announced that they had signed to Manic Kat Records, and they dropped a new song on Friday, they didn't really announce it, they just did it.  Straight off, I will admit that I couldn't resist listening to it, and I absolutely love it! I think it's incredible, but I don't want to say too much right now. We'll come back to this at the end.  So Purgatory is similar to some of the tracks we saw on The Only Way Is Through, but the chorus really hits the spot. The chorus goes so far, and Brodi's vocals!  Now
