Get To Know My Music Taste and Bands I Currently Love

So it's been a while since I wrote a blog post, I'm sorry. I needed a bit of time to get back to myself, put myself in a good mind frame and just be okay again.
This is a post I've wanted to do for a while because I always say "If you have a similar music taste to me" but I never expand on what that actually is. So I'm going to talk about my top bands, vocalists I love, current favourites. Albums I find great. I'm going to go through it all!
Okay, so mainly my genres of choice are rock and pop-punk, there are a few pop artists I listen to and I do listen to some pop-rock. And I listen to some post-hardcore bands and stuff, it is quite varied I go from Lewis Capaldi to Beartooth. But it's mainly different types of rock and pop-punk.
I'm going to take you through my all-time top bands now, and then some subcategories.
All Time Top 5
1. Twin Atlantic. Without a doubt. I love Twin Atlantic with my whole heart and I've been following them since like 2011 when Free was released, and I've seen them live twice and I really do love Twin more than any other band.
1 (part two). closely followed is Deaf Havana. I love Deaf Havana so much, they're such an incredible band. They are my joint-favourite in reality but Twin just has that little edge. But I just love them so much, they're incredible live and they're just incredible!
2. The Mocking Jays. Does this actually shock anyone? Because it probably doesn't. I love the boys in the band so much. They're just incredible and they deserve so much love and attention. They're so talented and they not long released their debut EP The Love Era so go check the boys out.
3. Four Year Strong. I loved FYS and then didn't listen to them for a while and now I'm back in love with them, like if Alan Day wants to hit me in the face then I'm cool with that. To understand why I love them so much you just have to listen to them! And watch a live set because INCREDIBLE.100% will see them next time they're in the UK.
4. Mayday Parade. I love Mayday, I've met Mayday. They've got a special place in my heart because they're a band that have been the soundtrack to some of my darkest nights.
5. A Day To Remember. I don't trust people who hate ADTR, okay? I don't. They're incredible and if I have to explain why then I'm worried about you.

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
