Single Review: Wide Awake by Hear Lies

Okay so yes, I have another band on the books now... but that's all good! I was actually approached by Sam Christmas (Best Of Enemies) about doing this post, and as soon as I heard the track, I knew I had to do it! That's when you know it's a good song! However, because Hear Lies is a new band to the LifeIsALemon squad, I will be doing a combined song and band review! So let's get into this!
HEAR LIES

So Hear Lies are a four-piece rock band, that consists of the following
Orion Powell - Vocals
Glenn Rice - Guitar
James Macdonald - Guitar
Jake Holmes - Drums
FFO - Jimmy Eat World, Deaf Havana, You Me At Six
So let's talk about this new video for Wide Awake!
Wide Awake was the fourth track on their EP, and they've just TODAY released the video for it! And all I'm going to say is, it's amazing.
The video reminds me of the likes of Stay by Mayday Parade (if you've seen that then it's just as heartbreaking). It's this heartbreaking mini-film style video, that really just makes you super emotional, however, I can now watch it without crying (after a good 30 times). It's such a beautiful, moving video and I think it really does do the song justice. I always get sceptical when I review a new band because I worry about if I dislike the content, however, I had nothing to be worried about with Hear Lies. They're an incredibly talented band that really do deserve some love and affection, all their links will be listed below for you to go and show them some love on!
I absolutely adore the song, and it's quite a catchy song considering it does wish to break your heart which is just lovely! I don't want to spoil the video, but it's very moving, and it's worth the few minutes that it takes to view it!
Overall, I'm going to go with a 4.5 out of 5 lemons. It's a solid video, and I look forward to keeping an eye out for anything else they decide to put out in the future. The video does offer a lot, which is nice because I get bored when watching a music video that doesn't offer me anything!

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
