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.

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
