Single Review: Was That Kiss Meant For Me? by The Publics

So this song has been out for just over a month now, but I just haven't had the time to write a post, so here we go.
The Publics are a local Notts band, and I've got to say the song is doing incredibly well on Spotify, with them having near enough 2000 monthly listeners and the song having over 4000 streams, and to say it's only been out just over a month and it was their first song it's doing really well.
The Publics are an indie rock band, and the song gives me a mixture of Sex Pistols, The Jam, Catfish and The Bottlemen and Arctic Monkeys vibes.
It's not a bad song, I can see the appeal and it's a sound that's pretty popular currently. If you are into those sort of bands and like alt and indie bands then The Publics could be perfect for you.
It's definitely a sound that I'm hearing a lot more currently, but Was That Kiss Meant For Me? is in no way a bad song, it's a song that I personally wouldn't reach for the most, but I'd still willingly listen to it. But that's just down to personal preference when it comes to them not being something I'd necessarily gravitate towards.
I like the lyrics, I kind of like the sound it's something I would listen to, but not something that would be my first choice. The one thing that makes me not like it as much as I could, and the reason why it doesn't sit as high as it could with me is how the drums are very overpowering in comparison to the vocals, and there's just something I personally don't like in songs, a lot of bands do it, it's just not something I like though. And maybe if that wasn't the case then maybe I could like the song more. I will still keep The Publics on my radar though. If that wasn't the case with the song though being dominated by the drums I would probably like it a lot more because the sound isn't bad, the sound is pretty good, it's just the dominance of the drums and how it almost blocks out the vocals.
I can see why a lot of people would love it, and I do recommend checking them out, and if you like the sound then they're playing The Maze in Notts on the 26th of February, which is next Tuesday.
Overall I'd give it a 3.8 maybe a 4 lemons out of 5. Because personally it isn't my favourite thing, but from like a blogger perspective then yeah, it's pretty good. You know it's catchy enough and lyrically I like it, so go check it out if you wanna check out some new music,

Check back next week, at the usual time for my opinions on Fast Car To Florence's new EP.

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…

Introducing: Light Grey

Oh, hi! Welcome back to another introducing post! Today I'm bringing you Ireland's finest, Light Grey! They followed me on Twitter and one thing led to another and now we're here! Believe me, you're not ready to meet this band. They're insane! 

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar
Mikey - Bass 
Conor - Drums

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible! 

For fans of - Waterparks, All Time Low, State Champs and Give Me A Reason. 

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…
