Band Review: Left Hand Lane

Left Hand Lane are a small, local Notts band. They're in the same scene as some of the other bands I write about including, The Mocking Jays, Don't Forget Rupert and Distant Blue and that is how I initially came across them. In this post I will give my thoughts on their new single Skank, but I also want to heavily concentrate on this being a band review. Also before I dive too deep into this, I just want to say a massive thanks to Pearce for making this an easy blog post for me, as he was really helpful and co-operative and he was actually the one to approach me about doing this blog post!

Okay, so Left Hand Lane are a sort of alt rock sort of band, but they also have HEAVY punk elements to them, I don't want to call them punk rock because they're alt rock, but they do have some punk roots there.
FFO- "For fans of anyone who enjoys music, we don't really aim for an audience. We gig a lot and the people who enjoy seeing us come back and watch us again" ~ Pearce
The four-piece consists of ;
Jimbo- Lead singer/guitar
George- Guitar
Pearce- Bass
Bobbi- Drums
Now onto my opinion of the band, okay so they aren't my favourite Notts band, it's really no secret who that is, however, they're definitely up there! Anybody that knows me, knows that I'm a sucker for all types of alt-rock, it's my go-to genre. And I do like their sound, it's definetly growing on me the more that I listen to Skank, but I can't be too critical as everybody has to start somewhere and Skank was their debut single. And I do enjoy it, it's probably about a 4/5 for me, and I am really excited to see what else they put out later. I'm excited for what other music they may have to be released, and I am intending to catch them live later this month. As I'm back into the swing of going to gigs more often than I have the past few months, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they have to offer as a live band. I do already have some expectations for their live performance because 1. I've seen Pearce perform with Distant Blue and 2. Their sound makes me think there shall be a fair bit of energy within their set, but I guess it's just a matter of waiting and seeing what they have to offer.
Overall I’ll give them a 4/5 lemons and I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on what else they get up to.

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
