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.

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
