EP Review: The Illusion Of Being Fair by Fast Car To Florence

Fast Car To Florence dropped a new EP on Friday called The Illusion Of Being Fair and do you want to know what’s not fair? HOW GOOD THIS EP IS. Like it’s not fair on any other band.

The Illusion Of Being Fair
The EP consists of;
  • It Gets Old
  • Sick On My Own
  • Just Smile
  • Off The Shoulder
  • Something Better

And let me just say, this EP is the best thing they’ve ever done. There isn’t one song on this EP that isn’t a tune!

TIOBF takes you on an emotional journey, since It Gets Old was released I’ve absolutely loved it. And it just blends into the EP so well, it 100% compliments the EP by being the opening track.

And then it’s Sick On My Own which is possibly my second favourite song on the EP. It’s such a relatable song, and it hits me somewhere that I forgot I could be hit. It’s a song that makes me very emotional and it’s also so catchy and it gets stuck in your head.

Then it transitions into Just Smile which I’ve done a full review on and it’s known that I absolutely adore this song. Again it’s a relatable song and I love when I can relate to a song and interpret it in my own way and find a meaning in the song that’s personal to me. And Just Smile definitely has some meaning to me. As soon as I heard this song when it was first released I got so excited about this EP, and it really did live up to the hype.  It’s a song that makes me want to scream and although it isn’t heavy enough for me to scream the lyrics, it’s a song that hits me that hard that I want to scream the lyrics.

Moving onto track 4 we have Off The Shoulder which is my favourite track off the EP. As soon as I heard this song I was in love with it. It’s so catchy and it really is ah absolute tune. For the past couple days it’s been stuck in my head and it’s already in my top 5 most listened to tracks currently. This track makes me feel similarly to Just Smile with the fact that it makes me want to scream the lyrics. Especially when it gets to the chorus. It’s without a doubt my favourite song on the EP. The depth of the sound in this song has me hooked as well.

The last track on the EP is Something Better and again this song does not disappoint. There isn’t one song on the EP that disappoints. The sound on this track is different from the other four though. But it’s the perfect sound to end the EP with and the sound does change part way through the song. Again the lyrics really do hit home and make me emotional and I love when music makes me emotional. I absolutely adore this song. It’s definitely a song that could only either end or start the EP because of the sound in comparison to the other tracks but it’s still a beautiful sound and it really does finish the EP off perfectly because of its placement.

Overall, I have to say that this really is the best thing that Fast Car To Florence have released and it’s incredible. It didn’t disappoint and I was pretty excited for this, and honestly I’m absolutely blown away with how incredible this is. If you haven’t listened to it yet then YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO IT RIGHT NOW. It’s incredible and I’m so impressed and proud of them for this EP. The Illusion Of Being Fair really is the best thing that Fast Car have released.

I’m going to give this a solid 5/5 lemons because I really cannot find one fault with this, it’s incredible and it really is the best thing they’ve done and I’m excited to see what they release next and if it can beat The Illusion Of Being Fair.

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;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar

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
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them!

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 …
