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.

Other bands I love but just don't make the top 5:
- The Story So Far
- Seaway
- State Champs
- Neck Deep

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…

Introducing: Autumn Fires

Welcome to instalment 2 of Small Band Week 2! 
Now, I have mentioned Autumn Fires a couple of times here in other posts, but I am so happy to say that I am going to be bringing you some content on them properly now! If you didn't know, Autumn Fires were one of the bands I really wanted to work with, and I'm now bringing you content. I will be bringing you a review of their new single when it drops in a couple of weeks! But let's get into this! 

So, Autumn Fires is a pop-punk band from London that consists of the following; 

Charlotte Haimes - Vocals
Callum Skea - Guitar
Jamie Smart - Guitar
Jay Matthews - Bass
Ryan Green - Drums

They're an incredibly talented band, and I love them! They currently have 3 songs out right now, so as always, I'm going to talk you through my thoughts on each track. 

The first song Autumn Fires released was Waking Up in Vegas, and what a song this is! 
I love the beat this song, I love Charlotte's voice, I love that nobody is drowning the othe…
