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.

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
