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.

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…

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

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…

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…
