Single Review: Just Smile by Fast Car To Florence

Fast Car came back with a new bop AND OH MY GOSH JUST YES. It may be better than their last single, and that was A BOP. This is like a next level bop.

The new single is called Just Smile (sorry boys, I don't smile a lot) AND NOT ONLY IS IT INCREDIBLE SOUND WISE but them lyrics... yes... yes. 100% yes. It's so good.
It's definitely got an edge to it, and it's such a catchy sound. I'd say it's the best song they've done to date, but it does still sound like Fast Car (don't worry, it's not a moment where we cry because a band changed their sound).
It came out at midnight yesterday (13th of January) and yes okay, there hasn't been that much time, but it's pretty much all I've been listening to.
Well done to Chris, Mike and Isaac but can I just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful the vocals are on this track? Just... it's one of those songs where you can pick out what each member has contributed and you can appreciate every aspect of the song.
Fast Car are an indie rock band in retrospect but this song doesn't sound like every other indie song. It's not one of them copycat songs, it's notably different from the crowd. It does still 100% have a vibe similar to the likes of The 1975 but it is different. It's still got that little something that makes it stand out from the crowd.
Also Isaac has like a tiny scream at the end, and you don't know you need that until you hear it. In all honesty, that's my entire feeling with this song, like yes I love Fast Car. I rank them as one of the best smaller bands, and one of the best local bands. But this song just makes me fall in love with them all over again.
Don't want to get into personal stuff on this blog, but this song is what I needed currently. Like lyrically, I needed this song. It's like a warm fuzzy hug. Like thank you.
The song is definitely incredible, and it's one of the first releases of the year in my music world, and it really doesn't disappoint. It's incredible.
If you haven't heard it then go and listen to it now! It's so good! And listen to the lyrics, and just yes. Listen to it, and if you like it, love it or appreciate it then show the guys some love because they deserve it. This song is incredible and it deserves lots of love and appreciation. All their links will below like normal.
Overall Just Smile gets a solid 5 and a half lemons out of 5 BECAUSE WHAT A BOP!!!
So yeah, check it out, show it some love, show Fast Car some love and just appreciate how golden the song is.

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…

It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
