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.

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

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

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
