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.

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
