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.

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po

Desensitized by The Ones You Forgot

  Welcome back to the bog once again, where again, I'm talking about a new release by a new band. This is a band I've only mentioned once before on the blog, but The Ones You Forgot were lovely enough to allow me to do this post, so I thought that now was the perfect time to properly talk about them.  The Ones You Forgot released their latest track Desensitized on Friday the 5th and just like their previous releases this song is a belter! Now, this song is incredible, from the intro you expect this to be a slow track, but in reality, it's a pretty fast-paced, incredible track.  The vocals on this track are so beautiful, they're enough to win anybody over, and the lyrics that accompany the vocals, just yes! Incredible! This song is a massive win just off those two elements alone. The drums, guitar and bass on this track are also incredible, and I'm just in love with this track.  This is a track that I knew I'd like but didn't expect to be this in love with. H
